The Execu|Search Group is proud to announce that we have been awarded the Best Recruitment Agency/Staffing Firm Mobile Website Award by the 2014 Global Mobile Recruitment Awards.
The awards program, which was founded by Mike Taylor, Managing Director of Web Based Recruitment, aims to acknowledge excellence and innovation in mobile recruitment while raising awareness of the importance of having a mobile recruitment strategy. After making the shortlist of three companies from different countries for the recruitment agency category, The Execu|Search Group was selected for the honor.
“As we’ve grown as a company, it’s been really important to us to adapt our business with the changing times,” explains Hannah DeGiovanni, Chief Marketing Officer of The Execu|Search Group. “As technology evolves and becomes more engrained in the hiring process, we knew that a growing number of professionals were searching for jobs from mobile devices, and wanted to make sure our site was easily accessible for all of the users who were visiting us while on the go.”
As a result, with ease of use always being a priority, in 2013 we re-developed our main site using adaptive technology for a responsive design in order to display content optimized for different devices – computers, tablets, or smartphones. So far, traffic to The Execu|Search Group’s site from mobile devices has increased 46% year over year, with application rates and general engagement rates on the upswing as well.
“With our responsive design website, the ease of use improves the process for every visitor to our site, no matter what device they’re using or what content they may be trying to find,” notes Hannah. “With one site address that reformats for all devices, the site is truly a one stop shop, and it reduces the confusion that can sometimes exist when users need to move back and forth between sites or apps for different intended actions.”
