TikTok in Focus: 3 Ways to Energise your Gen Z Recruitment

TikTok is the home of Gen Z, establishing itself as a strong platform for brands to connect with this generation. In fact, Recruiting Daily reveals that 74% of Gen Z use TikTok as a way to search for information. Why? Because TikTok offers faster and more engaging content. So how can brands use this platform as a strategic recruitment tool? Let’s explore three attention-grabbing techniques that will unlock the recruitment power of TikTok.

Authentic Storytelling📣

Authenticity is key for Gen Z, placing a lot of value in working with people-centric organisations. Through sharing authentic and genuine content including behind-the-scenes insights, workplace values and day-in-the-life videos, brands can forge connections and build trust with potential candidates, providing insight into what it’s like to work for them.

Edutainment Content🌟

This generation is the next to enter the workforce and they eagerly search for advice and information. TikTok reports that 77% of users want brands to teach them something new. By publishing creative content that highlights career advice, tips for professional growth and industry insights, brands can leave Gen Z feeling educated and entertained.

Building Community🤝

TikTok is more than an entertainment hub; it’s a space for users to connect, share, and engage with one another. Brands can foster a sense of community by actively engaging with users through video duets or comments and encouraging user-generated content. Joining the TikTok community enables brands to showcase their culture and connect with Gen Z.

By embracing TikTok as a strategic recruitment platform, brands can drive engagement and boost awareness on the fastest growing social network, attracting the new generation of recruits.
