iGaming sector is one of the most recent but also one of the most prevalent and advanced industries. The convenience of iGaming has made it far more popular than in-person gambling at traditional casinos.
And because the iGaming sector grew so much, many online casinos and betting companies grew enormously and became a very attractive employer for not only for tech people but most any type of job seekers out there!
iGaming companies are offering countless job opportunities due to the nature of their business itself. Challenges in privacy, security, regulation, technology, and branding are constant and the roles are highly demanding. From IT, UX, design, content marketing, SEO, and PPC to managing directors etc.
The iGaming sector is now one of the most competitive industries when it comes to attracting and retaining talent, with highest employee turnover rate (according to LinkedIn more than 15%) than any other in the tech sphere.
Obviously, HR teams use tools including professional social media like LinkedIn and Xing, for finding the recruiting, but most often their efforts are compromised by the volume of information and noise these huge platforms have.
The most effective way to increase the employee loyalty, reduce employee turnover rate, attract and retain top talent is leveraging the full power of your employee (past and present) network. iGaming companies are no exception. An employee network open to past employees with an alumni program, is proven to be very effective in improving your brand as an employer. And if you power your alumni network by a specialized alumni platform the results multiply!
Below are four reasons why HR teams love the Alumni Reach platform, the comprehensive corporate alumni platform:
Reason #1: A full (and we mean full) suite of directory tools.
First and foremost, the core power of an alumni network lies in its ability to aggregate and share information across your past and current employee network. This is done first through building a company directory and then expanding it to include not only more contacts, but also detailed information that will help add value to everyone else in their network.
Alumni Reach not only equips companies with a simple, easily searchable directory of teams and members, but the HR teams using it are always raving about the detailed features it brings: custom internal tags, scoring, member data assessment, easy at-a-glance information (i.e., Current Position, Last Position Held at Company, Location), and more. Because the more accessible all of this information, the more powerful your network. And the more powerful your network, the more value you drive both for your alumni community and your business.
Reason #2: End-to-end recruitment tools.
Another major value-add of alumni networks for HR teams is how easily they assist with one of the HR team’s primary functions: recruitment. With Alumni Reach, HR teams enjoy a full suite of recruiting tools that enable them to easily share professional opportunities and give all network members the ability to make referrals in-platform. What’s more, once the referrals and candidates are in, you can receive applications directly through the platform and even schedule interviews and general networking events.
Reason #3: Simple tools and gamification features to enhance alumni engagement.
Whether you are an HR professional using the platform’s recruitment tools or a past employee looking for current opportunities, Alumni Reach facilitates all conversations by providing a full suite of engagement tools as well. From in-app messaging and discussion forum to a location map view of all network members and advanced search capabilities, Alumni Reach is truly a fan favorite when it comes to companies looking for easy-to-use, engaging platforms for their teams. Our gamification engine with an extensive library of missions, winning mechanisms, badges and rewards incentivizes thus maximizing user engagement.
Reason #4: Privacy, security and complete control of the content and the message.
Most often, employees and former employees’ groups on social media platforms are independent of the companies they are referring to, and they do not have any control over who joins these groups, or the message and the content exchanged in them. Alumni Reach offers private cloud-based platforms where members can only join if they are invited by their former employers, and where HR teams can monitor and control all aspects of the platform, making the necessary adjustments according to their policies.
These are just a few of the reasons that top companies in the competitive Tech and Education industry choose Alumni Reach for their employee and alumni engagement efforts. These benefits apply to iGaming companies tenfold. Give your HR team the tools to power up their recruiting process and help your business thrive!
