Posted on May 3rd, 2013 Read time: 1 minutes

HR administrations are a valuable tool for any organization, and linking human resource professionals with corporate social responsibilities can enhance recruiting for top talent. HR has the unique perspective about the workforce and can improve corporate social responsibility, or CSR, for businesses looking to expand the company's engagement within the community. Staying in touch with CSR opportunities can help recruiters make the most out of the recruitment process.

According to the Society for Human Resource Management, coordinating recruiting along CRS initiatives can attract strong new hires for the business. The company's philanthropy and reputation within the community may market the brand as one that not only cares about the local area but also has interest in how its workforce is treated.

Jobseekers prefer to be part of a positive corporate environment and a company that promotes itself as an ethical brand encourages employee involvement within the community can attract the strongest talent.

HR professionals might want to consider staying in communication with executives about CSR goals to maintain a smooth recruitment process. Monitoring the relationship between recruiters and company managers creates a strong hiring atmosphere and aligning recruiting with long-term perspectives about CSR objects can avert any applicant confusion over the company brand. Recruiters who can speak to future volunteer opportunities can make the acquisition of top talent much easier.
