4 Unique Ways Hexagon Search Is Using Social
Founded in 2004, Hexagon Search is a smart and savvy data-driven staffing company, offering a
customised talent search experience and deep insights into local markets for budding start-ups
and Fortune 500 companies. Embedding the "non-mediocre approach” for talent acquisition in
India, it helps its clients acquire workforce of the future at the highest operational efficiency.
Every recruitment agency is facing a multitude of challenges, ranging from increased
competition and difficulty in client acquisition, to finding the right candidate from an ever
increasing talent pool. Hexagon was no different. To address these challenges, it was
looking for an effective medium to engage with candidates while showcasing its domain
expertise to potential clients.
Key Challenges faced by Hexagon Search:
Greater Talent To Choose From
Lack of Candidate Commitment
Hexagon was quick to understand that most of their prospective candidates were social media savvy
millennials. The only way to increase clientele vs. the competition was to leverage the power of social
to its entirety. Hexagon’s social manoeuvres started to show prowess right from the start and bolstered
its confidence with encouraging results within a period of 6 months.
Here are 4 unique ways how they are making the most of social!
1. Creating In Demand Market Reports And Guides
Hexagon wanted to publish content that spoke about the prominent issues in the industry. By
leveraging and scrutinizing over 13,000 data points available from the LinkedIn Recruiter tool, it
formulated comprehensive reports and guides that not only gave it brand visibility, but also
generated 1600+ leads!

2. Putting Thought Leadership Into Action
Prashant Shringarpure, Founder & CEO at Hexagon, is known to move and inspire people with
innovative ideas, and scale those ideas into sustainable change, not just in one company but in the
entire recruitment industry. Using LinkedIn to his aid, he promptly tapped into the trending topic of
discontent amongst IT employees with respect to serving long notice periods, by launching a one
question survey on Hexagon's company page. The aim was to garner opinions regarding the ideal
notice period in India. As a consequence, an idea was brought to reality with the launch of the No More
Than 30 Days movement.
3. Measuring Pulse Of The Market Via Social Listening
In order to be relevant to the desired TG, Hexagon moulded its content on social media by harnessing
the power of social listening. The company went beyond just monitoring digital conversations and
used social listening to create & share content that addressed specific challenges faced by their
audience. This translated into driving relevant traffic to the company website.
For instance, the team leveraged Google keyword planner to discover opportunities and
created content around those key terms.
4. LinkedIn For Social Media Engagement
With a single minded focus on brand visibility, Hexagon effectively used LinkedIn as a go to medium
to connect & engage directly with employers and employees.
By funnelling social listening data, the company exercised its subject matter expertise, reaching the
right people at the best time with the most insightful content. And the key to it all was consistency
and regularity in posting relevant updates on topics such as recruitment, retention, compensation,
employee management etc.
