The Covid-19 crisis has brought huge changes to our lives and people have had moments of hesitation about changing jobs. It has become increasingly difficult for our client Adecco to find suitable candidates.
With the help of Pivott, Adecco, the world’s leading provider of HR services, has achieved its goal of attracting an additional 4,000 (+40%) candidates by the end of 2021. We chose a full-scale campaign consisting of two stages.
“Starting with this project, we analyzed Adecco’s voice share, which was far below its fair share compared to its major competitors. In Belgium, Adecco invested much less in Google, Facebook, Instagram than its peers.
If we consider total share of voice, the gap widens even more. Adecco and Pivott did not hesitate to take on the challenge and, to reverse the trend, developed a complete funnel strategy.”
For the first phase of the plan, Pivott worked on an exclusively digital campaign, oriented SEO/SEA/Social in order to amplify the spontaneous notoriety of Adecco on the Belgian market of job seekers. The first dive of the strategy was aimed at active workers.
It was a battle for the same profiles as Adecco’s competitors to reach their target audience.
For the second phase, the objective was to influence the “hesitant”, people looking for a change in their life, without however actively looking for another job. It was therefore necessary to inspire them and encourage them to visit the Adecco website.
For this, Pivott has created an impactful radio campaign with the help of its partners Spaakgebek and Space. Broadcast on traditional networks in the North and South of the country, with a format of 10 and 25 seconds, this was also an opportunity for Adecco to be present for the first time on Spotify. The campaign was combined with a contest that allowed people who found a job through Adecco to win an all-in vacation.
The creative idea behind it was to use irritating sounds (metro sounds, bus, machine/production sounds) slowly switching to sea waves sounds. Searching for a job that fits you better? Take off with Adecco: find your perfect job and win a dream vacation! Take a chance now!
