Introducing the Crowdstaffing Knowledge Base (AKA the CrowdWiki)

Hey there, recruiters! It’s Friday, and most of us are probably ready for the weekend, so let’s keep it short and sweet, shall we? Today, we’d like to introduce you to our Knowledge Base, which we just renamed as the CrowdWiki. Let’s get to it.

Over the last several months, we’ve been working hard to develop a comprehensive wiki for our recruiting partners. It’s part of our commitment to helping you become successful in your careers. The CrowdWiki is a living, growing source of information that you have exclusive access to through the Crowdstaffing platform. We’re always adding new tips and resources to it, so if you ever have an idea for something you’d like to see, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us!

The CrowdWiki is super easy to use. From the main platform, just click the question mark in the top right corner. That will bring you to the front page of the wiki. You can either click on the Recruiting Partners tab to start exploring individual sections, or simply type your query into the search bar. Here’s what you’ll find inside:

  • If you’re a new recruiting partner, the Platform Guide should be your first stop. It’s an extensive look at how each facet of the Crowdstaffing platform works. You’ll find tutorials for just about everything you can do using our platform, whether it be adding a candidate to your pool, turning on updates for a specific client, or something else.

  • The Recruiter FAQs and Resources section will be your go-to whenever you have a question or need information on some of our more befuddling policies. For example, if a candidate asks you about sick leave, just head to the Resources section to get the answer. Some states have different requirements for taking time off, but don’t worry – we cover them all in the wiki. You’ll also find a wealth of other resources in this section as well, like tips for Boolean sourcing, information about candidate benefits, an overview of how recruiter payments work, and much more.

  • We’ve hidden all the treasure in the Templates section. Here, you’ll find a handful of carefully-crafted templates to help you communicate with candidates and account managers. So, if you’re pressed for time or are unsure how to break the news to a candidate, simply copy and paste one of our templates (or make it your own, if you feel so inclined). Remember, the CrowdWiki is always growing, so let us know if there’s a template you want us to add.

  • Over the coming months, we’ll also be adding a video section, where you’ll have access to training videos and clips to help you refresh your recruiting skills. Stay tuned!

That’s it! We’re excited to roll this out, so we hope you’ll dig in and start exploring. Sometime within the next week, we’ll be sending all of you a survey about the CrowdWiki with questions about its usability, the existing content, your favorite articles, and anything you’d like us to include. We’d love it if you could take a few minutes to respond – it’ll help us create the best content possible for you.

Enjoy your weekend!
