The Candidate Experience: Creating a Better Experience for Job Applicants
Date: August 25, 2015
Time: 2:30 p.m. ET
As the economy continues to improve and voluntary turnover inevitably increases, the way most employers find employees—and, more importantly, the way many employees find employers—has changed to reflect the transparent world we live in, resulting in a more candidate-driven labor market. Employers of all sizes are responding by assessing their employment brands and, in many cases, embarking on a journey to reinvent themselves and strengthen their ability to attract and retain top talent. But why is it so hard for some employers to keep potential candidates interested, on their “hook,” so to speak?
While there are no simple answers, many employers have begun focusing heavily on fostering better candidate experiences. From early talent attraction through the completion of onboarding activities, employers should consider the needs and desires of the talent they seek, especially those organizations whose candidates are also potential consumers. During this webinar, Robin Erickson will examine the potential value of the candidate experience as it relates to your organization’s total talent strategy and explore ways that organizations can drive programmatic efficiency throughout the entire process.
Topics covered will include:
• Components of an effective candidate experience strategy;
• Ways to differentiate your approach to engaging various candidate audiences;
• Opportunities to leverage business leaders for each step of the candidate journey; and
• Lessons from the front line of organizations that are optimizing efforts.
