About This Session
Today’s workforce wields amazing influence.
Social media and employer review sites give employees and candidates alike the power to shape brand sentiment in real-time. But as the labor market grows more competitive, and with a global talent shortage looming, one key area becomes increasingly crucial in the fight for top talent—the candidate experience.
What do candidates really expect from their experience? And how do you exceed the expectations of all applicants—especially the majority you don't hire—so they are convinced to reapply tomorrow?
Join Irma Long, VP of Talent Acquisition, Follett Corporation, and Mira Greenland, VP, CareerArc, as they dismantle the complexity of candidate experience design and redefine what makes the modern applicant journey complete. Discover the no. 1 pain point candidates experience today as revealed by a national survey of 1,200 respondents, and learn how Follett attempts to cure this and other key problems head-on with new tools and techniques.
Discover the keys to effectively enhancing your candidate experience and benefit from compounding returns to your talent strategy and brand.
