Next week I will be emceeing ERE’s annual conference in New Orleans. To say I'm excited would be an understatement because the theme for the event is something near and dear to my heart. The theme this year, “Transform Your TA Department, Transform Your Business,” speaks volumes as to the current state of talent acquisition and why I started Proactive Talent Strategies.
If you’re a recruiter or sourcer, do you often find yourself starting your day early or staying up late to coordinate interview scheduling, pull together spreadsheets and reports, or search for tools that can improve your sourcing skills? If you’re a talent acquisition leader or recruiting manager, are you looking to speed up your candidate sourcing and recruiting process while improving your quality of hire?
As a recruiting executive, you know how important it is to be able to demonstrate the value your team brings to your business. But with everything on your plate, it’s easy to put your recruiting metrics on the back burner. Or, perhaps you’re just not a math person, and so you’ve been putting it off for as long as you can. So how do you get started with your recruiting metrics?
Are you a startup or a small and medium-sized business with an unknown brand? Or even if you’re a big and established corporation, perhaps you have a misunderstood brand where the market perception is different from your actual company culture and employee experience? In both cases, trying to compete with the Googles and Facebooks of the world to attract and hire top talent may feel like an impossibly difficult task. But it doesn’t have to be.
You may have heard that virtual reality and augmented reality are the next “big thing” in technology, and how they will revolutionize the way we live, learn, work and play. And they are going to completely change how we attract, engage and recruit talent in the future as well. Here are some out-of-box ideas you can use to deliver unique, memorable experiences to your candidates and bring your employer brand to life through VR and AR.
Is your company still relying on text-based recruitment marketing in a visual world? The thing is, candidates want to know what it's really like to work at your company, and a bullet list of skills and a blanket sell statement about the company in a job description just doesn't cut it anymore. There is just no better platform than video to create that emotional attraction to a company and job opportunity -- and I'll tell you why!
In today’s competitive job market, relying on job postings as your sole recruiting strategy just won’t cut it anymore. If you want the very best talent, you need to have a multi-channel recruiting and employer brand strategy to find, nurture and convert qualified candidates to hires for your company.
