5:25 PM Redefining Your Candidate Experience to Stand-Out in a Competitive Job Market

With unemployment rate well below the 70 year average, and job openings at a 17-year high, a constructive candidate experience is the first step to building an engaged workforce with high retention rates. It is paramount for talent acquisition leaders to build a positive candidate experience that effectively transitions into a positive employee experience. Each step of the hiring process, from the wording on the job description, application process, extending through the interview and job offer, should be seamless and transparent. In this session we will speak with Talent Officers who have revolutionized their candidate experience, and discuss common challenges including: 

The application process in 5 clicks or less – reducing application abandonment 

Improving communication using technology to keep candidates engaged throughout the recruiting process 

Building an on-boarding program that encourages employee retention
