Communication is the key to a successful candidate experience. Candidates want more transparency from employers. They want to know where they are at in the process, how long before they will hear back about an interview, and what to expect from a potential employer. It is the most basic way that companies can improve recruitment efforts yet, it too often goes ignored. Aptitude Research found that companies that companies are actually getting worse in their efforts to communicate with candidates despite new strategies and tools for engaging with talent. In fact, 1 in 2 companies are relying solely on email to engage with candidates. When communication is consistent, relevant and meaningful, talent acquisition efforts improve significantly. This presentation based on data collected in 2019 will provide clarity on the following questions:
Many organizations are focused externally on customer experience to impact bottom line. But many forget that job seekers and candidates are important constituents too. Many job seekers admit to sharing bad candidate experiences online, which reflects poorly on your brand. When you delight your candidates like you do your customers, you build a larger base of advocates for your brand. In this session, Gina Papa will explain how talent acquisition executives are brand ambassadors who hold the key to candidate experience.

We don’t know how to hire for cultural fit, but we keep trying.
There are recruiting and TA leaders who use the phrase “culture fit” in a thoughtfully applied manner and create sourcing and screening practices to attract talented individuals who reflect their organization’s fundamental values. But at other companies, the hiring process is broken, and hiring managers choose from a talent pool that reflects a company’s subjectivity, biases, and blind spots.

Recruiting in an election year isn’t just about change, it’s about the stall that happens with businesses as they wait for the pending change. It has happened every election year, as many organizations slow funding of projects and choose that time to reflect on what they might have to change or brace for with election cycles. Talent Acquisition feels this pause months before the rest of the business, as we see it in changing requisition loads, time to fill and urgency for placements. Not every company has the same challenges. The only thing that is constant for everyone is the fact that there will be changes. Looking ahead to 2020 we can already feel the anxiety approaching over the election. This fear of the unknown can’t control our hunt for candidates. We must provide the best talent that benefits the company and helps the entire entity move forward toward its goals. Therefore, how do we prepare for the disruption? Come hear Elaine Orler bridge the gap and leave feeling confident walking into 2020. Expect to learn some early tips to be ready for any potential changes, how to quickly evaluate your readiness and agility to meet the change, and how to measure recruiting in a fluid year.
In order to have successful connections with candidates, you need to appeal to the personalities you are speaking to. That’s where developing candidate personas come into play.

Candidate engagement is the one thing recruiters can control and it provides a better experience for both candidates and employers too.

In today’s recruiting environment, refinement around the edges can be the difference between success and failure. Strong operational execution is still one of the most difficult things to put in place mostly if you are leading a large recruiting function. A few percentage points of increase in application flow may seem trivial unless you get over 2 million a year.
In this session Jason Pistulka, AVP of Talent Acquisition Operations at HCA Healthcare, will demonstrate some ways to utilize data to drive operational excellence in your recruiting operations to better understand:
Candidate experience begins with a great first impression. Establishing a meaningful connection from the onset can be the difference between a completed application and losing top talent to a competitor. Ensuring a solid representation of your company’s brand, vision, mission and values is key in the overall talent acquisition process. Candidates invest significant time researching an organization before they even hit apply. What are you doing to ensure what they see in the market is an accurate depiction of your organization? Additionally, proactive management and oversight of external career channels, and employer review sites such as Glassdoor and Indeed are a key component in the overall process. How do you drive positive impact of these channels in today’s digital world? Learn from Premise Health on building a brand that secures a position as an employer of choice and improves the chances of landing highly coveted and sought-after talent.

Are you a cop, assassin or a fixer in the world of recruiting? You’ve heard the buzzwords about becoming a great recruiter or talent leader: get strategic; know the business.

This session looks at the recruiting landscape and profiles the Nine Faces of Recruiting using material and concepts from Kris Dunn’s recently released book, The 9 Faces of HR.
We live in a world where data has the final say – it is our “proof to the pudding” so-to-speak. But we know the most effective way to recruit is being more human, approaching the market with empathy, and using our EQ. The question then becomes: How do we use that data effectively to not just boost our efficacy but also to identify ways to recruit with more EQ? In this animated session, Mike “Batman” Cohen will discuss three ways that we can aggregate, track, and use our data to help us analyze ways to be better sourcers, recruiters, and humans.
$1 Trillion Dollars…That’s the cost every year of voluntary turnover for U.S. businesses according to Gallup. Unemployment Companies are growing vulnerable to not only losing the war for talent, but even more alarming, losing the talent they already have. That’s why recruiting shouldn’t stop after the candidate’s first day. Your existing workforce is the lifeblood of your organization and can be one of the best sources of talent to tap when you have new openings. Employees want you to leverage their skills and expertise, and match them with learning and other types of opportunities that will allow them to move around your company. Come learn how to “go beyond” modern recruiting efforts and add current employees to your candidate pipeline, providing them with an experience that allows for career development and moves laterally and vertically through the organization – helping reduce spend on recruiting and retaining talent.
