Talent Acquisition Manager - on site at AGL, Harrier Talent Solutions

AGL’s No Trade-off Automated Recruitment Process

In the current job market, there are more open jobs than available workers. The imbalance creates a decisively candidate-driven market, so much so that hiring managers and recruiters are getting “ghosted” with growing frequency.

For Talent Acquisition team, the challenge is to provide a truly differentiating experience for candidates. No one is debating that point. As a 2018 Montage survey of global Talent Acquisition leaders found, 99 percent of respondents rated the candidate experience as a top priority. Yet, far fewer have a successful strategy for delivering the modern hiring experience today’s candidates prefer.

In this panel discussion facilitated by Grant, come hear how Eldon, Phillip Barker and the AGL team are thriving in a market that demands employers be fast, transparent, and easy for the candidate to navigate through an approach that doesn’t compromise quality and speed.
