Innovation: Technology Isn’t Enough Anymore

If 2020 was about unprecedented challenges and hiring turned upside down, 2021 is about reinvention and transformation. Post-pandemic, technology is now an expected part of the hiring process, meaning that being truly innovative in how your hire is about much more than what you use. As we all prepare for what our new normal is going to actually be, organisations need to consider how they’ll differentiate themselves, provide an outstanding candidate experience and drive better hiring decisions.

In this presentation, Eric Sydell, EVP of Innovation for Modern Hire will outline the biggest trends and insights hiring teams should embrace this year. He’ll be joined by Rosa Misitano, Campaign & Bulk Recruitment Specialist for APA Group to discuss how they transformed and streamlined their graduate recruitment, and how they are looking to drive change moving forward.
