The way we’ve learnt to recruit is perfectly suited to a world that no longer exists

In a world where candidates act like consumers and we are all digital natives, how can talent acquisition embrace a new way of working?

Recruiters face abundant resumes through one-click apply, yet are required to provide a curated and personalised experience to candidates who often enter the recruitment process with little preparation.

Much like a customer!

These digital candidates are reactive and unsure decision makers, and as a result, drop out rates during the process are significantly climbing, along with time to hire and cost for recruitment teams.

Today’s recruitment processes are designed for an analogue world and are struggling to cope with each candidate’s poorly defined decision journey.

We will discuss the importance of Candidate Experience, Employer Brand, AI, as well as the Talent Community and Talent Pooling approaches, which mirror some of the best customer engagement approaches, to reverse this trend.
