8:20 am - 8:50 am Putting Continuous Candidate Engagement at The Center of Your Recruiting Strategy

In our ultra-low unemployment times, candidates know they have the upper hand. They expect to be engaged at every step of the hiring process. But few companies’ recruiting and hiring processes are currently set up for this level of engagement with potential hires. Forward-thinking talent executives are implementing strategies to boost the speed, quality and effectiveness of their candidate engagement. They are creating candidate journeys which engage candidates at multiple stages, using different forms of communication across a variety of platforms to reach both active and passive candidates. In this session, learn the strategic mindset behind this new form of candidate engagement. 

  • What does it mean to engage a candidate on a personal level?
  • The difference between looking for the best talent available or the best talent period
  • How to mix tech solutions, social media strategies and human contact to connect with a new generation of potential hires

Future of Talent Acquisition

8:55 am - 9:25 am The Art of Interviewing — How Top Recruiters Evaluate Candidates
With one in five hiring managers admitting that a member of their current team is a bad hire, it is clear that interviewing and assessing candidates is a skill that must be mastered and refined.  From unstructured and behavioral interviews to real-time skills assessments, recruiting interviewers have an array of options to survey a candidate’s potential. But in a limited time-frame, how do you test a candidate without overstressing them? How do you best involve multiple colleagues in the interview without creating an overly drawn-out process? In this panel, learn some of the best practices.

  • How to lower your candidates’ stress levels by previewing the overall interview process
  • Develop realistic behavioral and situational questions that are applicable to the role
  • Sell your business culture and req while still fairly assessing the candidate’s 

Talent Strategies

8:55 am - 9:25 am Discovering Your Company’s Invisible Teams — The Promise of Organizational Network Analysis
Most companies continue to set goals at the individual employee level rather than as teams, where most projects are actually planned and executed. With the advent of powerful apps that can analyze company networks of email, connections and work plans, firms are now able to understand the informal networks and team structures that actually drive the completion of projects. It’s an emergent technology and talent management practice, with a recent survey indicating that only eight percent of businesses make use of this new capability. But the practice will soon become dominant as 48 percent of large-cap companies say they are currently experimenting with tools for performing organizational analysis.    

  • Learn how email analysis can reveal collaborative teams not readily apparent to managers
  • Discover software apps that uncover a company’s most and least productive networks
  • Find expertise generated in one team that isn’t shared with others; eliminate duplicate work
