Creating and Sustaining an Inclusive Candidate Experience – Why DEI Strategies and Tactics Are Critical to Competitive Recruiting and Hiring Today.
Recruiting and hiring have never been more competitive. Potential job candidates want more from their jobs – more money, flexibility, development opportunities – and more belonging. This includes external and internal candidates alike. For companies that have been and are improving their diversity, equity, and inclusion strategies and tactics, this adds a layer of competitive advantage to a better candidate experience and important potential hires they may have missed otherwise.
In fact, according to our latest candidate experience benchmark research, the top recruitment marketing content for women and people of color included information about diversity & inclusion initiatives, company culture, and why people want to work there. This aligns with the recruitment marketing content employers told us this year they made more available before candidates applied: company values, diversity & inclusion, why people want to work there.
Join #TheCandEs virtually for two days of great speakers and sessions talking about Creating and Sustaining an Inclusive Candidate Experience – Why DEI Strategies and Tactics Are Critical to Competitive Recruiting and Hiring Today on June 15-16, 2022, from 11 AM ET – 3 PM ET each day.
Speakers and agenda are below! This event will be virtual and held in the Whova app (where you can attend on your computer, tablet and/or mobile). The virtual conference will be approved for 3 SHRM & HRCI credits each day as well!
