Session #1: Why Do Candidates Still Think We Suck?

Candidates think we suck because no matter how hard we try, we still have the perception that we are a black hole! Tim will show us some ways to break this perception!

Session #2:The Goldilocks Effect: Getting Your Candidate Experience “Just Right”

With continued pressure to deliver a consumer-grade candidate experience, organizations are turning to technology for nearly every part of their recruitment process. But do candidates really want just a good old-fashioned human connection? Kristen will explore where technology makes the most sense and where the human touch is irreplaceable.

VP of Talent & Culture at The Bozzuto Group

Session #3: The Candidate Perception Gap Around Pay Parity

Gender Equality best practices go well beyond salary but, making sure you treat salary conversation fairly during interviews is important and has a growing impact on your candidates’ experience. Dat is showing that simply asking a candidate their salary ‘expectations’ is a workaround that doesn’t improve their perception that your approach is fair to women. What we learned from 23,000 responses to Question #35 of the CandE’s survey might surprise you.

Session #5: How Dent Wizard Won a CandE Award and Why That Doesn’t Matter

There is a perception that candidate will think what they want to think and CX data will not be predictive. However, when you first look at you CX data, one of the first things you’ll learn is that job seekers are stunned that anyone cares about what they think. Your candidate satisfaction scores will increase pretty much immediately just because you asked.

Director of Talent Acquisition and Talent Strategy at Dent Wizard International
