Is talent running for the hills (or to your competitors)? Or, are they lining up at your front door? When they do arrive, are you doing your best to welcome them and show them around? Talent Acquisition professionals have an opportunity to build better candidate engagement practices resulting in improved key performance metrics, including more successful applicants and quality new hires.
When was the last time you walked in your candidate’s shoes? What crazy hoops are being asked of them when they apply, complete assessments, interview, etc? Remember, they don’t even know if they’re even interested in the job yet! Are you leveraging social media and SMS/text to immediately engage the job seeker while differentiating your company? Are you utilizing a proactive recruitment marketing strategy? Do candidates have one-click apply (please tell me it’s less than 5 minutes)? We want better things for you and your candidates…
