Defining the Candidate Experience: From Myth to Mastery and Why it Matters
Presented by Gerry Chrispin, Founder -The TalentBoard
What would it mean if candidates and employers were “equals” when it comes to sharing information about themselves during the business process we call recruiting? Would it change how you present yourself as a desirable company to work for? Would you be compelled to tell the truth about the pay, the challenges, the previous incumbent…and more..before a prospect even considered applying? Would it make a difference in the quality of candidates that applied? This session will answer these questions and more as we explore how candidates are treated and what it means to the firms that do it well.
For the last three years, a non-profit, TalentBoard, has conducted a six month campaign each year with dozens of volunteers to get companies to describe how they treat candidates and the candidates of these companies to describe how they were treated. The results are changing the way we think about recruiting. In 2013 more than 35,000 candidates of 90 companies detailed their experiences by completing a 40 minute survey beginning from when they began researching the firm they eventually applied to until, if they were hired, they were onboarded. (Since only 15% of the candidates were hired, we know even more about the attitudes, opinions and actions they took before, during and after their application.)
