1,292
-1

Published on

The goal of recruiting – matching the right job with the right candidate – hasn’t changed.

But the tools, technologies and tactics required to successfully attract, engage and hire top talent today can be daunting.

Go beyond the marketing buzzwords and consulting speak to take a real look at what real recruiters need to know about some of the top trends in talent acquisition and what you need to know to incorporate these into a successful recruiting strategy to take your 2014 hiring to the next level.

On this webinar, you will learn:

Which Recruiting & Talent Trends You Should Watch (Or Ignore)

It seems like every day, there’s something new recruiters have to worry about other than actually hiring candidates. First it was building a great careers site, then getting on social media, then taking recruiting mobile, then using big data – what’s next? We separate the reality from the hype and show you what you really need to know – and watch for – when recruiting top talent today.

How to Build a Recruiting Strategy for Success:

The fundamentals of recruiting haven’t changed, and chances are, neither have your core processes or systems. That’s why we’ll look at some real life tips and tricks for adding the new and emerging technologies, platforms and tools available to recruiters today to your existing recruitment and hiring initiatives to build a foundation for successfully recruiting and retaining the talent your organization needs today – and tomorrow.

Life At NPR: Getting Recruiting Right

Lars Schmidt of Amplify Talent shows how he transformed recruiting and talent acquisition at NPR, providing a behind the scenes look at a successful strategy in action. Lars will look at NPR’s approach and best practices for developing, executing, measuring and refining your recruiting initiatives. This case study from NPR will show a real company really doing it right – and how every recruiter, from big brand to boutique agency, can apply these lessons to make their jobs a little easier in the coming year.

  43. 43. Social Recruiting Funnel A Breakdown of Social Recruiting Activity by Stage Discovery You’re using social media to get the attention of candidates you might not otherwise reach. This is generally early-stage social recruiting. Branding You use your emerging social recruiting platforms to provide compelling content, interact with fans, share your culture. Employee involvement is key. Engagement Application #work4webinar You’re successfully building brand advocates internally & externally. Your content spreads and your reach is broadened. You’re consistently reaching passive candidates you wouldn’t through traditional methods. Here’s your payoff. The time you’ve invested in the prior 3 steps is paying dividends. Your social recruiting application & hire volume is measurably higher and your social channels are growing steadily.
  44. 44. Key Takeaways Have a strategy and goal before you start. What challenges are you trying to solve? What is your target outcome? Select appropriate channels. Build relationships with internal stakeholders & influencers. Activate your employees. Pilot, start small, scale - important to build internal credibility. Multi-channel branding: social media, career site, job descriptions, blogs, conferences, etc. Listen to your fans, interact with them. Remember, this is a long-term investment. #work4webinar
