Don’t just hire great people… turn them into your best recruiters and salespeople! When making decisions, both candidates and consumers are influenced in similar ways by branding, referrals, references, and reviews - and the journey continues on long past being hired or converting. The Talent Attraction Lifecycle combines employer branding with the recruiting process to create a continuous loop of promotion enabling your employees to become your best recruiters - and ultimately your best brand advocates. This session will show you how to use every stage of the candidate lifecycle to attract talent and tell your people story, from careers webpages to culture-infused job descriptions, from employee referral campaigns to reputation management strategies, from onboarding to thought leadership. When you harness the power of the Talent Attraction Lifecycle, your business not only attracts the candidates you’re looking for, but also the customers who want to work with them. In any knowledge-based or service-oriented business, your employer brand IS your brand, and companies that understand this will win the war for talent AND customers.
