From Pre-hire to Post-hire:  Where Is Your Weakest Link? (Mark Landwer)
Your candidate experience is only as good as the weakest link in your process. Do you treat your candidates like potential future employees throughout the recruitment process? One trend we’re seeing in the recruitment space is the morphing of the candidate and employee experience into more of an overall company experience. In this session, you will learn how this new-school approach can set expectations for future employees and optimize your candidate experience so you can make the best hires now and in the future. By effectively utilizing the recruitment, screening and human capital management tools you have at your fingertips, learn how to make holistic improvements from recruitment to background screening and onboarding.

Key learning objectives:

  1. Understand which stages of the job search and hiring process are more frustrating for candidates, and learn how to identify the weakest links from pre-hire to post-hire.
  2. Discover the preferred communication methods for both employers and candidates in each step of the hiring process.
  3. Uncover candidate perceptions and attitudes that can inform your future strategy.
