Workshop D: Improving the Candidate Experience: Can You Put Yourself in Their Shoes?

with Matthew Kaiser, Vice President & Talent Strategist, NAS Recruitment Communications
As you evaluate your recruiting process, it is important to understand the factors that may ultimately influence a candidate’s decision to choose your organization over your competitor. What does the candidate want to see? What is the perception of your facility? How does your organization look… through the eyes of a candidate? We will examine this concept – a concept called the “candidate experience”. This workshop addresses the meaning behind the candidate experience, how to measure it and how to effectively improve the experience to attract, engage and retain the best talent. The program format is interactive and you will leave with ideas that can impact your organization immediately. We will examine and initiate discussion on the following:
  • Understanding the concept of the candidate experience
  • Developing tools to help measure the candidate experience
  • Examining how to effectively enhance candidate touch points throughout the recruiting process
  • Identifying creative and strategic ways to improve the overall candidate experience
