Review and Adapt Your Digital Candidate Experience

COVID-19 has changed everything. It’s drastically altered the global economy across industries and how employers recruit, hire and retain people. And as vaccines are distributed to the general public, and companies increase hiring in 2021, the pandemic also continues to impact how and where their employees work. 

According to recent research by Talent Board and the Candidate Experience (CandE) Awards, nearly 50% of companies say they’ll remain mostly virtual with some essential onsite employees (office/store/plant, etc.). That of course can and will change as the year progresses. 

No matter what the mix is, virtual work will remain a competitive differentiator for companies beyond covid, and virtualizing the recruiting and hiring process is here to stay. Many companies of hiring volumes will continue to screen, assess, interview and onboard virtually. HR and recruiting technologies are critical for companies to be competitive -- and to keep candidate and employee experiences transparent and engaging -- and this is why reviewing and adapting your digital candidate experience is so important.

During this informative session, Talent Board and the Candidate Experience (CandE) Awards president Kevin Grossman, will share insights from their candidate experience benchmark research including:

  • How employers could improve virtual communication and feedback loops throughout the recruiting and hiring process

  • How HR and recruiting technologies are empowering employers to provide a better candidate and employee experiences       

  • How candidates and employees may take their alliance, product purchases, and relationships elsewhere when they have poor experiences – and how they’ll increase it when it’s great  

  • How retaining critical employees who may have more flexible virtual opportunities elsewhere will be very difficult
