Recruiting in the Palm of Your Hand

Date/Time:
Wednesday, March 11, 2015, 2:00 pm ET
Duration:
60 minutes

presented by Todd Raphael and Richard Stack

Screen Shot 2015-02-09 at 2.02.04 PMAs smartphone use has exploded in recent years, more and more job seekers now use mobile sites to research companies and job opportunities. As larger numbers of job seekers arrive at  our companies’ doorstep via mobile, it’s no longer an optional extra. Mobile recruiting is here to stay.

To cater to job seekers who expect to be able to browse career sites while on the go, companies must  rethink the traditional desktop website. Many organizations are now creating mobile career sites, embracing the use of responsive design to showcase information across the full range of devices, and even developing mobile apps to make the experience more user friendly. Those who don’t run the risk of making a poor impression on potential candidates who simply move on from companies that don’t make the effort to reach them.

Design and accessiblity is one thing, but what about the candidates who now expect to be able to upload applications, submit resumes or even respond online to interview questions? Will the whole recruitment and selection process become as portable as today’s banking or travel booking experiences? How is a hard-pressed recruiter to keep up?

Join our free webinar on Wednesday March 11 to get a handle on the current and future state of mobile recruiting and how you can make use of mobile technology for sourcing. 

In this webinar, hear about the latest challenges in mobile recruiting, including:

·       How the use of mobile phones is changing traditional career websites

·       When should we go mobile, and how mobile should we go?!

·       Some predictions for the near future of mobile recruiting

Who should attend?

Recruiters and HR specialists who want to learn more about mobile recruiting and how to make it work for their companies should join us on Wendesday March 11.

Employer Branding 101

Date/Time:
Wednesday, March 4, 2015, 2:00 pm ET
Duration:
60 minutes

presented by Shawn Rogers

“Employer branding” has become a familiar buzzword, and we all recognize the companies that have a strong brand in the recruitment marketplace.
So do candidates. From Glassdoor reviews to LinkedIn connections, and their own interactions with the company, candidates have plenty of opportunity to research and assess you before an application is even completed.

Companies that can communicate a compelling employer brand have an advantage in recruitment and talent retention. In a tight market, a strong employer brand can keep you top of mind and expand the pool of talent you have to draw from.

This all sounds great and you know you need to have a well-defined employer brand strategy to attract the top candidates — but where to start? If that sounds like your current position, you’re not alone. In this free webinar we get down in the weeds and look at what goes into creating and communicating an employer brand that resonates with people you want to hire.

Join our free webinar on Wednesday March 4 to get clear on employer branding, pick up some tips for how to get started, and learn some best practices in benchmarking and strategy. 

During the webinar, we’ll start from the beginning and our speaker, Shawn Rogers, will walk you through:

  • How to formulate an effective employer branding strategy
  • Who to partner with to get things done
  • Setting benchmark metrics
  • Some best practices to help get you started

Who should attend?
If you’re looking for an understanding of what an employer brand is and can do, getting started on an employer branding project, or trying to figure out ways to make an existing employer brand work harder for you, join us on Wednesday March 4.

Employee Referrals: The Highest Impact Option for 2015

Date/Time:
Wednesday, February 11, 2015, 2:00 pm ET
Duration:
60 minutes

presented by Dr. John Sullivan

When you are selecting a recruiting approach, focus on the ones with the highest impact, rather than whatever happens to be the latest fad or the traditional approaches that may no longer work.

Well, there is now plenty of research that demonstrates that focused referral programs can directly increase corporate revenue, innovation, and diversity. Referral programs also routinely produce the highest-performing hires and employees with high retention rates. From the recruiting department’s perspective, referrals can have the fastest time to fill, while still being among the cheapest hiring approaches. Their overall impact on recruiting can be significant because well-designed programs produce 50 percent of all hires. Unfortunately many corporate referral programs fail to produce these exceptional business and recruiting impacts because they were designed before the expansion of social media networks.

This interactive webinar will focus on the action steps that corporate leaders need to take in order to upgrade their programs and increase their business impact to the point where your executives become the strongest supporters of referral programs.

This webinar will be led by our own well-known ERE.net author, Dr. John Sullivan, who we consider to be the father of employee referral programs. This highly interactive webinar will cover the following important topics.

·       How to demonstrate to cynical executives the ROI and the business impacts of referral programs.

·       How to focus your referral program so that it produces the maximum business impact in critical areas like revenue, productivity, and innovation.

·       The critical success factors that must be present in order to produce the maximum impact and also the factors that degrade program results.

·       Action steps in order to improve the quality of your employee referrals.

If this sounds like information you need, join us for a free webinar on Wednesday, February 11, at 11:00 a.m. Pacific / 2 Eastern

Who Should Attend?
This webinar is designed specifically for corporate recruiting leaders and those recruiters and managers that are interested in high-performing employee referral programs.

Managing Your Managers

Date/Time:
Wednesday, February 4, 2015, 2:00 pm ET
Duration:
60 minutes

presented by Jennifer Morgan

As a recruiter or HR specialist, you know that hiring success depends on a strong partnership with your hiring managers. In your ideal world, they come to you early and often, and rely on your expertise to help guide their requirements and build a top-class team. The hiring process is thoughtful and thorough, and everybody involved is happy and engaged.

However, back in the real world, recruiters and HR specialists often find they’re expected to be mind readers and order takers. You’re invited to the process too late to really make a difference but required to pull a string of fully qualified candidates out of a hat at a moment’s notice.

Creating a more productive environment and a stronger relationship with hiring managers will help recruiters to find quality hires and improve hiring numbers. Building trust and working smarter with hiring managers is a win-win strategy.

Join us for a free webinar on Wednesday, February 4 to learn more about ways to work smarter with hiring managers and bring the real world of recruiting closer to the ideal.

During the webinar, our speaker Jennifer Morgan will discuss:

  • How to become an advisor instead of an “order taker”
  • Ways to work smarter with your managers and decrease your weekly hours in the office for real work/life balance
  • Creating a work environment that allows you to have fun working with your hiring managers every day!

Attracting Candidates With Authenticity

Date/Time:
Wednesday, January 14, 2015, 2:00 pm ET
Duration:
60 minutes

presented by Rebecca Valladares

Why do people join your company? Why do they stay? What kind of people thrive in your environment? Candidates begin to form their impressions of a business before they even walk into an interview. Employees are willing and able to share their experiences — good as well as bad — with a savvy network at the click of a button. Your recruitment and retention results are tied to how you communicate your employer brand and employee value proposition.

An authentic brand experience can help attract and retain engaged employees who align with your company’s values. On the other hand, brand and employee value propositions based on empty promises often backfire, leading to increased recruitment costs, turnover spikes, and wasted money.

Promoting an authentic employer brand can make a real difference to your recruitment efforts and it doesn’t have to be a headache.

Join our free webinar on Wednesday, January 14, to learn how to develop and communicate the kind of authentic brand experience that will attract your ideal candidates and help retain your top employees.

Our expert speaker, Rebecca Valladares, will lead you through:

·       Methods for defining your authentic employer brand and employee value position

·       Mapping your candidate or employee touch points against your brand promise

·       Creating HR policies and programs that reflect and support your brand

Rebecca will help you identify strategies to get started on improving your employer brand experience as soon as you get back to your desk.

Who should attend?

This webinar for recruiters and HR specialists who want to attract and retain more of the right candidates, reduce turnover, and build a sustainable recruitment pipeline.

Duration:
0 minutes

presented by Jody Ordioni

The idea of a discrete website solely for recruiting goes back only about 15 years, but a lot of innovation has taken place in that time. By making their own advances and following the latest technology, smart recruiters have created compelling destinations for job-seekers. Today, the difficulties in attracting key, culturally aligned talent to meet business needs, coupled with the growing expectations for a seamless candidate experience across a variety of platforms and devices, have made it abundantly clear that the career site is an important component of any successful talent acquisition strategy.  Yet more than 60 percent of respondents to a recent survey on career sites feel their current site could be better or does not meet their needs at all. 35 percent are planning a Career Site redesign within the next 12 months.

If you’re among those planning a redesign, and seek forward-looking, practical information to help you on your journey, or are just interested in keeping up on the latest predictions, best-practices, and trends, you won’t want to miss this webinar!
