The future of recruitment for 2016 has seemingly spawned hundreds of blog posts and articles, covering everything from ATS technology, predictive analytics, candidate experience, CRM and much more. I love tech and looking for new solutions to solve recruiting problems, but sometimes I feel that companies should take a step back and think in more detail about the important thing every company craves – the talent they need for their business (or their clients). Below is video of an interview I did recently that explains in more detail what I mean, when I say that you, as recruiters, need to recruit where your candidates are active in 2016.
At the end of last year I was asked to Keynote the The Online Recruitment Conference in Budapest, Hungary. My presentation – Is Your Employer Brand Letting Your Recruitment Down – was very well received by the 400 strong audience of recruiters and HR professionals. While I was there I was interviewed on video by a journalist, who asked me my thoughts on how companies can really make the most of social recruiting. Having watched it back for the first time this week after I received the edited copy, I realised it is a good video on what we should all be focusing on for this year – the candidates themselves! It is of course a subject I have written about several times but the video here really brings together all the areas companies can improve – social, mobile, sourcing, engagement and understanding your target candidate audience.
