Tables have turned. The roles have revolved. For the first time in decades, candidates rather than employers have the upper hand in controlling their fate.
Those involved in recruiting new staff, whether it’s the hiring manager or the professionals working in talent acquisition and HR, are facing candidates in the driving seat: prospective hires who are able to command more negotiating power when it comes to not only salary, but the entire package.
In the era of hybrid working, your next hire may also want to dictate where they work and when.
This Personnel Today webinar, in association with RPO specialist PeopleScout, provides insights into how you can succeed in the current candidates’ market.
Editor Rob Moss is joined by deputy managing director of PeopleScout, Robert Peasnell, who shares a special market update, and an expert panel of talent acquisition professionals who will provide practical real-life advice from the resourcing front-line. See speakers below.
Attendees to this free 60-minute webinar learn about:
- The touchpoints that exist in the candidate journey – how many are you mastering?
- The importance of workplace culture and employer brand
- The impact of a candidate’s market on diversity, equality and inclusion
- The influence that the employer value proposition can have on employee experience.
Whether your organisation is currently recruiting niche hires, high volume or looking to build a friction-free resourcing model, this webinar will help you understand the challenges of the resourcing revolution.
