Your Guide to Transforming the Candidate Experience

Because the best talent strategies start with talent acquisition

As talent shortages loom and global skilled labor markets remain competitive, the need for an engaging and personalized candidate experience has never been more important as organizations look for ways to break through the noise to attract and retain the best talent.

And hiring managers, HR leaders and recruiters alike know that the best candidate experience always keeps the prospective employee at the forefront, with a simplified, intuitive and results-oriented approach for everyone involved. Yet many organizations fall short delivering this key proficiency. In fact, Brandon Hall Group's 2018 Candidate Experience Survey shows that while 73 percent of organizations realize that candidate experience is essential, slightly less than half (48 percent) believe their practices are effective.

So how can organizations put their best foot forward with an engaging candidate experience?

Use the expert resources in this series to improve an existing talent recruitment strategy – or create and implement a new one. Improve your employer brand with enhanced candidate relationship management and smoother recruiting and onboarding processes.
