Post-Social Recruiting: How to Recruit Passive, High -Caliber Talent

2014 Talent Management Conference
Workplace Application: Learn how to leverage the social power of your website to recruit passive, high-caliber talent.

Passive, high-caliber talent want you to build relationships that are both enduring and supportive of their sustained success. Post-social recruiting forges such relationships by moving your social interactions with candidates to a new destination on your own site – a “careerstead” or homestead for workers' careers. You will learn how the current structure of commercial social media sites diminishes the candidate experience and therefore your organization's ability to recruit passive, high caliber talent. Discover how you can refine your employment brand and construct a pipeline of engaged employment prospects by creating a second “corporate career area” on your website to address these two needs. Weddle will also show you how this homestead for workers' careers can be used to cut time and cost to fill and improve candidate quality for current openings and to enhance both the retention and performance of new hires in the future.
