Hiring people into your organisation today, despite the incredible technologies at our disposal, hasn’t become an easier proposition. If anything, it’s more complex.
And a big part of this complexity is, surprisingly, the fact that the vast majority of organisations haven’t upped their talent attraction game with strategic, authentic, engaging strategies. Most are still wading in a pool of high-competition, low-quality candidates, recruiters and jobboards, remaining supremely frustrated with the outcomes of their time and resource investment.
Accessing the right talent for your organisation can no longer be approached on a pot-luck basis. Or with lazy, old-school tactics.
Dr Mike Haywood, Founder and Growth Director at LiveHire, is a technology start-up veteran, and with LiveHire, is focused on delivering technology solutions that offer a more humanised, connected world so that the process of finding talent will add value to the organisation.
Ultimately, we all want to feel like we belong, and that we have an important purpose. No one wants to feel like a ‘number’, or a nameless candidate. Right? This is where Dr Mike Haywood had delegates at the #EWS enthralled: let technology like artificial intelligence, take on the processing elements of talent sourcing, and let the people in your team, be the frontline for talent in the market.
This approach will not only provide a great candidate experience…. It will also add enormous equity to your employer brand.
Here’s a look at what else Dr Haywood had to say at this year’s #EWS…
