Breakout

In 2018, candidates want to find out what it is like to work for your organisation online, independently, before they have a conversation with a human in your recruitment team. To adapt, you should create an ongoing talent nurture programme using software which tracks and scores each candidate's interactions with your content. This will fuel your recruiters with 'hire-ready' candidates, allow them to filter the candidate database according to a real-time engagement score and show you which channels and content are driving the most candidate demand so you can constantly improve candidate engagement. This session will focus on the most important aspects of building automated talent pipelines with specific insights from Specsavers.

13:45 - 14:15
Modiara Kamps, BrandLoyalty & Icemobile
Breakout

Are you ready to rumble? Most companies will agree that their employees are their most valuable and important assets. Surprisingly enough, Talent Acquisition often isn't embedded into an organization as a strategic function but approached rather reactively. Without a clear vision and strategy behind TA, it is hard, if not impossible to ask the right questions and match the right technology for your specific hiring needs. Recruitment marketing is a key step in building a holistic TA strategy where you have the tools to target not any talent, but the right talent out there.

During this breakout session, Modiara will share her experience on how recruitment marketing is helping companies to bridge the gap between recruitment and marketing. She will share her experience, including the pitfalls you should avoid and the best practices you should embrace when implementing new TA strategies and technologies in an organization operating on a global scale. Answering questions like:

- Where to start?
- How to define objectives?
- How to get internal commitment & budget?
- How to measure success?
- How to keep it smart & simple?

Skyler Ilenstine, TalentSwot
Breakout

TalentSwot's computational linguist will be discussing how our subconscious choice of words can tell us a great deal about a person's underlying personality types. Without realising it, the words that often go unnoticed in our every day conversations can tell us whether a person is cautious or risk-taking, whether they prefer rules or ignoring them, how well they work in a team, and even whether someone is at risk of depression. Skyler will take you through how these studies are shaping the way artificial intelligence is analysing human metrics and their future in recruitment.
