In Aberdeen's recent "An Asset for HR in the Age of the Candidate," we learned that there isn't a one-size-fits-all, pre-hire assessment approach to fit in with every company's talent acquisition process. However, there are universal steps that can be taken to optimize its usage to be as fruitful as possible.
Your recruiting strategy should be an integrated partnership
between strategy and tools. There is no secret sauce. However,
if you broaden your approach and your definition of recruiting,
attraction and connection, the goal of finding the right talent
becomes increasingly attainable. Try creating a multi-faceted
approach to talent attraction using target audiences and ads.
Create a robust strategy to connect with talent in your lead
management tool, social network, and career site or
recruitment technology system. Be willing to change and try
new tactics, even if it means starting small. There are countless
ways to approach a truly social strategy for recruitment Ė when
done right; they yield great results that can actually prove ROI.
Embrace that recruiting is marketing and change how your team finds, attracts and connects with the next great employee
for your company.
Companies are always looking for ways to determine just how effective and capable candidates can be in the workplace before they start. On paper, candidates have indicated that they can code in Python and Java or can resolve any customer service problem, but how do their skill sets compare with internal success standards, let alone everyday coding or service expectations? Thatís where pre-hire assessments can be so valuable. They provide extensive insights into candidatesí skill sets, strengths, struggles, ideal working environments, and more. Top companies understand just how worthwhile such a resource is for making informed hiring decisions. In fact, Best-in-Class organizations are 45% more likely than All Others to use pre-hire assessments as part of the hiring process. Greater insights about candidates can be a game changer for the future success of any company.

Smart organizations are consistently looking for ways to determine just how effective and capable candidates can be in the workplace. Sure, these candidates have said they can solve this algorithm or resolve that customer problem, but how do they stack up with internal success standards? That's why pre-hire assessments are valuable - they provide extensive insights into candidates' skill sets, pain points, ideal working environments, and more. Such information can then be used to make more informed hiring decisions that can be a game changer for the future success of any company.
Whether it's through using pre- or post-hire assessments, applying managerial feedback or learning results, identifying high potentials is a huge win for determining who will lead your company forward. With such information, businesses can ensure that their most valued employees are promoted, challenged, and encouraged to succeed - and that they stay with your business. Without this data, companies risk losing the talent that keeps them competitive and successful.
Attracting todayís savvy candidate requires much more than a creative job description and a flattering email message. The transparency provided by web sites such as Glassdoor combined with a millennial desire for meaningful work and corporate responsibility have the upped the ante when it comes to employer brand and candidate experience. While many firms have good intentions when it comes to employer brand, these intentions arenít always translated to action, leaving many candidates feeling frustrated as they move through the process. New hires need confirmation that everything they were told in the interview processes is not only accurate, but even better than expected. When the onboarding process falls short of those expectations, candidates immediately question their decision to accept the offer and retention efforts in jeopardy. Join this webcast to learn how to avoid costly new-hire attrition in your organization.
A recent Human Capital Institute report found that 69% of respondents are having difficulty filling critical positions and only 20% agree that they have a strong talent pipeline for critical roles. Competition is fierce and the power has clearly shifted from employers to the candidate. Todayís job candidates expect to be treated like consumers, and the most successful marketing teams know that consumers are increasingly suspicious of brands. These marketing teams implement strategies to foster trust and loyalty among their target audience.
Just like marketers, recruiters must have the ability to not only attract but engage candidates as well, and they are tasked with fostering that same trust and loyalty among the candidates they hire as well as the ones they donít. Itís not enough to just leverage the latest tools and implement trend-setting processes in the recruiting department. Recruiters must also live the employer brand every day.
Living the brand encompasses demonstrating the EV
Analyst Zach Lahey from Aberdeen group will share research insights in this webinar and will explore how to evaluate your internal and external talent acquisition processes to determine whatís working and whatís not. In addition, we will delve into the technologies that are available to make talent acquisition more effective than ever.
After attending this webinar, you will be able to answer these three questions about your current process:
What is your recruiterís experience like? What are their trials, tribulations, and daily interactions?
What is your candidateís experience like? Where do they struggle, how much effort does it take for them to find information and apply for jobs?
Finally, if either one (or both) doesnít meet your expectations, what are you going to do about it and when?
Nowadays, organizations need top-notch technologies to attract top talent, support their recruiters, and empower their organizations to grow. Thankfully, data analytics, open talent acquisition suites, talent communities, mobile optimization, and more are readily available and can enhance experiences for both candidates and recruiters while providing insight on HR for business leaders. But refreshing talent acquisition isn't just about technology; it's also about realigning its definition to the demands and expectations of the twenty-first century.
To succeed today, organizations need to take advantage of
information technology in every area of their business. Talent
acquisition is no exception. Robust, reliable technology can
help recruiters more effectively engage with candidates.
According to Aberdeen Group, the user experience is key.
It is more important than ever to have friendly and interactive
platforms. In terms of talent acquisition, companies that
prioritize the candidate experience are more than twice as
likely to improve their cost per hire on a yearĖby-year basis.1
In addition, social capabilities can enable recruiting
professionals to use the Internet for job applications, social
referrals and video interviewing. Mobile integration also
enables users to connect with information where and when
they need it.
With better tools and insight into people and data,
organizations can much more quickly identify talent,
match capabilities to market needs, retain the best talent
and improve recruiting outcomes.

Big data. We've heard the phrase for quite some time, but how can human resource leaders get into the action? One way is through the development and implementation of talent analytics strategies. Talent analytics is fundamentally changing the way organizations and practitioners are thinking about the role of HR and organizations uncovering never before seen insights.
Analytics has permeated, virtually, every department within an organization. Itís no longer a Ďnice to haveí. Itís an organizational imperative. HR, specifically, collects a wealth of data; from recruiting applications, employee surveys, performance management data and it sits in systems that remain largely untapped. This data can help drive strategic decisions about your workforce. Analytic tools have, historically, been difficult to use and required heavy IT lifting in order to get the most out of them. What if an analytics system learned and continue to learn as it experienced new information, new scenarios, and new responses. This is referred to as Cognitive Computing and is key to providing an analytics system that is easy to use but extremely powerful.
