Jobvite Webinar: The Seven Deadly Sins of Recruiting
Recorded Date: September 04, 2013

Once upon a time, finding candidates meant posting a job description…and then waiting. But today’s generation of jobseekers is different. Research shows that Generation Y workers will change jobs every 3-4 years—because they want more from employment than paychecks and benefits. In addition, today’s recruiting environment is changing. New tools and technology are opening doors when it comes to sourcing, candidate relationship management, and referrals. But here’s the kicker: When candidates change, and the recruiting environment changes, your job as a recruiter will change, too. Now is the perfect time to rethink your perspective—and correct your bad behaviors. Listen to Jobvite's Sr. Director of Marketing, Matt Singer as he discusses seven of the top offenses recruiters make today and see if you are guilty of any of these “sins”.

The Surprising Disconnects Between Corporate Recruiting and Candidate Behaviors
Recorded Date: August 14, 2013
Recorded Date: August 14, 2013

Today’s unemployment numbers should make this a recruiters’ market, but the truth is that the many knowledge workers are currently employed and extremely passive and risk-averse when it comes to making a job change. As a company in need of experienced and proven talent, you can’t afford to use old-school recruiting techniques to connect with today’s top candidates. You need to understand how candidates are—and aren’t—investigating career options, and the steps that can help you uncover and recruit stellar talent. This presentation draws from The Novo Group’s Benchmark Survey of candidates and companies from across the country. It’s an insightful, practical analysis of both market factors and internal recruiting techniques and processes that might be hampering the effectiveness of your recruiting efforts, plus critical changes that can improve your recruiting success.

Hiring great employees is one of the most important, yet most difficult, tasks all business owners and hiring managers face.

•    Hiring tools that save hours of your time

•    How to get applicants to tell you the truth – and nothing but the truth

•    The questions you cannot ask and how to get the information you need anyway

•    If you could ask only one interview question, what it should be and why

•    The importance of reference checks and how to get an applicant’s references to tell you everything you need to know

Will Flexibility “Recruit and Retain”? It All Depends
Recorded Date: July 11, 2013
Recorded Date: July 11, 2013

Unemployment is falling. Turnover is rising. Tighter labor markets and unfilled positions are coming back. And recruitment and retention are moving up the urgency list. As companies search their toolkit for proven ways to get and keep the best and brightest, flexibility is at the top of their list. Surely it will perform as claimed.

Or will it? This webinar will challenge the myths of flexibility and demonstrate:

    that the retention effect of flexible schedules is not so “sticky” as many believe
    that the recruiting potential is far less than commonly claimed, and
    that employers can change their practices to strengthen flexibility’s impact

You will leave this session with a clear understanding of the gap between myth and reality and a strategy to close it.
