Kittyhawk Upstairs 16 Phillip Lane Sydney, NSW 2000

Events are FREE but places are limited and are EXCLUSIVE to in-house recruitment, resourcing & HR professionals.



Candidate Engagement

Candidate expectations have changed. Their attention is being pulled in many directions and they not always impressed by just the employer brand. They expect their interaction to be high touch, fair and transparent.

TalentBoard who run the Cande Awards research says:

· 60% of candidates will share their negative experiences with others, thereby influencing other people’s perceptions and decisions.

· Candidates with an overall poor experience are less likely to refer others to work for your organisation.

· 46% of candidates with a poor experience say they will “sever the business relationship.”

· 74% who believe they had a ‘great’ overall 5-star candidate experience say they will increase their business relationship.

If you are in a talent short space or an organisation that relies on consumers to make money imagine the impact this can have on your bottom line.

Can you afford to ignore the bottom line?
