According to Human Resource Executive, in 2020, employers spent an average of $483 per employee on HR Technology, which was on top of what was spent recruiting each employee. But all this investment isn’t untangling the hiring knot. Why? Nearly half of new hires fail because we’re focused on untangling the hiring knot for companies rather than supporting the candidates. Matt Baxter, author of “The Hiring Knot,” and CEO at Wedge, makes the business case for focusing your recruiting efforts on the candidates, not their resumes. With more effort and energy invested in the candidates – coaching candidates, advising them, making introductions even when they didn’t work out – you’re likely to find the candidate of your dreams. In this interactive discussion, Matt and attendees will explore the demands of modern recruiting and how to transition the focus onto the candidate – not a piece of paper or a LinkedIn profile, but the natural, authentic person – to learn who they are and how great they can be in the job you’re recruiting for. If you need talent acquisition strategies that address the disruption in today’s job market, this session will help you create a competitive advantage by engaging candidates without sacrificing the highly personal nature of hiring. Untangle your hiring knot by providing a next-generation candidate experience.

Create a competitive advantage by engaging candidates without sacrificing the highly personal nature of hiring. Build a framework of effective recruiting processes for a positive, engaging, and personal experience that helps move hiring forward. Untangle your hiring knot to meet the demands of modern recruiting and engage the right candidates.
