Breaking Out of the Box: Engaging Your Pipeline Candidates Through Learning

Organizations today spend significant money on recruiting, hiring and training talent that might not be the right fit for their business. Consider the possibilities of launching a targeted online learning journey that gives you the opportunity to educate potential candidates about your organization’s culture and values, assess candidates’ current skills and their knowledge gaps — all before day one. Establish a focused program that engages potential candidates, and launch it within the broader marketplace to extend your reach outside the current, captive audience within your organization.

During this workshop, attendees will:

Identify methods to engage potential candidates that are a good fit for your organization.
Focus your hiring efforts on those candidates that already possess key traits, skills and knowledge that will set the stage for future success.
Assess how you might leverage pre-boarding to create a more focused individualized approach to onboarding.
