The UX for Recruitment Method trains recruiters to think like UX Researchers, positioning candidates as the end user of the recruiting process.

We provide an introduction into how to leverage behavioural science to better understand not only the corporation’s stated values but also the lived values of employees. By assessing institutional and individuals values, we can ascribe a numeric “score” that measures the cultural alignment (and misalignment) within the workplace. As a result, HR professionals gain the intelligence they need to recruit, retain and engineer a highly-engaged, top-performing workforce.
Learn how quantifying corporate culture can benefit:
* Executives: Increasing company profitability & employee performance
* Managers: Maximizing employee engagement & workgroup productivity
* Employees: Understanding cultural fit & opportunities for advancement

Last year, the World Economic Forum’s Global Gender Gap Report, best known for the annual Davos gatherings, added 47 years to the time necessary to reach workplace equality. According to the WEF, in 2017, gender parity ‘shifted into reverse” and it will take 217 YEARS for disparities in the pay and employment opportunities of men and women to end. It is the first time since 2006 that “slow but steady progress” toward parity has halted.
Join this interactive session to learn more about
- The factors that will help us close the gender pay gap
- The new opportunities available to women today

It’s impossible to retain top talent if they never make it onboard!
Over one third of employers report losing candidates because of a bad background screening process. In a competitive labor market, even the slightest hitch in the hiring process can lead to a poor candidate experience and lost hires. In contrast, well implemented background screens can improve the candidate experience, reduce risky hires, and lead to reduced turnover.
You will learn:
-Why background screening is critical to the candidate experience
-What to look for when selecting and implementing a background screening provider
-How background screening can impact your overall employer brand and improve retention rates
In a global market that can be quick to change and volatile diverse skills and ideas are needed more than ever. However when faced with over 200 applicants or more for just two roles, time constraints and efficiency needed to whittle candidates down can lead to organisations missing these hidden qualities. Changing the way we recruit can be risky, but small changes in how we attract, select and interact with potential talent can make a difference long term. In this introductory webinar, suggestions about how to do this will be made and discussed.

When recruiting people do you look for skills or potential? Talent is something that needs to be honed and continually developed and skills can always be learnt and improved. In an ever changing world organisations need people who can be flexible, continually learn and are able to take new ideas forward quickly. In short attracting people with a growth mindset and therefore learning potential will ensure your organisation is future fit. But even that’s not enough, you need to stand out against other companies as the place to work, a place where people will not only grow but be happy too.

“Great vision without great people is irrelevant.”- Jim Collins, Good to Great
Not that long ago, talent acquisition was referred to as the recruiting department – with no more responsibility than reviewing resumes, screening candidates, and organizing candidate interviews. The phrase “talent acquisition” is now mainstream and widely accepted by companies of all sizes.
Now you and your organization, your employee brand ambassadors, have a story to tell, one that draws people to your organization now, and in the future, so what’s YOUR STORY?
This presentation will identify how individual communication impacts the brand, how brands communicate and what it all means for recruiting and employer branding. This session will demonstrate how to utilize the best search engines and sourcing tools available today to find biographical information as well as lists of names of top talent on the web. We will explore a variety of search tools as well as essential techniques for leveraging social media sites to attract and locate the candidates that you need to fill your toughest requisitions.
