Focus in on the Candidate Journey: A Personal Perspective

Presented by

Christy O’Hara, Senior HR Specialist, HRworks Ltd.

About this talk

There has been a lot written and researched in the area of the Candidate Experience. However, this presentation will focus on my long experience in this area and lessons learned. It will outline the very practical steps which a Company can take in enhancing and innovating the Candidate Experience and where many employers fall down in providing a high level of satisfaction for candidates. Whilst Artificial Intelligence (AI) has and continues to dramatically impact many areas of the HR and the Recruitment operation and which I strongly support, I will argue strongly that there are certain basic essentials that must be resolved including human interaction in order to continue to provide a high quality personal experience for the candidate. These include the following areas: - Company Branding - Job Search - Application Process and Tracking System - Linkages with the Company - Job Specification - Selection Process - Feedback - Induction About the speaker: Christy O'Hara has worked for over 20 years in the HR and Talent Acquisition sector.
