The need for HR professionals & recruiters (and all employees) to become active ambassadors in talent attraction initiatives is critical for all organizations to compete in this competitive talent landscape. The actions are straightforward and require a keen sense of the company's culture, attractive options, opportunities, and the employee value proposition. This approach is simple, effective yet not always obvious to company talent leaders. An "If you build it, they will come" magnetic approach to acquiring the best and top talent in the market.
In this presentation, Teela will share the essential and low-cost steps to equip employees to build their professional and personal brands that add value, increase visibility of the company's employer brand and contribute to the positioning of an organization in the war for talent. This approach humanizes the talent attraction process in a sea of black holes, systems generated emails and prescriptive interface with candidates.
