HRO Today: 5 steps to creating memorable candidate and employee experiences.

June 19, 2018 Jennifer Klimas

The ability to attract, hire and retain quality talent is a top priority for HR leaders around the world. Competition is greater than ever before, especially for workers with hard-to-find skill sets. Companies with the ability to create memorable talent experiences will be better positioned now and in the future.

So what does it take to create a memorable talent experience? The first step is delivering a positive candidate experience throughout all steps of the recruiting and hiring process. Global research from Randstad Sourceright shows that 92% of C-suite and human capital leaders agree that a positive candidate experience is essential, and 75% plan to make improvements in support of hiring goals.

Second is the ability to design an employee experience that values feedback, encourages openness and provides a sense of purpose – all within a supportive and inclusive setting. Employees who are fully engaged in the workplace and feel that their contributions matter have a much higher likelihood of staying with their company.
