Career Gift in Brussels

Nick was in Brussels recently presenting candidate experience and Career Gift at a leading HR forum. The event, hosted and organised by Pangloss International, was with specially invited and leading employers in Brussels.

PanglossWith fine food and wine being served, Nick presented on the latest thinking and research affecting Employer Branding and Candidate Experience. His presentation focused on:

  • How hiring is evolving – the two-way relationship between recruiters and candidates and its impact on the employer brand
  • The feedback society – the implications of sites such as Glassdoor and social media
  • Values are you brand – why recruitment processes and behaviours need to reflect brand values and EVP
  • The context of candidate experience with the ‘millennial’ workforce
  • The role CareerGift plays in candidate experience and brand reputation

Discussion over lunch highlighted the differences in speed of uptake and importance placed on employer branding. Glassdoor, for example, is slowly making an impact. Linkedin also has a slower adoption rate as part of an integrated strategy.

What everyone recognised was that the treatment of job applicants and rejected candidates needs to be better.
