MATAWAN, N.J., Aug. 1, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- iCIMS, Inc., a leading provider of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) talent acquisition software solutions for growing businesses, and Sharlyn Lauby, President of ITM Group Inc. and author of the HR Bartender blog, present Taking Your Company's Candidate Experience to the Next Level. This program is the second event in a three-part webcast series, Winning the War for Talent, which kicked off this June. The complimentary webcast will take place on Wednesday, August 6th and will offer Human Resource Certification Institute (HRCI) credit towards Professional in Human Resources (PHR), Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR), and Global Professional in Human Resources (GPHR) certifications.
"Due to the strengthening economy, job seekers are in a better position to look for new jobs – and have more power in the recruitment process – than in years past," said iCIMS Chief Marketing Officer, Susan Vitale. "According to research conducted through iCIMS Hire Expectations Institute™, 78% of candidates say the look and feel of a company's career site is 'moderately' to 'highly important' in their decision to apply, and almost a third of candidate employment applications are made via mobile devices. These statistics have inspired iCIMS to make the candidate experience a focus in 2014, as we think it is a major factor in talent acquisition strategy today."
The program will discuss how today's job seekers are researching companies before applying to jobs, both on employers' corporate websites and other third-party sites and resources. The webcast will also discuss:
- The importance of delivering a positive candidate experience
- Best practices for creating a candidate experience strategy
- Strategies for successful talent acquisition
"One in four people say they have had a bad experience when applying for a job – that's a staggering number. A bad candidate experience can turn off qualified talent, but the impact can be even more serious," said Lauby. "A recent study by Harris Interactive found that a bad candidate experience can also result in candidates never seeking employment from those organizations again, telling others not to work at the company, and even telling others not to purchase products and services from the company. This webcast will help companies avoid this pitfall by implementing the best strategies for a great candidate experience."
