Ever wondered what an ideal candidate experience looks like?
Candidates today shop for a job like they shop for a bike – based on brand, buzz and blogs.

Tune into this 3:52 video to experience Recruitment is Marketing through the eyes of a candidate.
The rise of social media, coupled with the desire to build more engaged and productive workforces, has brought “active employee listening” to the forefront of management attention. No longer is it enough to encourage employees to speak up about topics that matter to them. Organizations today need to more actively solicit, analyze and engage in ongoing conversations with past, present and even future employees. Having access to the collective “employee voice” can help leaders achieve diverse goals, including identifying innovations, preventing discord and improving productivity, as well as building a better connection to the organization and its mission. So, how can organizations establish and manage mutually beneficial listening programs?
Smart organizations are consistently looking for ways to determine just how effective and capable candidates can be in the workplace. Sure, these candidates have said they can solve this algorithm or resolve that customer problem, but how do they stack up with internal success standards? That's why pre-hire assessments are valuable - they provide extensive insights into candidates' skill sets, pain points, ideal working environments, and more. Such information can then be used to make more informed hiring decisions that can be a game changer for the future success of any company.
Whether it's through using pre- or post-hire assessments, applying managerial feedback or learning results, identifying high potentials is a huge win for determining who will lead your company forward. With such information, businesses can ensure that their most valued employees are promoted, challenged, and encouraged to succeed - and that they stay with your business. Without this data, companies risk losing the talent that keeps them competitive and successful.
Using the high-potential employees subset of our global WorkTrends™ survey data, we were able to compare top talent, who significantly outperform their peers and demonstrate a stronger capacity to succeed, with other employees. The results provide new insight into mobile recruiting and guidance for organizations looking to attract top talent.
A successful business case is one that enables your organisation’s business leaders to make the right decisionabout a Talent Analytics investment. In this report we highlight the key aspects you need to think about as you create your own business case for Talent Analytics, starting with getting a clear handle on why it is a worthwhile investment for your organisation, but also addressing considerations such as budget and resourcing concerns, how you can measure the success of your initiative and demonstrate ROI, and the major risks you need to bear in mind over the lifetime of the initiative.
Analytics has permeated, virtually, every department within an organization. It’s no longer a ‘nice to have’. It’s an organizational imperative. HR, specifically, collects a wealth of data; from recruiting applications, employee surveys, performance management data and it sits in systems that remain largely untapped. This data can help drive strategic decisions about your workforce. Analytic tools have, historically, been difficult to use and required heavy IT lifting in order to get the most out of them. What if an analytics system learned and continue to learn as it experienced new information, new scenarios, and new responses. This is referred to as Cognitive Computing and is key to providing an analytics system that is easy to use but extremely powerful.

Predictive maintenance (PdM), a software technology, is becoming more popular and mainstream for organisations because it helps maximise asset productivity and process efficiency by gaining insight from your data.
Today’s increasingly competitive global economy requires businesses to make decisions faster than ever. Businesses need instant insight into the status of their people and processes. But manual, paper-based processes undermine decision-making. Paper makes it difficult for businesses to make smart decisions about their operations and their working capital. Manual processes also are costly and inefficient, create headaches for front-line staff, introduce compliance and security risks, and stymie collaboration with trading partners.
In a world of increasingly complex financial models, ever-more confusing regulatory demands, and a multi-generational, highly mobile workforce, the future of human capital management (HCM) is wide open.
Does all this talk about analytics have your head spinning? Are you having trouble figuring out where to start first? In this webcast, IBM Senior Workforce Science Consultants will discuss how assessments supported by analytics can help reduce cost per applicant and ultimately improve retention. The consultants will share client stories and best practices that show how you can be successful quickly and easily using IBM Kenexa Assessments.
Analyst Zach Lahey from Aberdeen group will share research insights in this webinar and will explore how to evaluate your internal and external talent acquisition processes to determine what’s working and what’s not. In addition, we will delve into the technologies that are available to make talent acquisition more effective than ever.
After attending this webinar, you will be able to answer these three questions about your current process:
What is your recruiter’s experience like? What are their trials, tribulations, and daily interactions?
What is your candidate’s experience like? Where do they struggle, how much effort does it take for them to find information and apply for jobs?
Finally, if either one (or both) doesn’t meet your expectations, what are you going to do about it and when?
Companies are always looking for ways to determine just how effective and capable candidates can be in the workplace before they start. On paper, candidates have indicated that they can code in Python and Java or can resolve any customer service problem, but how do their skill sets compare with internal success standards, let alone everyday coding or service expectations? That’s where pre-hire assessments can be so valuable. They provide extensive insights into candidates’ skill sets, strengths, struggles, ideal working environments, and more. Top companies understand just how worthwhile such a resource is for making informed hiring decisions. In fact, Best-in-Class organizations are 45% more likely than All Others to use pre-hire assessments as part of the hiring process. Greater insights about candidates can be a game changer for the future success of any company.
While there isn’t a one-size-fits-all pre-hire assessment approach to fit in with every company’s talent acquisition pr

And with 36 million people assessed annually, we know what great leaders look like!

Attracting today’s savvy candidate requires much more than a creative job description and a flattering email message. The transparency provided by web sites such as Glassdoor combined with a millennial desire for meaningful work and corporate responsibility have the upped the ante when it comes to employer brand and candidate experience. While many firms have good intentions when it comes to employer brand, these intentions aren’t always translated to action, leaving many candidates feeling frustrated as they move through the process. New hires need confirmation that everything they were told in the interview processes is not only accurate, but even better than expected. When the onboarding process falls short of those expectations, candidates immediately question their decision to accept the offer and retention efforts in jeopardy. Join this webcast to learn how to avoid costly new-hire attrition in your organization.
A recent Human Capital Institute report found that 69% of respondents are having difficulty filling critical positions and only 20% agree that they have a strong talent pipeline for critical roles. Competition is fierce and the power has clearly shifted from employers to the candidate. Today’s job candidates expect to be treated like consumers, and the most successful marketing teams know that consumers are increasingly suspicious of brands. These marketing teams implement strategies to foster trust and loyalty among their target audience.
Just like marketers, recruiters must have the ability to not only attract but engage candidates as well, and they are tasked with fostering that same trust and loyalty among the candidates they hire as well as the ones they don’t. It’s not enough to just leverage the latest tools and implement trend-setting processes in the recruiting department. Recruiters must also live the employer brand every day.
Living the brand encompasses demonstrating the EV
