Candidate Experience

Create an experience that engages your potential new hires throughout the selection process

Your perfect candidate could be located in any number of talent pools — passive candidates, active job seekers, or even entrepreneurs. Your recruiting strategy has to have a sourcing plan to gather candidates with the skills and experience you need, as well as engage them through the entire selection process. A sub-par candidate experience can deter applicants from accepting positions and even damage your reputation as an employer of choice. Learn how to design and implement an experience that engages the emotional, physical, and cognitive aspects of your potential new hires.

July 19, 2013 | Tim Gardner PhD | HCI

Let me suggest a small but effective ploy for stirring up trouble among a group of talent management professionals.  When discussing branding in the human capital space, ask which terms are most appropriate: (a) Employer brand/ing or (b) Employment brand/ing?  A quick search of both sets of terms at Google.com shows a respectable 296,000 hits for the terms employment brand/ing but a whopping 2.7 million hits for the terms employer brand/ing.  Despite a near internet consensus of using the employer branding term, I’d like to suggest that talent professionals have it all wrong – the proper term is employment branding.  And the difference is critical.

Henry Chesbrough is generally credited with coining the term open innovation from his book Open Innovation:  The New Imperative for Creating and Profiting from Technology.  Open innovation differed from the previous method of closed innovation where individual firms manage their own in-house R&D departments.  Open innovation seeks to use the results of the market at large finding new purposes and more effective applications of current technologies creating both spin ons and spin offs.

July 2, 2013 | Daniel Fogel | HCI

July 1, 2013 witnessed the end of Google’s popular Google Reader RSS feed. Google says it cancelled its service due to declining usage and a need to focus on other products, creating a vacuum of competitors looking to fill the void like Feedly, Digg Reader, or apps like Flipboard.
