About the Event

Join us on Thursday 25th February 2021 for our TALiNT In-House Leaders event – The Candidate Journey: Matching the candidate experience with your employer brand event. 

A strong employer brand is needed now more than ever to keep up with changing candidate priorities. Employee safety, well-being and belonging are at the forefront, but does the candidate experience you deliver match your brand? In a disrupted market with more applications than ever before but still with extreme candidate shortages in key areas, getting this wrong could have serious implications for short term attraction and longer term planning. 

This fast-paced event will deliver valuable insight, experience and expertise from senior talent leaders and solution providers through punchy presentations and panel Q&A, giving you the opportunity to take a step back, learn from our expert speakers and ask any questions.

Speakers & Topics

The overall event theme is focused on matching the candidate experience to your employer brand. A broad range of topics will be covered including attracting the best talent, building and communicating your employer brand, engaging diverse talent, creating a better candidate experience, assessment, using the right technology, automation, using data, onboarding and more.
