Speaking at a breakfast seminar event, organised by e-recruitment specialists WCN, senior representatives from Cammio, Arctic Shores, Alexander Mann Solutions and Idibu stressed the importance of taking a customer-centric approach to volume recruitment – and reacting to the changing demands of Millennial candidates in particular – would be vital to hiring and retaining the best quality intakes in volume drives.
Charles Hipps, WCN CEO, highlighted five key indicators for recruiters to consider in order to stand out and gauge the interest of applicants throughout their application journey:
- Start early – Get to know talent from an early point e.g. looking at community sites devoted to you sector and student discussion boards.
- Engage thereafter on an ongoing basis – Keep people attached to your brand across as many touchpoints as possible – maybe portals or mentoring for example.
