Build Back Better – Candidate Experience in 2021

22 April 2021


Join us for this exclusive Virtual Reality (VR) experience and be part of the executive level, strategic conversations that will take place for 12 In-house Recruitment Leaders across a range of industries and companies.

As talent leaders we know that a stellar candidate experience keeps the loyalty of current customers, creates new customers, increases the depth of your talent pool, and helps you land the best talent, So it’s become increasingly important to ensure every candidate, whether they’re successful or not, has a positive recruitment experience.

In this session we will be looking to discuss how businesses that are re-building after the economic effects of the pandemic, can create a hiring experience that is fast, friendly and fair. We’ll share valuable insights into what makes a best-in-class candidate experience and how your organisation can use this information to allow for a better hiring process. This VR event is ideally suited for enterprise organisations interested in improving their candidate experience.

What’s being discussed
  • A newly launched experience initiative based on experience and research
  • What makes a great candidate experience
  • What candidate’s expect from the hiring experience in 2021
  • How to ensure your hiring process is fast, fair and free from bias
  • How to use candidate experience as a competitive advantage
  • A prediction of future trends and how to stay one step ahead
  • …and much more!
Who will be attending?

In-house Recruitment Leaders and Heads of Talent Acquisition from a wide spectrum of companies, all with ongoing hiring needs, to exchange strategic insights and best practices in an intimate and engaging environment from companies including Amazon, AstraZeneca, Boots, Deloitte, GFG Alliance, Greene King, Kerry Group, Lloyd’s Register, Munich Re, PlusDental, Richmond and Wandsworth Councils, WPP Health… to name but a few!

How does it work?

Once your attendance has been confirmed, we will be in touch to organise your VR headset loan and delivery. Whilst this event is most effective in a virtual setting, we understand it’s not comfortable for everyone so there is also a 2D option for you to attend.
