DETAILS:
With the advent and adoption of online and social media, the traditional approach to recruiting and employer brand is no longer effective. Instead, today's employers need to reinvent their strategies in order to fully leverage these newer channels and connect with talent. 

"Employer Branding in a 24/7 Media World"

During this session, D. Mark Hornung, senior vice president, Strategy, for Findly, will explore the employer brand loyalty loop as it relates to today's 24/7 media world and how this loop can affect employee behaviors in new and different ways. Hornung will address the four stages of the employer brand loyalty loop and the three main channels that impact the loop and how employment marketing should address each one. He will also discuss tools employers can leverage to cope with this accelerating world and manage their employer brands more effectively. Attendees will learn about how their employer brand functions in today's media world and how the foundation of a strong brand narrative can help present a consistent, distinctive and authentic presence in the labor marketplace. 

"Digital Recruiting Strategies: Current Trends and Beyond"

During this panel discussion, Shannon Seery Gude, vice president, Digital & Social Strategy, for Findly will discuss social media as the new job candidate database. Despite the popularity of these sites as a potential resource for recruiting passive candidates and hard-to-find talent, only 7 percent of companies have a formal social talent acquisition strategy in place. This session will explore the research and cover current trends and strategies for digital recruiting across all industries. Attendees will also learn how to factor social recruiting into their organization's talent acquisition strategy.

HR professionals and business leaders interested in learning more about best practices for developing and maintaining strategies to improve talent acquisition and employer brand at their organization are encouraged to attend these engaging sessions.
