Switzerland-based pharma giant Novartis, with almost 100,000 employees, recruits diverse talent globally, from scientists to marketing employees. Novartis was required to deliver a significant increase in its hiring results, spurring its team to develop innovative ways to source and hire talent -- especially within the company's high growth markets of Asia and Latin America. Joined by Kenexa CEO Rudy Karsan, Maureen Solero will describe how she and the global team re-designed the navigation of the Novartis career website, created an award-winning employee branding program and implemented a recruitment scorecard to measure results. She will also tell attendees how they improved the candidate experience, including a focus on sourcing through social media and eliminating half the clicks needed to use their career website -- a great example of less really being more.
