This year's conference topics

The overall topics of this year's conference are recruitment marketing, candidate experience and sourcing. These three topics have been chosen based on feedback from former conference participants and surveys among Nordic HR professionals. 

The rise of Recruitment Marketing

In the last ten years, social media has disrupted the world of recruitment. In the early 2000's there was no such thing as Facebook or LinkedIn etc., but now online & social media has a major impact on a company’s brand and recruitment performance and is a vital tool for HR (Marketers) to leverage.

There is a lot more to recruitment marketing than simply updating the company website and Facebook page occasionally. It is about changing dramatically and HR need to grasp and adopt that there is a new set of recruitment marketing standards. At the Nordic Recruitment Days Conference 2018, you will be inspired by outstanding experts within the Recruitment Marketing arena and you will gain insights on how companies across industries and countries are applying new marketing tools to attract the right candidates.

A professional Candidate Experience is no longer nice to have

Companies are trying to establish a relationship and trust with clients before asking if they want to buy something. Consumers often go through many of these interactions with a company before they are ready to make a purchase. This is known as the customer journey.

Recruiting is no different! Candidates rarely turn up at your website “ready to apply”. They like to learn about your corporate culture and opportunities before they’re ready to dive into an application. This decision-making cycle is known as the candidate journey or experience and is vital to your recruitment process. Successful HR departments apply these metrics as an integrated part of the recruitment marketing effort. Learn how successful companies master the Candidate Experience and how the results were achieved. 

Sourcing is fundamental to your hiring process 

Sourcing – the process of finding resumes have evolved tremendously over the past couple of years. We have even seen a new industry with HR Tech companies emerge – the so-called People Aggregators.

Today the modern recruiter is required to deliver on-demand and with great precision every time the business cries out “we are hiring”. Therefore being at the forefront with relevant insight, lean hiring processes and proper tools are essential to the recruiter’s game. And with the rise of recruitment teams being established in-house, the need for mastering the sourcing domain is not only a consultancy issue, it carries an even broader relevance today. Recent studies show that sourcing is the essential activity in talent management today.
