With the hectic pace of recruiting, the long time spans between job acceptances and start dates, and the lack of in-person interaction, it’s getting harder and harder for employers to create the engagement necessary to retain new hires – or even ensure that they don’t renege before their start date. How much of this can be solved through better communications? Does the hiring process need to change to shorten the time gaps?
The panelists will discuss their recent experiences and share ideas for increasing loyalty, improving retention, and reducing reneges.
In the fall of 2020 Scotiabank made the bold move to remove the resume requirement for all campus hiring in Canada. Getting leadership support for this change was just the beginning. Hear from James Spearing, VP Global Talent Acquisition, on the impact of hiring on potential and how his team is taking this approach global and into areas of experienced hiring. Aligned to the Scotiabank purpose, “for every future”, the Bank is proving that even seemingly traditional industries are very progressive and can evolve for tomorrow’s workforce.
As more companies prioritize diversity recruitment and gender equity, one thing has become clear: traditional or ‘one size fits all’ approaches to recruitment don’t always work or resonate. As employers seek to attract, engage, and recruit Black, Indigenous and racialized women, reimagining more authentic and intentional approaches is critical. So, what’s working and what’s not working? Hear directly from early-career Black, Indigenous and racialized women who have navigated the candidate experience and learn about their perspectives and recommendations.
Competition for talent on campuses in the U.S. today can be best described as “ferocious”. Job posting volumes are growing rapidly, many students are receiving multiple offers, interest in recruitment activities is waning, and reports of students reneging on one offer to accept a better one are becoming common.
To succeed in this market, employers have to become more and more creative; dedicate more resources to the candidate and new hire experience; and, find new ways to reach candidates and develop talent.
Join us for this panel discussion with employers who “work both sides of the border” to gain a better understanding of the campus talent market in the U.S. and what lessons can be learned and adopted in Canada. This may be a window into the future of campus recruiting in Canada – join us for a peek inside!
