View this on-demand webinar to learn how many employers continue to struggle to identify, engage and convert talent for their organizations. Bersin by Deloitte’s industry study, High-Impact Talent Acquisition: Key Findings and Maturity Model1 found that, among respondents, the two most influential predictors of talent acquisition performance outcomes are the relationship between recruiters and hiring managers, and developing candidate pools. As such, it should not come as a surprise that talent acquisition typically remains top on the list of priorities across the Human Resources Suite.


In addition, candidate experience—often touted as a key differentiator for high-performing talent acquisition functions today—is finally being addressed as a priority. As talent attraction efforts are improved, employers should also focus on fostering positive experiences for talent prospects—which often requires recruiters and hiring managers be aligned in their approach to candidate engagement. With various touchpoints along the talent acquisition journey, it involves a systematic approach to address specific candidate needs and expectations.

During this webinar, we examine the important relationships between recruiters, hiring managers and candidates as it relates to enabling a more positive candidate experience. We will also learn from Accenture ASG,2 and understand how their approach helped them effectively build and nurture relationships with top candidates. We will touch upon important insights and dive into ways to measure candidate engagement success.

Specific topics will include:

  • The importance of relationships and trends relative to building relationships and robust candidate pools.
  • Delivering on and measuring engagement through strategic metrics; a lesson from Accenture ASG.
  • An overview of leading practices and trends in candidate relationship management.
