About the book
Written for HR professionals and all those responsible for talent acquisition, this evidence-based guide explains what candidate experience is, why it matters and how it impacts the bottom line.
Candidate Experience discusses why talent acquisition is more than just recruitment and provides expert guidance on all the key phases of the experience: attraction, application, interviewing, offer and onboarding. There is clear explanation of how to use data, metrics and KPIs to track and measure candidate experience as well as essential coverage of how to excel at recruitment in a post-Covid world from remote interviewing to surge hiring and identifying the new skills a company needs to thrive. This book takes a strategic approach to candidate experience and offers advice on how to deal with business resistance whether this is due to cost, time, regulation or perceived value.
Supported by insights from more than 10 years of research in the area from over 1,200 companies and over 1.25 million candidates, practical tools such as a business impact calculator and case studies from organizations including AT&T, Walgreens and Deluxe, this is essential reading for all those responsible for acquiring and engaging the talent the business needs to succeed.
