One persistent irony in staffing and recruiting: the industry can be so fast-paced, it can be easy to overlook the needs and experience of our most valuable asset: our candidates. Thankfully, many agencies are prioritizing the candidate experience, and not a moment too soon.
To help us explore ways to elevate the candidate experience, Kelli Schutrop spoke with a 30-year veteran of staffing and recruiting and expert on the candidate experience, Andrea Pion. Andrea is a VP of National Client Programs at the highly awarded Davis Companies. Together with Kelli, Andrea discussed the candidate experience – how it’s been historically, the current state of the candidate experience in staffing and recruiting today, and where it’s going.
Keep an eye out for key mentions for Andrea’s highly recommended reading on the subject: Raving Fans and Find Your Why. Some highlights from their discussion include:
