Over 30 HR Professionals from across the Yorkshire Region, gained a valuable insight into the changing recruitment landscape after attending our latest FREE HR Workshop held at the AMP Technology Centre in Rotherham on Tuesday 5th September.
Comments following the event included…. “A great refresher on the recruitment basics“, “Excellent session this morning” and “The GDPR section was excellent and scary“.
The event entitled “5 Ways to Immediately Improve Your Hiring! + GDPR and Recruitment” was presented by Commercial Manager, Hayley Robinson who combines over 15 years of recruitment experience with her passion for the latest recruitment platforms and trends to provide HR Professionals with practical tips and advice that they can take away and use to improve their own direct sourcing methods and the way they recruit.
After addressing key topics such as what makes a good job advert, the changing expectations of candidates and the effect a bad candidate experience can have on an organisations ability to attract top talent, Hayley went on to discuss the increasing need for employers to introduce a professional onboarding process before delving into the hottest topic on every HR departments agenda, the forthcoming GDPR which comes into force in May 2018.
The Attendees were then provided with the option to ask their own questions which included general advice regarding the introduction of recruitment software, how to avoid inflated costs for management level roles, which platforms deliver the best results, how to increase an organisation’s social media presence and the much debated question of whether or not you should be advertising a salary or not.
The event was the 10th FREE HR seminar run by networx in 2017. Due to the continued success of the seminar, a number of subsequent events are now being organised. Details of which will be available shortly.
