Recently, a group of well-known publications (Fortune, Essence, and People in Español) teamed up with Great Places to Work to release their first “50 Best Workplaces for Diversity” report, bringing more attention to the topic of diversity and inclusion (see their methodology and a full list of the results here).
One shining example of how much the world of recruiting is changing is the emergent importance of Candidate Experience (“CX”). It wasn’t long ago that finding a candidate was the key to filling jobs, and certainly, many times finding a candidate was a hard enough challenge for companies.
Today, times are different thanks to technology tools, job boards, and social networking sites. You might be able to find candidates, but having a great job isn’t enough to win them over. To attract the talent you need to succeed, your challenge is now engaging those candidates by providing a great experience so that they want to work for you.
