This Shaker workshop will include a keynote presentation from Jim Gilmore, experience expert and author. Jim will invite you to consider the candidate experience based on the combined insights from his latest book Look: A Practical Guide for Improving Your Observational Skills and one of his previous books, The Experience Economy: Work Is Theater & Every Business a Stage. Jim is principal of Strategic Horizons, a thinking studio dedicated to helping companies conceive and design new ways of adding value to their economic offerings.

The workshop will also include presentations and interactive sessions facilitated by:

  • Kevin Grossman, Talent Board vice president

HR and talent acquisition teams today need this competitive insight–and the skills to employ them–to attract, engage, and hire the right talent to grow their businesses.

According to the latest Talent Board candidate experience data, job seekers share their stories everywhere, the good and bad:

  • 82% will share positive recruiting experiences with their inner circle
  • 68% will share negative experiences with their inner circle
  • 51% will share positive stories publicly via social media
  • 35% will share negative stories via social media

In today’s digital age, in which people share so many of their experiences online, providing a positive candidate experience can pay dividends. A poor candidate experience can be bad for business and translate to higher recruiting costs, lost customers, and potentially lost revenue.
