#NowTrending: Embracing Non-Traditional Work Arrangements? It’s happening, sort of.

Posted by Colleen Naugle on July 5, 2018 at 10:20 AM

Flexibility. Autonomy. Low employee turnover (a.k.a. employee retention). In 2018, employees want the former two, while employers seek the latter most of all. The thing is, everyone can have their cake — workplace flexibility and of-the-moment recruitment tools — and eat it, too.

Recruitment trends in 2017 saw an emphasis on increasing employee engagement, boosting employee retention and using automation technology to streamline processes, therefore it is no surprise this year will see further disruption to what’s tried and true. That includes non-traditional work arrangements — flexible schedules and remote work opportunities, in particular.

According to the Society for Human Resource Management’s most recent Employee Benefits Survey, in order to remain competitive in the talent marketing sphere, it’s necessary to accept — even champion — workplace flexibility as part of your Employee Value Proposition (EVP). Once considered an impediment to productivity by employers, it turns out telecommuting and variable work schedules are now among the most effective tools for both attracting and retaining employees. It’s why two out of five survey respondents cited non-traditional work arrangements as essential tools in their recruitment arsenal — with 62 percent pointing to telecommuting and 57 percent to flexible schedules, no less.

The Digital Transformation of Recruitment Marketing

Posted by Colleen Naugle on June 26, 2018 at 8:00 AM

Disruptive technologies are impacting the world of recruitment marketing – turning recruiting from something that was one-way and transactional into a highly data-driven and candidate-centric experience. Early on, marketing departments were quick to see the value of data and quickly deployed technologies that could leverage the information. However, due to the systems they currently have in place, HR is just beginning to move beyond their traditional analytics of demographics, compliance and diversity statistics – and embracing data that tells the story of the candidate’s journey.

As we’re disrupting the talent acquisition space by applying consumer marketing principles and techniques through a talent acquisition lens (candidates are, after all, consumers), Symphony Talent is operationalizing the candidate journey in a way similar to companies like Salesforce that map the entire customer journey. We are going deeper than just providing another ATS or system integration and are redefining the way employer brands speak to and connect with talent – with easy-to-use solutions for every recruiter on the team.

Posted by Colleen Naugle on March 8, 2018 at 11:28 AM

The impact of digital transformation is changing every industry and that means talent acquisition strategy can’t be “business as usual.” New growth requires a new approach. We recently had the opportunity to speak with two leading healthcare organizations about the challenges they face in hiring for both clinical and non-clinical roles as well as their winning strategies for attracting candidates and engaging top talent.

Michael Drayer, Group VP of Strategy & Client Services here at Symphony Talent was joined by Jessica Schuster, Manager of Candidate Engagement & Experience at Northwell Health, and Robin Epstein Ludewig, Senior Director of Talent Acquisition at UCLA Health, in our webinar “From Coast to Coast, How To Conquer Challenges of Quality Hiring in Healthcare.” Together, they discussed the key strategies and tools that have helped them win top talent while recruiting in the rapidly evolving healthcare industry.

Webinar Recap: How to Hire Quality Candidates

Posted by Colleen Naugle on February 21, 2018 at 12:03 PM

If you think about it, your candidates are “consumers” of career opportunities. They want to connect with employers the same way they do with their favorite brands. And, just like consumers, candidates are very much in the driver's seat. If they have a bad experience interacting with your company, they’ll take their “business” elsewhere.
