Morning Workshop A
EB isn't just for recruitment - well understood and well done, your EB also aids in the reduction of attrition and retention.

In this hands-on workshop, we'll explore how the Employer Value Proposition (EVP) is the often misunderstood hero that can help take your employer brand from recruiting to an engagement & retention tool. We'll look at how to create those strategies, what's included and do exercises that you can take back to bring it to life within your own organization.
Through hands-on exercises and case study-centered conversation, participants will learn how to:

It's been over a year since the #MeToo movement went viral. In the first 24 hours, there were over 4.7 million people who used the hashtag on Facebook. On Twitter, there were 19 million uses of the #MeToo hashtag in the last year. While positive things like #HowIWillChange / #HowICanChange and the "Me Too bill" came out of this movement, many companies are still struggling with how to address the important issues driving this movement.
So what is our responsibility in this #MeToo era as protectors of the employer brands? From reputation to culture marketing, in this session we will look at the 6 issues employer brands must address to not only safeguard the brand reputation but flourish as an employer that looks after "her too."
In this session, we will cover:

Knowing what to say comes naturally for some. For others, they fall into the trap of copying and pasting the same job description or email a hundred different times. The problem with that theory is that while it might work for a moment, it won’t work forever. Plus, you’re missing the key to engagement and earning the click: Personalization.

Employer brand, like candidate experience, is a lesson in cross-functional team management. Your employer brand isn’t owned by any one person – it’s owned by many. Candidate experience is the same way – and without a centralized program to manage the touchpoints, your brand will flounder as candidates interact with it. That being said, defining the candidate experience (and all the vast touchpoints that includes) is an immense task – one that you can (in many cases) influence, not control. So, how do you go about documenting, managing, and influencing the candidate experience as it pertains to your employer brand? In this session you’ll:
- Conceptualize the candidate experience, starting from awareness all the way to hire
- Build a matrix for documenting the candidate experience, including areas of opportunity
- Include measurements for impact
- Build prioritization and program management around your next steps
- Receive a template for documenting your own candidate experience

The words on the lips of nearly all Employer Brand leaders is “Candidate Experience.” And yet, there doesn’t seem to be much alignment around what those words actually mean. Is it the employer brand? Our marketing? Is it the application process? The interview process? In reality, it is all of those things, and so much more. As we continue to reckon with our ever-shifting audience and record low unemployment, it is more important than ever to not only understand what it means, but even more critically, how do you create experiences that matter to the people who are going to drive change in our companies. In this session, Tracey Parsons will not only inspire your own definition of candidate experience, but share actionable ways to create delight (what?!?) throughout the candidate’s journey. This session is chock full of things you can take back to work tomorrow to up-level your brand’s candidate experience.
