Candidates can’t resist great employer brand content — especially when that content is video. Video drives more engagement than text-based content on social media, in email marketing, and on a webpage. And today, video is often the only way for job seekers to see your people and culture.

So how do you get an employer brand video right without breaking the bank? Dobby Gibson, Digital Communications Manager at Land O’Lakes — and a former agency creative director — will share his tips and tricks including:

  • The importance of starting from a creative brief
  • The do’s and don’ts of remote video production
  • How to create a campaign that will get your video seen and shared

  • Exceeding the expectations of job seekers with personalization at every touchpoint

  • Understanding and analyzing key success metrics as the employer brand evolves

DAY 3

FUTURE OF HR TECH

There's no strategy for Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DE&I) that you simply put into action. Instead, it’s like a unique story your organization is always writing, shaping, and sharing — and everyone from customers to candidates want to know where you stand. 

Technology and AI can help craft a story that resonates with talent and reduces bias in the hiring process. And to have a bestselling DE&I strategy, remember to reflect your authentic employer brand in collaboration with your unique people.

In this session, you’ll learn:

  • The role of technology throughout the talent lifecycle when hiring for diversity
  • How to quickly create and deploy video and story-driven content with ease
  • The importance of setting distinct and realistic diversity hiring goals

Between your ATS, HRIS, CRM, and a slew of point solutions, it’s difficult to craft and manage a system that maintains security and data integrity. These integrations can seem like they're bound by custom code, leaving IT teams at the mercy of external developers if a connection fails. Plus, without transparency, visibility and alerting, issues are often caught well after automations have broken and data is lost.

Enter Phenom’s Integrations Experience. Phenom is developing a centralized hub where HR teams and partners can seamlessly link Phenom’s Talent Experience Management platform with their full stack. In Phenom’s Integrations Experience, you’ll be able to:

  • Seamlessly integrate Phenom with your ATS, HRIS, and favorite apps using an intuitive “no-code” interface. 
  • Save time using pre-configured automation and workflow templates. 
  • Monitor integration success with real-time alerts and reporting.  
  • Enhance data transparency and awareness.
  • Tap into an intuitive form builder to craft multi-step applications, lead generation, event registration forms, and more.

Talent acquisition and discovery relies on clear communication and strong collaboration between recruiters and hiring managers. With so many tasks on the table, like defining the role, mapping the required skills, attracting top talent, screening countless candidates, scheduling multiple interviews, and making critical decisions, any disconnect between recruiters and hiring managers can increase time-to-hire and decrease quality-of-hire.

We’re excited to introduce new innovations at Phenom, like our Hiring Manager Portal, which bridge the gap between recruiters and hiring managers.

In this session, you’ll learn how to:

  • Empower hiring managers with new tools, from requisition configuration to final decision
  • Automate time-wasting tasks and workflows to keep candidates moving forward
  • Eliminate information bottlenecks with actionable insights, centralized dashboards and real-time notifications 
  • Integrate hiring into your everyday apps, like Microsoft Teams

Recruiters and talent acquisition professionals are tasked with discovering, screening, and managing thousands and thousands of candidates, often with limited team bandwidth and disparate systems. 

There’s a simple solution to this growing challenge: clone your recruiters.

OK, OK, we're not there … yet, but while we wait for cloning technology to catch up, we can tap into automation to help put critical hiring workflows on auto-pilot. As organizations prepare for ebbs and flows of hiring activity, automation can help build a stronger pipeline, even before jobs are posted. 

In this session, you’ll learn:

  • How AI and automation helps recruiters meet critical hiring demands
  • What tools are available to begin sourcing for roles that may not exist yet
  • Specific automation recipes can recruiters start using

Dynamic personalization enables talent acquisition professionals to provide every candidate with a customized experience based on skills, interests, background, location, and unique stage in the job-searching journey.

Personalization is key for attracting candidates who begin the process, leave your career site, and return days later, as well as retaining those who join your talent community, create a candidate profile, and complete an application. 

The enhanced experience design helps candidates move through your organization's hiring process faster, and it improves key metrics like decreasing time to hire and increasing quality of hire. 

In this session, you’ll learn:

  • How content personalization works in talent experience
  • What’s required to get started with 1-to-1 personalization
  • How to source and strategically use content, especially video
  • What the future holds for technology and the candidate journey

Skills are the building blocks of talent. For internal talent, maintaining and acquiring new skills are critical to mobility. Career pathing and succession planning is made possible by analyzing your teams’ existing experiences and skills and identifying gaps within the organization. 

With over 80,000 skills in our database, Phenom recognizes that managing this breadth of data manually isn’t tenable. In this session, we’ll discover how skills at scale can be leveraged across the talent lifecycle.

You’ll learn how:

  • Skills are categorized and related to each other
  • You can discover and collect the skills of your candidates and employees
  • Career pathing and succession planning leverages skills to find the right fit
