How to unlock the value of your candidate database
Steven Plehier, Director of HR Transformation at Deloitte, presented a case on how to unlock the value of your candidate database at the Future of Recruitment seminar.
The use of long application forms on corporate websites in order to get structured and searchable candidate data leads to high drop-off rates in applications. Candidates expect a seamless application process which has little interruptions. On the other hand, the candidate database can only be used effectively when the data is complete, validated and correct.
Deloitte showcased how they changed their application process to get more and structured candidate data directly in their Taleo system and how advanced semantic search technology allows them to better source candidate profiles.
