VIDEO: Hiring During COVID-19: Managing the Candidate Experience in Times of Crisis

Even during the best of times, managing the candidate experience for your recent hires can be challenging. From attracting the right applicants to your job ads to ensuring they have a positive interview experience with your company to their first day of orientation and beyond, a candidate has many interactions with your company that need to be shaped. But, during the COVID-19 pandemic, managing the candidate experience can be a whole new obstacle to overcome. Without the regular face-to-face interactions and the potentially large number of applicants you may be receiving for your open roles, it can be difficult to maintain the same level of candidate experience.

To help businesses hire new talent and continue to provide a five-star candidate experience, we recently held a virtual panel discussion in partnership with The Sydney Morning Herald and The Age, where we explored the emotional and psychological aspects of recruitment attraction and the candidate experience during the COVID-19 crisis. We spoke with Clare Johnson from Page Personnel, Lorraine Dooley from Canva, and Laura Paton from PaperCut Software, who each offered valuable insights into the hiring, candidate experience, and talent attraction processes at their organisations during this unprecedented time. 

In this panel discussion, you will learn tips and best practices on how to adapt your recruiting process during the coronavirus crisis—whether you are currently hiring or not. Our moderator and Head of Career Insights here at Indeed, Jay Munro, also shares data on just how important the candidate experience is to job seekers, and a three-stage plan on how you can start improving your candidate experience today.
