The Future Of Recruitment

Outlined in the presentation;

  • The importance of talent now more than ever
  • How companies are leveraging social media to build communities
  • How companies are building their brand through technology

Peter also highlighted that the utilisation of mobiles has increased significantly, for example 1.2 billion mobile apps were downloaded between 25-30 December. Cpl understands the importance of utilising mobile apps having launched Ireland’s first free job search app, which is now one of the top ranking business apps.

Knowing your employee value proposition is very important; often your brand is not what you think it is. In addition he states that engagement is key. Companies are encouraged to focus not on salaries, but on engaging with staff. Peter suggests working with companies such as Junior Achievement as a simple way to improve people engagement.

  • Getting engagement will be key
  • Companies should utilise technology and the web
  • Recruitment starts with the CEO
