Would you like to engage with a small group of peers to discuss issues such as how to be human in a digital age, the future of chatbots and their potential impact on recruitment, how we are shifting to an entirely new and more innovative workforce, or which recruiting apps and tools really deliver value and are practical to implement.
If so, you might want to attend our annual Retreat. It is limited to 25 talent leaders where we engage, along with experts, in discussing a variety of issues and trends that will impact recruitment, learning, and HR.

Building Trust as a Recruiting Strategy
Building relationships is what recruiting is all about. And to build a successful relationship the first requirement is for the candidate to trust you and the organization.
But trust has to be earned. Even though there may be an implicit level of trust even at the beginning of a relationship, it takes more to cement trust. The candidate has to believe that you are telling the truth and have a legitimate interest in them. If they discover that they have been lied to or that your interest is purely self-serving, trust will disappear. Building lasting trust takes time, interaction, and the accumulation of a series of actions that demonstrate care and interest.
Some advice on building trust.
  1. The first step is to have an open attitude toward anyone. Show interest, ask questions, and be curious about them.
  2. Always be truthful, candid and open.
  3. Listen to understand and for the hidden messages.
  4. Read between the lines and get a sense for their attitude, concerns, and likes. Find out them as people, not just candidates.
  5. Follow through on any promise.
  6. Provide feedback promptly on their status.
