“Hey! Come and join us, we don’t have any challenges or problems to fix. Our coffee is never bitter and even though we have no fridge our beer is always ice cold!”
Does this sound familiar? Attracting potential employees and engaging them with your brand is more competitive – and more important – than ever before. As a result, demonstrating a ‘perfect’ work culture is priority for many businesses.
But, why don’t we tell candidates the truth? In 2019, candidates are more savvy than ever before. Fake news has entered the lexicon and candidates can now easily differentiate between reality and an illusion.
In the second in our new series of webinars, designed to help companies and HR professionals thrive, Blue Octopus has teamed up with Simon Halkyard, ASDA, to demonstrate the importance of transparency when hiring. Together, we’ll be discussing and finding answers to the question: “How do you hire talent in an Instagram world?”
Simon has worked in recruitment since 2000. He started his career working agency side, prior to managing his own recruitment business for several years, and more recently has worked in-house as a Talent Acquisition Partner at Shop Direct. He is currently responsible for the in-house Resourcing team at ASDA.
