Dedicated 1 Day Summit for In-House Recruitment Professionals



  • Branding on a budget – A NICE Employee Brand; one employee at a time

  • Here at NICE the work we do transforms lives, which is pretty amazing. But nobody really knows what it’s like to be a NICE employee. My job has been to open the curtains and lift the blinds to life at NICE, and I’m doing it by the power of the employee x 650. No real budget, no team to call on and no creative agency, just ideas, opportunities and the passion to make stuff happen.

    Like never before people can see into your organisation – the greenhouse effect, they can see if you help people grow, how hot it can get there, what it's like and there will be positives and negatives to this.

  • Treating applicants as individuals - The candidate is king.

  • Treating candidates as customers helps to establish expectations, perceptions and perceived fairness of the application process. Candidate experience defines every interaction and touch point that a candidate has with the company throughout their application journey, hopefully from initial attraction all the way through to job acceptance - it defines and set the tone for your employee/employer relationship and their perceptions of the company.

    The application process, interview stages and every communication in-between impacts the candidates level of engagement and satisfaction with the hiring process and can make the difference between an offer being accepted... or not. Putting the candidate at the heart of the hiring process should create future ambassadors for your company, regardless of their ultimate outcome.
