What to expect in talent attraction in 2023
If you’re confused about what to expect in 2023, you’re not alone! Between cooling economic indicators but still a red-hot talent market, it may seem hard to prepare for what’s to come.

During this presentation, Chris will present data and insights to help you:
- Prepare for the unprecedented hot/cold talent acquisition environment that’s expected in 2023

- Make sense of an ever-evolving TA tech landscape
How to take employee generated content to a whole new level
Over and over, it’s been proven that talent audiences want to see what it’s really like to be an employee at your company. And the more authentic it is, the better!
Leesha Bush-Anderson and Rebecca Brookson from TTEC will be sharing how they turned National Intern Day into a week-long talent attraction strategy! They handed over their careers Instagram and TikTok channels to TTEC’s interns, who took over the channels and shared their stories and the opportunities made available to them through the internship program. This social media takeover strategy resulted in increased engagement on TTEC’s social media by 20%, not to mention lots of fresh interest in their intern program.
Leesha and Rebecca will tell the story of how this strategy came about, what they learned from the experience and how you can leverage your own interns and employees to provide a truly authentic view into life inside your company.
Enabling your most important Recruitment Marketing resource: creativity
While it’s easy to think that throwing money at a problem will solve it, that’s rarely the case! Often the most interesting and effective ideas are the ones that don’t require a lot of money and resources, but instead some creative thinking! And this approach is what’s setting the future of talent attraction apart from the past!
That’s exactly what Jana Luitjens, Sr. Recruitment Marketing & Employer Branding Specialist at Parexel, and Jessie Summerfield, Talent Acquisition Marketing Manager at Advocate Aurora Health, have done to find success this year.
Through their own creativity, consistency in their messaging and a multi-channel approach, they’ve built robust talent pipelines for their companies, which has been no easy feat! They’re in 2 of the hardest industries to recruit for right now: healthcare and pharmaceuticals.
Jana and Jessie will not only share examples of their campaigns, but also their process for measuring success to know what’s working and how to repeat it.
Why you need a careers blog to tell your employee stories
What is the most effective way to give candidates an inside view into your culture, values and employee experience? If you’re thinking “a careers blog,” then you’d be right! But starting one can seem like a daunting project to take on.
It doesn’t have to be!
At RallyFwd, the award-winning Recruitment Marketing team at UPMC will teach you how you too can create an effective Careers Blog strategy, whether you’re starting from scratch or taking your blog to the next level. Kristin Andreassi, Bethany Thiede and Grace Leuenberger from UPMC will share their process for building and scaling a Careers
Blog, one story at a time, and the marketing tactics they’ve used to turn their blog into a talent attraction magnet.
The future of employee generated content
Research shows that candidates trust what your employees say more than what companies say about themselves.
But what if you enabled your teams to do more? What if they became content creators, talking about your company culture from their unique perspective and in their own voice?
The future of employee generated content (EGC) is going beyond employees resharing corporate social media posts to creating their own content that gives an authentic view of their employee experience and connects directly with talent. At RallyFwd, Chris Woods from Mars will share how he took his EGC strategy to the next level by helping Mars’ Associates to build their own personal brands, and in the process, boosting talent attraction to the Mars employer brand.
Attracting diverse talent through employee referrals
Most companies encourage and even incentivize employees for making referrals. It’s a great strategy (and a low-cost strategy!) for getting introduced to high-quality candidates quickly. At RallyFwd, Abigail Chambley from Mission will share the specific strategies she’s used to turn Mission’s employees into active recruiters. She’ll also share how this program has improved quality of hire with a 2-step incentive program, and how she has partnered with Mission’s employee resource groups (ERGs) to reach diversity hiring goals.
Whether you are at the beginning of formalizing your employee referral program or you’re ready to take your program to the next level, you’ll walk away from Abigail’s RallyFwd presentation with a blueprint that you can put into action right away.
