  • This event has passed.

23/08/2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm


 Harvest Recruitment and Harvest Human Resources – Geelong

This workshop will draw on Harvest’s extensive experience in the global recruitment market.

Over the past decade there has been a significant pivot in how companies of all shapes and sizes attract the highest calibre talent. No longer is posting a basic job advertisement going to find you the best in the business.

Key takeaways:

  • What is a candidate’s market and where the heck did it come from?
  • Employer branding: the contouring of the talent world
  • Why a job advertisement isn’t the only way to get candidates
  • What Corporate Social Responsibility is and why you need to get on it
  • How not to lose candidates along the way.

All participants will walk away with a free Harvest employer branding “check-up”.
