According to a recent Randstad study, 86% of workers would not apply for or continue to work for a company that has a bad employer brand. Having a strong reputation and culture as a company is no longer an option: it’s foundational to attract the best talent and retain your top employees. Though employer brands aren't new, many small businesses are new to understanding how to leverage their digital assets to compete with some of the top brands out there. What are candidates looking for about you before they apply?  How can you leverage social media to support you in attracting your ideal candidates? 
In this talk, we tackle these questions and more to help you develop a stronger, more compelling digital employer brand that works for you in your recruiting efforts. You will discover:
1. What an employer brand is and how to assess its effectiveness
2. Best practices for enhancing your digital brand reputation
3. Emerging trends that are being used to close the online prospecting and recruitment gap 
4. How to use AI to optimize your recruitment and screening efforts
5. The top 5 qualities needed to attract and retain great employees.
