Thank you for attending the CIPD Recruitment Conference on 13 February 2020 at the Montcalm Marble Arch, London.

In today’s highly competitive and candidate-driven market, effective recruitment is crucial for every organisation to ensure we have the right people in the right roles at the right time. A strong recruitment strategy will need to be aligned with the organisation’s short and long-term objectives to support the business, and ultimately help drive growth and a high-performing workforce. 

There are several pressing challenges and upcoming opportunities for recruiters and HR professionals. To be successful, we need to ensure that processes are inclusive so not to limit talent pools and develop an attractive employer brand. We need to effectively leverage social media channels and provide candidates with a positive experience throughout the recruitment process. Implementing automation and AI will also give us the chance to reduce our transactional burden and dedicate more time to building relations with top-calibre talent. 

The CIPD Recruitment Conference 2020 has been designed to equip you with practical skills, tools, and strategies to overcome these key recruitment challenges and make the most of the upcoming opportunities. Join us to hear from industry leaders and specialists and gain valuable insights on how to maximise the effectiveness of your resourcing and recruitment strategies, in order to position your organisation in a prime spot to attract, recruit and retain premium talent.
