Hire Education: How to Perfect Your Hiring Process

Cadence Bank Podcast: In Good Companies

And we’re back! Welcome to Season 3 of In Good Companies. This season, we’re jumping right into the deep end–of the candidate pool.

On our latest bonus episode, we got a crash course in the current hiring landscape from Indeed’s Senior Director of Talent Attraction Jennifer (Jenn) McNorton. She shared the macro trends that have contributed to the tightest labor market in over 50 years and what companies are willing to do to acquire talent. But getting great employees isn’t just about the trends, headlines or benefits. More often than not, the devil’s in the details–and for employers, that means refining your talent acquisition process. Now, more than ever, it’s important to have every step of your hiring process locked in. Because if you don’t, candidates have plenty of other options.

On this episode, Jenn takes us through best practices for every step of the hiring process, from sourcing candidates to salary negotiation. She’s compiled the most effective strategies from over 25 years in recruiting, as well as what she’s observed from successful companies across Indeed’s user base.

We explore recruiting strategies: where to look for candidates and how to keep them engaged along the way. Plus, the art of the interview and the science of salary negotiation. So join us, and find out how to uncover your hidden talent.
