Developing a cutting edge High Volume Recruitment Strategy

Date: Friday 25th of November 2016

Venue: Copenhagen, Dansk Arkitektur Center (DAC)

Moderators: Colin Minto & Dimmy van Zanten

People are your greatest asset, so of course you’ve got to have great recruitment

processes in place. But when you have got large volumes of candidates, the stakes are

even higher.

In attracting and sifting these applicants, it is essential to strike a balance between

efficiency and competing to attract top talent. With high volumes, you also need to

ensure you are delivering an engaging candidate experience that leaves a positive

impression of your brand.

You will get to bounce your ideas off other HR leaders, and work together, hands-on to

build an effective strategy to take away.
