The Candidiate Engagement Webinar was held on the 22nd of September 2015 by Geoff Peterson. He provided significant and crucial practices every organization can follow to attract the best pool of talent.

Geoff passed down some of the best practices that can be incorporated in your Talent Acquisition Strategy:

1. Find a personal tie-in (relationship, article, alma mater, mutual friend) to increase chances of a reply

2. Email is still key – even if you use social channels, find their email address and use that as almost everyone reads email often.

3. Several touches on different networks are a good idea – you never know if they are actively watching LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, etc.

4. Emailing someone at work – use “networking” as your ask

5. Longer emails are OK – include details of the position in the body.

This is how WittyParrot can save time when Sourcing by:

1. Making it easy to personalize your outreach messages and reuse any info again and again

2. Making it easy for organizations to share out best practice content/job information, etc. across teams (rather than expecting recruiters to do it all themselves)
