In this age when everything is mobile and almost everyone is online, how can companies and businesses leverage technology to reach and attract talents?
This was what Julius Paras, Kalibrr’s VP for customer engagement, discussed about at the Philippine Council of Associations and Association Executives (PCAAE) Association Summit 5 held last November 23 at the Philippine International Convention Center Manila.
Speaking in front of company executives from different industries here and abroad, he shared how today’s recruiting processes is different compared to that of years ago.
“We used to walk-in an office and submit our resumes to the secretary, or browse job openings in the newspaper. Today, finding a job is as easy as browsing online on your phone or on a desktop, open a job portal, and click ‘Apply,'” he shared his jobseeker experience back in the days.
In his talk, Julius mentioned that by 2020, 60% of millennials will be the main driver of the APAC economy. He further added that in today’s dynamic recruiting landscape, high touch and high tech recruiting is necessary for successfully snaring qualified candidates in a tight labor market.
“Because we are now living in a digital world, recruitment is now going mobile, it’s going social. It’s time for companies to do the same,” mentioned Julius. Moreover, he expressed the importance of employer branding and continuing to build relationships with current employees, with candidates, and with potential candidates.
The PCAAE, dubbed as an “association of associations”, has over 1,000 members and supporters and was launched on November 20, 2013, to further advance association governance and management in member-serving organizations in the country.
