We would like to invite you to join the Graduate Recruitment And Development Community (GRADC) Facebook group.
Technology has transformed the way organisations design and manage their recruitment processes. The days of paper-based screening are long gone, replaced by online technology which manages the application process smoothly and efficiently for organisations and candidates. Smart digital innovations such as online assessment and video interviewing are being used to assess talent in a fast, effective and fair way, helping organisations make better hiring decisions. Yet, all too often the investment in technology-led solutions in the early stages of the hiring process is not matched when it comes to the assessment centre. This digital disconnect means the assessment centre – a mainstay of the hiring process – remains a labour intensive, paper-based and error-prone.
In a recent AAGE survey, 66% of employers cited diversity and inclusion as a key challenge that remains when recruiting graduates.

With the 2018 graduate recruitment year ending and preparation for 2019 commencing, it seemed an apt time to take heed and consider the recruiting year ahead.Read More
