The Fusion team had a great time at the 30th annual AAGE conference. It was great to see what’s happening in the industry and to gain some insight into key trends. Thank you to all that visited our stand, it was great to see some old faces as well as make some new connections.
We want to extend a special congratulations to Melinda Bell from QBE for being nominated for the Will Spensley award for Innovation. Congratulations also goes to Linda Tucknott from Mars Australia for taking home the Most Popular Graduate Integrated Marketing Campaign award, and to Kate Holper from Australia Post for winning the award for Most Popular Graduate Recruitment Video.
We thought it would be helpful to discuss some of the exciting key trends popping up in the graduate industry, and some of the innovations that Fusion is directly responsible for:
- Decreasing the time to market – we have the methodology to complete a comprehensive recruitment process in 4-6 weeks, which increases your retention on offer.
- Digital Assessment Centre (DAC) – the use of a digital tool to streamline the assessment centre process. Allowing all information to be centrally collated and distributed. This technology also allows for interviews to be conducted on the same day as Assessment Centre saving your business and stakeholders precious time.
- Expression of Interest Forms (EOI) – opening a pre-application form to allow graduates to register their interest before applications formally open.
- Offer candidates having access to an online learning tool upon acceptance of offer – GradPassport is Fusion’s very own digital learning portal which allows hiring managers to engage with their graduates as soon as they accept their offer, leading to reduced reneges on offer.
If you would like to discuss implementing any of the above innovations to your graduate recruitment or development, feel free to contact us. Additionally, we would be happy to send out one of our industry leading experts to complete a free evaluation of your GVP.
