Share

Phenom today released the third annual European Edition of its eighth annual State of Candidate Experience Benchmarks Report, which analyzes and ranks Fortune 500 companies based on how they are attracting, engaging and converting talent throughout the candidate journey. The European audit report revealed the majority of organisations are failing to leverage data and personalised, contextual information to support candidates throughout their journey to find the right work — for example, 96% did not ask about skills to match candidates with related job openings.

With these opportunities to improve considered, the report also highlights notable year-over-year progress when leveraging AI, automation and talent marketing strategies to enhance experiences for candidates — including a 529% increase in featuring dynamically curated content, including information about the company, open jobs, benefits, culture, employee testimonials and interview tips.

Opportunities to Improve Matching Candidates with the Right Work

  • 97% do not have social media content embedded in the job seeker experience
  • 96% do not provide job recommendations based on experience level or job titles
  • 95% do not have job recommendations based on a created profile
  • 89% do not automatically detect the candidate’s geographic location to suggest relevant, nearby jobs
  • 20% decrease of having a chatbot on career site

How the European 100 is Building Better Candidate Journeys with AI and Engaging Content

  • 123% increase in displaying video content featuring employee testimonials that showcase company culture and reasons to work there
  • 87% provide an easy authentication process for returning users
  • 79% have content in multiple languages tailored to specific locations
  • 32% increase in featuring a job cart or ability to easily favorite jobs
  • 10% increase in having a clearly visible and accessible “apply” button

Over the past year, the European labor market has been heavily influenced by supply chain disruptions affecting regional supplies, demographic shifts causing labor shortages, and the prioritisation of DE&I in the workplace — among other things.

Simply publishing a career site is no longer enough; talent acquisition teams, talent marketers, and recruiters must invest in the right AI and personalization technology, content and talent marketing strategies, employer branding and user experience to establish indispensable connections that convert job seekers into applicants.

Recommendations to Improve the Candidate Experience

Phenom’s 2024 European Edition of the State of Candidate Experience report includes prescriptive guidance for organisations seeking to improve how they attract, engage and convert talent with automation and intelligence.

  • Attracting and engaging top talent faster. Candidates continue to search for their next job across many disparate channels. Organisations must adopt a comprehensive talent marketing approach that makes jobs widely accessible. Consistent branding and a clear value proposition should be reflected in every step of the journey.

  • Delivering a one-of-a-kind experience. Candidates are unlikely to apply if it is difficult to find information when researching a potential employer. AI and automation can personalise every touchpoint and streamline the discovery of relevant opportunities.

  • Turning passive job seekers into new hires with a seamless process. Candidates no longer complete job applications that are time and labor intensive. Organisations must introduce a fast and frictionless job discovery and application process, spanning no more than 3 minutes for high-volume roles.

“It’s clear the competition for top talent is not won by a standalone career site or chatbot — job seekers are engaging with companies across a multitude of channels,” said John Harrington, Sr. Director, Product Marketing at Phenom. “Savvy organisations are keeping up by leveraging intelligence and automation to deliver personalised candidate experiences across every touchpoint, ultimately improving the way they engage and convert a broader talent pool.”

With Phenom, candidates find and choose the right job faster, employees develop their skills and evolve, recruiters become wildly productive, talent marketers engage with extreme efficiency, talent leaders optimize hiring processes, managers build stronger-performing teams, HR aligns employee development with company goals, and HRIS easily integrates existing HR tech to create a holistic infrastructure.
