How to engage hiring managers and improve collaboration?


Want to see how engaging hiring managers helps significantly improve candidate experience?

Watch the webinar recording “How to engage hiring managers and improve collaboration?” on YouTube or read the recap blog article How to engage hiring managers in the recruitment process?

Effective communication and cooperation between recruiters, talent acquisition managers and hiring managers is crucial for a successful hiring strategy.

We have heard horror stories of hiring managers. They set unrealistic requirements for the candidates who don’t find the time to put hiring new employees into focus, don’t prepare for interviews, or are difficult to get feedback from…

However, we often don’t talk about positive experiences with hiring managers and how the experiences were achieved.

This webinar will help change that. We have invited Laura Celentano, Customer Experience Operations Manager at, and Josephine Speed, Talent Acquisition Manager at Waitrose Retail, to share their experiences, learnings and insights on engaging hiring managers and improving collaboration.

Together with our Community Manager, Carina Mättikas, you’ll get a better understanding of which techniques and tools to use to help improve the experience for all parties.
