09:00 - 09:50 How to build an effective referral program? (workshop) | Day 2
Matthias Wolf (AT) Radancy | CRO DACH ,
András Uzsák (HU) Radancy | Customer Success Manager

Employee referral systems often rank among the top 3 performing channels in the recruitment channel mix, both in terms of the number of relevant incoming candidates and position fulfillment. For some time now, we have known that it is not the referral fee and its amount that drive successful and efficient referral systems. Participants in the workshop will learn how to communicate about the referral system within the organization. They will also explore ways to increase the number of referring employees. After the program, participants will leave with a tangible action plan that they can implement immediately within their own organizations and recruitment processes. 🌟

10:20 - 10:40 Pay per click - is it the right approach? Pay per candidate - is the ROI | Day 2
Péter Civin (HU) Deutsche Telekom IT Solutions | Brand and Communication Advisor

Just as we have long expected a return on investment in commercial marketing and communications to deliver measurable results, we are beginning to accept that we should expect the same from communications supporting Recruitment. But building an employer brand is often a collection of projects that are not expected to deliver tangible results.
Through the introduction of the Deutsche Telekom IT Solutions brand, we seek to answer questions such as: How do we measure the effectiveness of communications supporting recruitment? To what extent are big numbers relevant, what are averages good for and what are they not? How much does a brand (name?) mean? Is DT-ITS worth more than ITSH?
