To attract right-fit talent, DICK’s had to rethink its Employer Brand, offering a candidate-centric experience across all touchpoints. Realizing in-person interaction was key to its specialized, high-volume hiring needs, DICK’S enlisted the help of its teammates, who created an in-store experience — National Signing Day — that brought its employer brand to life. Encouraging them on were pre-event internal communications, such as personalized recognition and thank you emails that highlighted individuals’ valued contributions. In order to bridge its online efforts with those in its physical stores, DICK’S turned to technology. It enlisted a programmatic push, complete with splash ads, career site pop-ups and National Signing Day-of videos shared across social channels in order to further bring the event to life and generate buzz.
Meanwhile, long job description lists were eliminated in favor of digestible, accessible tabs. And content — expressing HGV’s employer brand with personalized videos or day-in-the-life video testimonials that correlate with job searches — is interactive and paired down or tucked into features and functions. Offering a single source of data, Symphony Talent’s talent marketing platform introduced next-level media buying decisions and integrated the candidate and recruiter experience using the same data.
