Group Project

Group Project – HRMT 624
In 2021, a LinkedIn article (link attached below) highlighted how the pandemic has shifted candidates’
expectations dramatically — and perhaps permanently. The article also highlighted the need for
organizations to meet and exceed candidates’ shifting expectations, by creating a candidate experience
that leaves applicants with the best possible impression of their employer brand.
Two of the five candidates’ trending new expectations highlighted in the LinkedIn article are:
1.
Candidates expect companies to give them a feel for the culture, even in a remote environment
2. Candidates are more invested than ever in hearing about DEI efforts
Group Project Question:
