Emotional Intelligence, Data & People

Recruiters, if you’ve worked through the pandemic, you’ve likely noticed a lot of apprehension and uncertainty. It’s easy to get wrapped up in outcomes, data tracking, and KPIs. 

But often, we lose sight of the fact that our data points represent people. 

For candidates, a new job is a decision that will impact their daily life. For a hiring manager, the wrong hire can cost time and money, and [set them back on goals].

So how do we engage antsy candidates, work with overwhelmed hiring managers, and help everyone involved avoid fear-based decisions while we’re all being mauled by anxiety? 

It’s time to put on our counseling hats. 

Using emotional intelligence and data, we must learn to guide them toward their decisions and work through the fear rather than dismiss it. We don’t get to sail on denial here in Covid land. Being an effective recruiter right now means knowing how to take on real feels and work with them.

In this session, Laura Mazzullo walks us through recruitment best practices and strategies on how to hire in a pandemic. 

Stock up on tea and Kleenex, connect with your inner child — we’re gonna get real with this shit. 

Talking Points:

  • Guiding hiring managers and candidates to clarity using emotional intelligence and data.
  • Helping candidates ‘stay in their own lane,’ work through their fears
  • Acceptance vs. Resistance: Make room for big feelings, it’s your job now
  • Questions to make everyone think differently
  • The importance of “Hell yes” vs “Hell no!” during a candidate’s job-search journey
