Employee Connections Content Blocks

Recruitment Marketing Public

Introduction

The Employee Connections module allows you to reinforce the Employer Brand messaging on your career site with powerful employee generated content. Employee Connections' always-on question and answer platform, along with the Live Chat functionality, allows candidates to connect directly with your existing employees, providing validation around your messaging. For more information on Employee Connections, refer to Employee Connections overview.

You can extend the reach of that valuable employee generated content to other areas of your talent attraction strategy by utilising content blocks to showcase your Employee Connections content on website landing pages or by including it within nurture emails.
