jobvite summitJobvite Summit 2014 rolled out this week to bring sourcers, human resources, and talent acquisition pros the lay of the modern recruiting land. 

If you weren't able to join EnteloJobvite, and some of the industry's most influential thought leaders, don't fret. We've put together top highlights and key takeaways from one of the biggest events of the year.

Jobvite CEO Dan Finnigan shares his insights on why transparent, authentic companies attract top talent.

As engagement and appeal become a crucial turning point for the candidate experience, Finnigan recognizes the hiring process is a broken mess of seedy marketing and advertising tactics. A transparent culture and brand authenticity creates a healthy relationship between talent and organizations, which unquestionably helps build a funnel of qualified candidates.

Onboarding much-deservingly elbows its way into the hiring process. And its welcomed with open arms.

In tune with the day's theme of developing a positive candidate experience that thrives on authenticity, frequent communication and building a great employment brand, the importance of the onboarding process was spotlighted as yet another essential aspect recruiters must hone in on.

Many companies forget that the onboarding process continues well past an employee's actual hire date.

Prevent employee turnover, and increase retention and employee satisfaction by maintaining a beneficial line of conversation between team members and the management team. Giving employees the opportunity to share their feedback on the organization provides a platform for constructive criticism and the clear, ample opportunity to make necessary changes.

Make it clear that you care about the way the business scales internally and your team will feel confident that the company is genuinely interested in keeping its foundation strong. 

Also, Jobvite unveiled their soon-to-come, real-time chat support tool.

According to Jobvite's Senior Director of Customer Success Jennifer Fray, it will be released next week.

Overall, it seems like Jobvite Summit was the place to be this week in San Francisco.
