With just a few months to go before everyone sets off to their summer holiday destinations, HR-event season is in full swing. The upcoming months you can meet us at Demo Day, HR innov and tech day, HR directors summit and the HR techHub NRW meet up at our Düsseldorf office, just to name a few. There is one extra special event on the calendar in June: VideoNOW. If you are interested in enhancing your recruitment process with video, you should definitely make sure not to miss it and here is why:
#1 The varied program helps you get started with video right NOW
Talking to recruiters in my network I often hear that they are generally interested in adding video to their recruitment toolbox, but they haven’t done so for various reasons: It’s not part of their overall strategy right now, management is not convinced of the benefits yet, there is no budget. However, the biggest hurdle seems to be getting started. The programme of VideoNOW is designed to help you do just that! Martin Koolhoven will inspire you to become a professional storyteller, while Ellen van Dieren will provide practical tips and tricks, Aegon will give you a look behind the scenes of their video recruitment strategy and finally the networking drinks are the perfect occasion to discuss some of your ideas with industry peers while enjoying a cool drink.
#2 It takes place in Pathé Tuschinski Amsterdam
There seems to be a little quarrel about whether or not Pathé Tuschinski Amsterdam is the oldest movie theater in the Netherlands, but one thing is certain: it stands for a spectacular nostalgic experience. The interior and exterior of the theater, that first opened in 1921, allows you to take a magical time travel. If you have never visited, this is your perfect chance to take a tour.VideoNOW will take place in cinema 4 in the new wing of the building located in the Reguliersbreestraat. Don’t worry- you will get a full tour through the main foyer (often times the scene of Dutch film premieres) all the way through the richly decorated building, towards the networking drinks in the VIP-room.
#3 50% of ticket sales are donated to Stichting Kansarme Kinderen in Nederland
The purpose of VideoNOW is inspiring Recruitment, Talent Acquisition and HR professionals to use the power of video to create fairer and less biased recruitment processes that have the experience of the candidate at heart. Hence, making a profit is not the main objective. That’s why we will donate half of the ticket sales to Stichting Kansarme Kinderen in Nederland in the form of free movie tickets. This foundation aims to help children who live in poverty to have a carefree childhood and equal opportunities to start their adult life. They do that by providing gift boxes filled with clothes, shoes, toys and gift vouchers. Let make sure as many children as possible can experience the magic of cinema through VideoNOW!
