Aon Presents a New Way to Recruit and Develop Graduates at AAGE 2017

October 3, 2017 Aon's Assessment Solutions

Assessment experts from Aon will provide fresh insights and best practice on the use of mobile devices to attract and select graduates, the new competencies required for digital working and why the candidate experience is key at the 2017 AAGE annual graduate recruitment & development conference (25-27 October, Sydney, Australia).


Aon's Assessment Solutions is the platinum sponsor of the event, which is organised by the Australian Association of Graduate Employers (AAGE), a leading industry body. The AAGE’s 29th annual conference will include keynotes, workshops and interactive discussion forums focusing on the ‘bigger picture’ of why employers have graduate programs and how these influence the organisational culture.

David Barrett, Chief Commercial Officer of Aon's Assessment Solutions, will present a keynote session explaining how HR and talent professionals can attract and engage the ‘mobile generation’ by optimising their approach to assessment and gamification, and by improving the candidate experience (11.15am, Thursday 26 October).

John Chan, Principal of Aon Talent, Rewards and Performance in Australia, will host a workshop outlining what ‘digital millennials’ want from their employer and how they can transform an organisation (11.30am, Thursday 26 October). John will introduce cut-e’s new digital competency model, which employers can assess and develop candidates against.

“Digital competence - the attitude and ability that enables us to embrace technology, collaborate with others and work more effectively - is a new strategic priority for every organisation,” said David Barrett. “Today’s graduates are expected to connect with others and collaborate in a digital context. Our sessions will examine the key competencies that will enable them to do this effectively, as well as new ways that HR and talent teams can attract, engage and select the right individuals, using mobile devices and the next generation of game-based assessments.”

The 2017 AAGE annual conference will be held at the Hilton Sydney, 488 George Street, Sydney, Australia on 25-27 October.
