Crafting a Standout Candidate Experience
The campus recruitment team at Eide Bailly understands the importance of the experience a candidate has. From the start, they focus on the candidate as a person, working to learn all they can about a candidate to ensure that they find the right fit for the candidate. Throughout the process, the candidate is exposed to not only the recruiter, but also entry level staff, managers, and partners. It is important to Eide Bailly that they are a fit for the candidate as much as the candidate is a fit for them! The campus recruitment team is always ready to answer any questions a candidate has to help them make the best decision about the start of their career!
Moving the Needle on Diversity & Inclusion
Eide Bailly has a Diversity Recruiter, who partners with the Campus Recruitment team, to develop strategies to connect to diverse candidates. They also have a DEI Council made up of firm partners who drive the needle forward - in the past year they have created Employee Resource Groups for staff, including interns, to participate in. They partner with many Women in Business groups at their university partners and have started the process to connect with HBCUs and HSIs. They are also working on strategy to build partnerships with community colleges and high schools in their local markets!
