MegaTrends in Recruiting: Practical Strategies for Gaining Unfair Advantage in the War for Talent
This Webinar has been approved for SHRM and HRCI Re-Certification Credit.
We’re all familiar with the concept of the “war for talent” and we know it’s more than a buzzword, it’s a business reality. Talent acquisition and retention has gone from an “HR issue” to a key business concern. According to the Harvard Business Review, CEOs list the ability to attract and retain talent as a greater concern than global competition, regulations or legislation.
Now is not the time to wring your hands and declare defeat. In the midst of this great challenge lies an even greater opportunity to leverage your expertise, build partnerships within the organization and reinforce your value as a business partner.
In this session, Jenifer Lambert will provide practical solutions and strategic guidance on issues like:
- Generational expectations: Research provides surprising insight into what the different segments of the workforce value most in an employer.
- Strategies for engaging job seekers (passive and active) beyond traditional job postings.
- Leveraging your culture as a competitive advantage. Hint: “Work hard, play hard” is played out.
- A game plan for gaining great hiring manager involvement.
