Talent Games II: Finding, Engaging and Retaining the Talent You Need

The numbers tell the story: 

  • 10,000 baby boomers turn 65 every day, and they will for the next 20 years
  • Turnover is up sharply, according to the Hay Group 161 million employees will change jobs this year
  • Harvard Business Review reports that 4 out of 5 CEO’s are concerned about their company’s ability to find the talent they need
  • Gallup reports that only 3 of 10 American workers are engaged at work

Recruiting is more important than ever to your organization. At the same time, recruiting today is much more complex. We have more tools, more places to look, and our recruiting teams are often swamped with requisitions. Today anybody can be found, but activating A players is tough.
In this session attendee’s will walk away with:
An overview of how to build an effective recruiting program, and a self-evaluation tool to diagnose and improve the one you already have in place.
A discussion around how to move hiring managers from adversaries
An overview of best practices today in talent acquisition, engagement and retention.
A framework to evaluate recruiting vendor options and best practices around how they are used to solve recruiting challenges.
