This workshop was formerly titled "Winning the War on Talent: Employer Branding & Strategic Recruitment 101"
This workshop will tackle actionable steps you can take right now to help improve your organization’s recruiting, hiring, and retention processes. We'll also look at how you can beef up your employer brand, helping you attract the talent you want, versus settling for the talent you get.
For many businesses, recruiting and hiring even a few new people each year can be taxing – on resources, time, and budget. When we don’t hire the right people, the pain points can ripple throughout the organization and significantly disrupt business continuity and productivity. In this workshop, we’ll focus on ensuring your organization’s talent strategy is clear, effective, and manageable, regardless of team size or if you have an in-house, dedicated recruiter or not.
We’ll also discuss how to scale and modernize your approach to talent acquisition, ensuring headcount is not solely being filled by old school “post and pray” methods, but by developing and nurturing an employer brand that aligns with your needs, budget, and ideal culture. Regardless of whether you’re a small office with limited resources, or a growing organization that’s eager to stand out from the competition to candidates, this workshop will provide actionable tips and strategies you can put to work, right away.
Participants will get a full crash course on all-things talent acquisition, so no previous experience in recruiting or TA is required. A general understanding of whether or not their org/company takes interns, and an idea of how many full-time/part-time/temp hires their company brings on will be helpful for context, but is not mandatory knowledge to attend and benefit from this workshop.
This workshop is great for new/ junior recruiters; HR professionals who have found themselves now needing to understand the talent acquisition side; and for any business leader who wants to take a more active role in helping to develop a strong workplace culture, an effective talent strategy, and an employer brand that attracts best in class hires to join their team.
