Quinte and District: 04.24.19 Post and Pray is not a Recruitment Strategy
Have you ever wondered why organizations have, traditionally, taken a passive approach to sourcing talent?
With 71% of local employers indicating that they have hard to fill positions, it seems hard to believe! We’ll discuss the pendulum swing between a company & candidate friendly market, the need for a reciprocal (2-way) hiring process, the importance of Talent Brand Marketing, and last but not least how to take a more proactive approach to filling our open jobs.
With 48% of local employers taken 3-6 months to fill some positions (14% taking over 1 year) it is time to take a candid look at our internal Recruitment Process (if we have one). This presentation is sure to knock your SOX off (Come find out the reason why it’s spelled that way!)
Registration & Networking 4:30-5:30
Dinner 5:30 -6:15
