Topic:  Recruiting in Changing Times

Registration Fee:  $25

Deadline:  September 1

It goes without saying that the current economic growth in the Upstate is unprecedented. With this growth comes increasing pressure to source and assimilate growing numbers of new employees that can hit the ground running. 

With such a tight labor market, the task may seem both imperative and impossible. Yet, we may very well own the keys to our success...IF...we throw away old modes of thinking in favor of adapting and even transforming the entire applicant experience.

Facilitated by workforce and change management expert Laura Bogardus, Ph.D., SHRM-SCP, this session will use a workshop format to dialogue and exchange ideas with peers on how we can achieve hiring objectives while recruiting in a tight labor market.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Consider the hiring process from the job applicant perspective
  2. Apply a change management framework to refresh or revamp your recruiting plan
  3. Discover ways to demystify the hiring process and attract potential applicants
  4. Learn of resources and out-of-the-box solutions leveraged by your peers
