29 - 30 September, 2015

As we emerge from the great recession and employers face greater competition for individuals with key skills, it is imperative that talent acquisition and talent management leaders can move their organizations from tactical to strategic. As a response to the recession, most corporations reduced hiring needs, and thus cut the size of recruiting teams and budgets. As we have emerged from the recession, re-investment in talent acquisition has been slow. As recruiting teams have continued to be understaffed and underfunded, even as the economy has strengthened and hiring needs have grown, they have been forced to focus on reactive, tactical recruitment plans.

Through this conference, learn to position your talent acquisition organization as a results-driven, proactive, strategic partner in your company’s success. You will engage in discussions with industry thought leaders, innovative practitioners and peers, and you’ll be ready to move your function from tactical to strategic. You will position yourself as a leader ready to compete for talent is the changing labor market.

We will explore important topics, such as labor market shortages, employment branding, recruitment analytics, sourcing, and assessment through both traditional keynote speeches and concurrent sessions, as well as through dialogue in both an un-conference and roundtable setting with your peers and industry leaders.

In addition, you’ll learn effective methods for communicating your strategy and telling your recruitment story to all of your stakeholders, thus positioning you and your team as forward-thinking and strategic.
