8:40 am - 9:20 am

In 2019, we face the most unique hiring challenge of the 21st century. The employment market is decidedly in favor of the candidate, and Talent Acquisition has responded – the candidate experience is quicker, easier, mobile-friendly; the channels of recruiting tech continue to widen the “net.”

Meanwhile turnover increases, retention decreases, and the trend looks to continue.

In this session, you will learn:

  • Market conditions that have created a “candidate cocktail.”
  • Why you may be doing the opposite of what will be a successful talent strategy.
  • How we may all be Millennials.
