Don’t get left behind! Recruiters and Leaders do not want to miss this!

Understanding the changing landscape of recruitment requires a different way of interacting with the business and the marketplace.  In order to win the war for talent in today’s environment, recruiters need to evolve their roles into strategic Talent Advisors - business partners who anticipate and direct the talent needs of the organization.  Talent Advisors help inform staffing decisions with acute knowledge of the organization, the industry and deep expertise of external markets.  Yet, fewer than 1 in 5 recruiters today are proficient as Talent Advisors.  Operating in this way requires a seismic shift in how recruiters think and work with business partners; how they use assessment and technology tools; how they hone and apply skills in influencing and data analytics; and how they adapt their processes to change.  

This interactive session will provide participants with the foundational tools needed to create a tailored Talent Advisor Playbook that focuses on three critical areas:


1.     Building Trust

·       Effectively listen to and communicate with stakeholders

·       Counsel hiring managers regarding the best talent decisions for the team and organization

·       Identify the market trends and data that matter most for making talent decisions

2.     Sharing Knowledge

·       Use data-centric thinking to influence the business

·       Develop tailored recruitment plans that align the candidate profile with the job and the realities of the marketplace

·       Scan employee data to identify “ready now” as well as next-gen leaders

3.     Providing Results

·       Leverage curated business acumen to get better outcomes

·       Create  value by translating information and data into actionable strategies for finding and attracting the best talent

·       Solve recruiting problems through creativity, persistence and adaptability
