Presentation Description:

Tools & Tactics for Winning the Talent Wars

Hiring, Talent Acquisition, Recruiting—no matter what you call it, it’s a hot issue for employers. In a recent survey by Harvard Business Review, CEOs listed talent as one of the top issues keeping them up at night, and the head of a national trade association called “lack of available talent” one of the most significant barriers to growth.

In this session, Jenifer Lambert, Vice President of TERRA Staffing Group, will get beyond the buzzwords and the hype and share practical guidance for any employer who is serious about winning the “war for talent.” Come ready to learn:

  • Creative strategies to access hidden talent pools
  • How the game has changed when it comes to attracting candidates and how you need to adjust to compete
  • Common compensation and benefits mistakes that employers make which waste dollars and cost them talent
  • How to juggle the expectations of a multi-generational workforce. Millennials aren’t going away (actually, the best and brightest will if you don’t understand how to engage them)
