    Where’s Waldo: Finding top talent in the crowd
    Lori Kleiman, SHRM-SCP, SPHR Recorded: Aug 8 2019 33 mins
    Recruiting has to be more than just filling a vacant position – and retaining top talent is all about making the right selection to begin with. Managers need to look at the scope of the role – and how that may have changed since the last person held the position. What do they really need in the future…and how can succession planning be impacted by hiring just the right person. Candidates look for jobs in a new way, and the tools available to managers to screen candidates should be utilized. Technology can be a huge time saver in communicating with and evaluating candidates. Tools in background evaluation and personality assessment will be reviewed to help managers determine which are appropriate to bring into their recruiting process. We will provide participants with recommendations to determine starting salary and the proper preparation of the offer letter. Finally, our discussion will conclude with the tools to identify top talent and ensure they are aligned with the long-term success of your organization.

    Learning Objectives:

    ·Options for filling the candidate pipeline
    ·Creating an interview experience that gets the information you need
    ·Embracing technology while still creating a personal connection
    ·Development in background and credit check compliance
    ·Full cycle recruiting goes beyond the offer letter

    Technology, demographics, cultural, social and generational changes mean that why and how we work has changed almost beyond recognition in the last decade. There’s now a five generational workplace, fewer of us to do the work, increased care responsibilities and a fundamental shift in how younger generations want to work and how they value the components of work, life and family.

    The pace of that change continues unabated and it demands that we all start thinking in a different way when it comes to the way we work and live, especially when it comes to ‘managing the balance’.

    In this lively, future-gazing webinar, James Marsh will be discussing the trends, challenges and possible solutions with leading global employers and thought leaders. In amongst that panel, Jennifer Liston-Smith, Head of Thought Leadership at Bright Horizons Work+Family Solutions brings her deep insight and experience of working with leading employers to shape programmes to engage and retain talented parents and carers.
