  • Participate in Jobscience's panel conversation!

    When compensation -- or a consumer brand -- is not the main attraction of your offer, how does your organization find, engage, and hire top talent?

    Recruiting leaders from non-profit sectors of government and education discuss attracting talent for their social causes, cost effective strategies when budgets are limiting and the role of technology.

    Panelists include::
    Catherine Pajic, Global Recruiter, National Democratic Institute
    Ian McLellan, National Director of Recruitment and Selection, Educational Enterprises
    Ted Elliott, CEO, Jobscience
  • As organizations continue to battle for top talent, distinguishing your company from the competition has never been more crucial to attracting the best candidates. A strong employer brand enables companies to stand above the crowd, to source higher quality applicants, and ultimately, to drive business growth.

    The reality is that to be successful your employer brand and your talent acquisition strategy must be in lockstep. As such, organizations are increasingly looking to external experts, including RPO providers, to ensure this critical alignment of strategy and brand.

    Join us as we take a look at the current employer brand landscape, how a strong talent acquisition strategy impacts the brand, and the role providers are playing in the space.

    Speakers:
    Gary Bragar – HR Outsourcing Research Director, NelsonHall
    Mitzi Jordan – Global Practice Leader, Talent Acquisition Advisory, Futurestep

We asked 250 high potential UK-based working mothers to tell us about their lives inside and outside of work and specifically what employers need to do to support them to reach their full career potential. The results of Anna’s research are based on the concept of achieving a sustainable work-life blend.

    In this 45 minute webinar you will see previously unseen footage from our November 2014 Keeping Women In launch event – which was attended by 100 high achieving working mothers and influential business leaders. Our video footage shows Anna talking through the background of the research and our key findings.
