  • #HRTech: Recruiting vs. Talent Acquisition - The rising of AI Recorded: Oct 23 2018 51 mins
    Jerry Grammont
    This presentation will demonstrate how to avoid common startup hiring mistakes within organizational talent and recruiting strategies.

    Jerry will focus on how AI is facilitating #HRTech in talent acquisition and participants will learn what the key recruitment models that can be utilized.

    About Jerry Grammont:
    Pepsi, MTV, Hennessy, Bic, Toyota… these are just a few of the major companies Jerry has worked with; even to the extent of building and leading teams for their digital projects. For well over 10 years, he has excelled in the unique cross-section of marketing, design, and human resources all wrapped in technology. After moving on from these high-scale opportunities, Jerry went on to cofound Let’s Order Now, a food ordering service with a strong social direction. It was here where he further made use of his wide range of skills to get the startup off the ground and scaling. However, he was not able to truly build the perfect team, and so had to witness its end. After realizing once again the importance of a great team, Jerry and his wife founded EmployToy, with the purpose of helping others find great talent and build great teams.
  • How Quantifying Values & Culture Can Promote Diversity & Inclusion Recorded: Oct 17 2018 49 mins
    Erin Michelson, CEO / Tech Entrepreneur / Author
    We provide an introduction into how to leverage behavioural science to better understand not only the corporation’s stated values but also the lived values of employees. By assessing institutional and individuals values, we can ascribe a numeric “score” that measures the cultural alignment (and misalignment) within the workplace. As a result, HR professionals gain a tool for unbiased, values-based recruiting, as well as the data intelligence they need to retain a culturally-rich workforce.

    Learn how quantifying individual values and corporate culture can benefit:
    * HR Executives: Increasing employee engagement, retention & workgroup productivity
    * Hiring Managers: Maximizing the pool of diverse candidates and positioning the company as a social impact leader
    * Applicants & Employees: Delivering a personal understanding of cultural fit & opportunities for advancement

    Erin Michelson is Founder & CEO of Summery (www.summery.ai), a data analytics company that leverages behavioural science to quantify institutional culture and individual social impact values. Recognized as a pioneer in the #PhilTech space, Erin has been profiled in @Entrepreneur, @BBCTech, @HuffPost, @NatGeoTravel, @FoxNews, and @NPR.
