The Future of Recruiting is Open Source

Lars Schmidt / Founder / AmplifyTalent.com

We’re living in a golden age of recruiting. Technology has transformed the way recruiters work. The field has become specialized, with new disciplines that didn't exist five years ago. Recruiting is now creative, data-driven, and analytical like never before. The challenge for most recruiters? How to keep up and ensure your skill set keeps pace with these changes. This session will examine some of the new “open source” approaches to learning and innovation in the field that are designed to help equip recruiting leaders to future-proof their careers, and their organizations.

Recruiting Diversity: Women and Military (Grand Ballroom)

Marcelle Yeager / CEO / Serving Talent

Companies today want to hire a diverse staff, which includes increasing the number of women and veterans in the workplace. While many employers have the right intentions, their approach to hiring veterans and military spouses is not always appropriately framed. Many spouses continue to try to hide their family’s military service for fear of losing consideration for a job, while others find themselves unable to effectively explain their gaps in work history. As a result, companies are often unaware of the person's status and unable to ask due to compliance issues, and candidates may be screened out based on their gaps in work history. The solution to this is education and awareness building. In order to tell the person's story effectively within your organization, you must engage with the candidate to learn and promote what they have to offer. By doing this, you will reach diversity recruiting goals for yourself and your team.

Now that LinkedIn has leveled the playing field, how are you distinguishing your results and demonstrating Staffing Subject Matter Expertise? In this session, identify, contact and compel candidates for any function, from individual contributors to senior management with empowering sourcing best practices/case studies.

Referral Programs: We Can Do So Much Better (White Oak A)

Alan Henshaw / Senior Recruiter / Amazon Web Services

Referral programs in most orgs are very outdated and not made a focal point. Considering how many hires most organizations get are from referrals, we can really supercharge these programs by thinking outside the box. Thinking about what really drives human behavior to go out of their way to refer someone for a role.

Track: Management & Strategy
