The Headhunter Inside Me!

2017 Talent Management Conference & Exposition
Workplace Application: This session will show you how to transform your low-functioning corporate recruitment department into a high-functioning in-house agency.

We live in a world of two types of recruiting: corporate and agency. What if we combined those two types of recruiting? Many talent acquisition leaders are completely happy and satisfied just posting and praying, but if you believe you have a headhunter inside of you then this session is for you! You will learn:

·         How you can take your own traditional recruitment department and build an in-house agency model.

·         Step by step, metric by metric, everything you will need to begin the process to transition to becoming the full functioning
           in-house agency that your executives do not believe you can become.

·         Strategies to help change the way corporate recruiting is done.
