    The speed of work, driven by technology, is causing a dramatic shift in how we work, and it requires a dramatic shift in how we hire.  In order to successfully attract the right people at the right time, companies must have a strong, engaged, pipeline of available talent.

    This session will focus on key parameters for building and maintaining a valuable pipeline of talent.

    • Evaluate current resources for talent management and determine if they attract or repel talent to your organization.
    • Know your culture and hire to your culture.  The hiring process is a key part of defining company culture.
    • Provide real time feedback and development opportunities.   
    • Define project driven work processes vs. job descriptions.
    • Focus on talent engagement vs. talent acquisition – have a system that builds relationships internally and externally. 
    • Use technology the right way to streamline the hiring process and build and maintain a valuable pipeline of talent.
