It’s a well-established business axiom that “it’s better to be prepared than surprised.” It’s also important to be aware that in this increasingly volatile world of recruiting, under almost every likely upcoming scenario, the capabilities held by the type of recruiter that will thrive dramatic shifts and the number of total recruiters will likely decrease.
If you need to secure your future in recruiting, it’s important to be forward-looking and prepared. And part of that preparation includes being aware of positive opportunities like new technologies and AI/machine learning. Also being fully prepared for the negative recruiting impacts under the next economic downturn.
Fortunately, we are pleased that Dr. John Sullivan, who was called the Michael Jordan of hiring by Fast Company magazine, has agreed to lead us in an exciting and highly informative session. He will provide you with a “heads up” view of changes that are likely to occur throughout recruiting in as few as 18 months. Topics that will be covered include:
- Preparing for the next economic downturn – including what kind of recruiters will thrive. And with upcoming budget cuts, alternative jobs elsewhere in HR and the business.
- Preparing to shift to the Talent Advisor role – with less transactional work, the best recruiters will transition into the Talent Advisor role with expanded and more strategic responsibilities in talent planning, retention, and internal movement.
- Preparing for other significant changes in recruiting – including being aware or new technologies, new recruiting tools and mobile phone apps that will allow managers to recruit with less support from recruiters.
This highly interactive session will answer all your questions while making you aware of the range of upcoming possibilities.
