When thinking about the most important person at a company, sometimes it feels like the engineers or CEOs get all the attention. But actually, the most under-the-radar superhero of the office is finally getting the props that they deserve: the recruiter. If people are the competitive differentiator for top companies, then recruiters are one hot commodity today.
But for recruiters, being good at the craft can make or break your value—making it critical to stay up on the latest practices, technologies, and strategies in the industry.
Jobvite’s Recruiter Nation Live is the year’s premier recruiting conference, featuring hundreds of speakers, vendors and attendees who will share insight on the industry as a whole. Recruiting is about so much more than just selling candidates on jobs and using salaries to woo the best of the best. Building a culture that people want to work for is just as important—and today’s job seekers have higher standards than ever. This year’s conference promises to keep you at the forefront of these recruiting trends.
We’re excited to feature two talented and insightful keynote speakers this year, Ann Curry and Abby Wambach. Curry, an acclaimed journalist and former Today Show host, will discuss building a diverse workplace and how recruiters can focus on seeing the skills, not the person. Wambach, U.S. soccer star and Olympic gold medalist, will tackle the equal pay conversation, where she’ll detail why not worrying about whether you’re hiring a man or a woman means looking at candidates objectively—without gender in the equation. We have a number of other amazing speakers this year, including best-selling author Tim Sanders, who will focus on: “The Essential Ingredient: Why Being a Good Option is a Losing Strategy.”
We’ll also hear from Jobvite CEO Dan Finnigan, who has been in the recruiting business for over two decades. He’ll reflect on his experience in the market and share his perspective on where the future of recruiting will take all of us.
Companies like Schneider Electric, CA Technologies, Trek Bicycles, Dollar Shave Club, Universal Music Group, Ingram Micro, and more will be sending some of their finest to share insights in our breakout sessions.
Tune in for sessions like these, which will cover the ins and outs of the recruiting funnel from top to bottom:
- “Proven Practices to a Robust Candidate Referral Program”
- “Psychology of Recruitment: Brain Hacking to Get Agreement”
- “Onboarding: Who Owns it? HR or Recruiting?”
- “Job Seeker Panel: Say Hello to Your Candidates”
- “Durable Diversity: Cultivating an Inclusive Workforce in a Conflicted World”
We’ve got a great lineup for you at Recruiter Nation Live this year, so don’t miss out on the essential insight, quality networking—and maybe even a performance by a certain CEO’s band. See you in San Francisco on Monday, June 5, 2017!
