HR thought-leader John Sullivan states: strategic recruiting is an approach to winning the best talent based on three components: employer branding, recruitment-directed marketing, and skilled selling. Combined, these components create effective responses to dynamic market conditions in support of an organization’s strategic objectives. During this webinar, we’ll outline nine guidelines to consider in developing or enhancing your recruiting strategy.

Don’t Be Cheap
Listen Now

6 in 10 companies expect to boost wages this year. How about you? Too many busy employers develop their compensation policies, then put them on a shelf and forget about them. You can’t afford to do that in this competitive talent market. If you don’t regularly review and compare what you offer, you won’t know where you stand – and it could be costly to wait for the market to tell you.

When you make pay equity a priority, you’ll see engagement levels rise by 13% and productivity levels increase by 19%, on average. Register today for our next Monthly Talent & Culture Briefing, and you’ll gain insight on compensation trends, including 3 ways your pay policies may cause employee turnover.

A Case Study in Corporate Culture
Guest: Vincent Arnette, The CFO Center
Listen Now

At TalenTrust, we advise executives that they must first cultivate an intentional culture before they can expect to attract and retain top talent. Most executives agree that corporate culture influences productivity, creativity, profitability, firm value and growth rates. While 86% of business leaders rate “culture” as one of the most urgent issues, only 15% say their own corporate culture is exactly where it needs to be. Join us for a case study on corporate culture, presented by Vincent Arnette of The CFO Center. He’ll outline how and why his firm has worked to develop a culture by design, vs a culture by default.

Focus on Retention Over Recruiting
Listen Now

Talent management has become much like trying to fill a bucket with a hole in it. More than 70 percent of small- to medium-sized businesses plan to add headcount this year. While you’re out there competing for new hires, 3 in 4 of your existing employees are either open to or actively pursuing new job opportunities. To overcome these dual challenges, smart employers are developing new strategies to find and keep their top people. Business leaders are shifting priorities to focus on retention and internal hiring. Join us to hear more about how to develop and execute on these critical talent management strategies.

The Value of Strategic HR
Listen Now

Strategic talent decisions are pivotal to sustainable success. After years of hearing author Jim Collins tell us that you have to “get the right people on the bus,” companies are recognizing that HR strategies are what attract and retain the right people. Historically, HR has been relegated to the back room. Increasingly, HR leaders are assuming more strategic roles at the side of CEOs and on boards—and it’s paying off. Join us to hear more about the evolving and more strategic role of HR, including what it looks like and why it’s important.

Culture is Cornerstone
Listen Now

Culture is like air – it’s everywhere yet invisible. When harnessed correctly, corporate culture can turn into a tailwind of progress instead of a headwind of obstruction. How effective is your corporate culture? What can you do to enhance it and leverage it, to recruit and retain top talent? We’ll offer insight from our 2018 Hiring Guide and focus on cultural elements for every workplace generation—Millennials and beyond.
