Working With Your C-Suite: How To Elevate Your Game and Turn Up the Volume on Your Talent Leader Voice
Are you having trouble getting resources for your department? Do you feel that your C-suite just gives "lip service" and doesn't take TA seriously as a partner? Do you feel under appreciated as a leader? Are you even on your C-suite's radar as a solution to giving back to the organization’s bottom line?

In this energetic session, Jesse and Tony will:

  • Share straight-shooting advice for working more effectively with your senior leadership team
  • Challenge you to dig deep on how you show up as a business leader. 
  • Give practical, real-world examples of how to speak the language of the C-suite -- including "presenting data that matters" 
  • Openly discuss when it's time to move on and take your talents elsewhere

Attendees will be encouraged to have a "take" and share their own stories, as long as they're brief and powerful!

Transforming the Recruiting Process through Lego Serious Play
A small group, interactive workshop that’ll take participants back to the innocent, boundary-free play of childhood, with the freedom to share their views, likes, and dislikes about the way the recruiting process works.

The session will use visual, auditory, and kinesthetic skills to discover how to re-invent your brand to become more attractive to potential candidates while developing and discussing techniques that will allow participants to take back to their companies a better understanding of who a prime candidate is, what they want and how to put them into a position to succeed. 

By building landscape models with LEGO® bricks, it attributes meaning through story making, and plays out various possible scenarios -- a process which deepens understanding, sharpens insight, and socially “bonds” together the group as it “plays” together. The LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY™ methodology will guide participants into a free and honest exchange of opinion on how to transform the recruiting process so as to attract the ideal candidates from the next generation of employees.

Who should attend?

Anyone from recruiters to TA leaders will benefit from this workshop.

What to Expect

Expect a deeply hands-on work session. 

What are the takeaways?

After this workshop you will walk away with insights on:

  • Discovering who your ideal candidate is
  • Determining what hinders your success now
  • Figuring out the things that inspire candidates
  • Determining what attracts them, motivates them
  • Finding content that will attract & engage candidates

In this session, learn more about the specific areas of the process that are being automated and where there is room to increase efficiencies.

How to Leverage the Connection Between Your Corporate Culture and Employer Brand to Attract and Retain Talent

“Your company's culture and your company's brand are really just two sides of the same coin." said Tony Hsieh, the CEO of Zappos. But this isn’t just the case for your consumer brand, there’s even more alignment between your company culture and your employer brand. In fact, you could argue that your employer brand is essentially just the external expression of your company culture. The strong connection between these two elements creates a real opportunity for HR generalists and those in talent acquisition.

In this session, we’ll help you understand the interplay between your corporate culture and your branding efforts. We will show you how to not only improve your company culture but how to harness it to create an effective employer branding strategy. In addition, we’ll showcase some employer branding best practices and highlight examples of companies that have successfully taken advantage of the intersection between branding and culture.

A Dash of Data and a Pinch of Creativity Can Make You More Powerful and Valuable
Patrick Wicks, of 117,000-employee Johnson Controls, talks about a conundrum recruiters of all company sizes have faced: the business’s expectations are a bit divorced from reality.

Wicks found that the business wanted local candidates, and had no budget for relocation … and as a result experienced four-month times to fill. He’ll tell you how he got creative, and used data to frame the case that the business would either have to reduce their expectations on the candidates or free up some budget to import talent.

The end results is a better relationship with the business, and much lower fill times.

Talent Pipelining: Navigating the Journeys of Top Talent

The most talented professionals are almost always already employed. Passive candidates such as these can be difficult to reach - often they are reasonably comfortable where they are and haven’t  seriously considered moving. But finding that diamond in the rough becomes easier with the right technology..

If you could create a map of the top candidates in your field, how would that change your approach? If you knew their career journeys to date, what insights would you gain? Mapping your talent pipeline offers solutions for recruiters seeking the ideal candidate, but it also allows recruiters to geographically map available skills for broader sourcing. In this session we will discuss the benefits of mapping your candidate pipeline - and how you can incorporate it into your business.

Skynet has come back to life.  And it will control everything, everywhere.  OK, maybe that’s a bit too dramatic but we’re not that far off.  A recent Gartner report predicts that in 3-5 years billions of things will have a digital twin.  From bicycles and their riders, to shoes and the feet that wear them, data-driven software models of physical things or systems will begin to deliver services that were once performed by humans.  

Why should you care? Because they are here to replace Recruiters as well.

The Most Unfair Thing Talent Acquisition Can Do is Treat All Roles Equally
Treating all roles equally is the most unfair thing Talent Acquisition can do because, while all roles are important in an organization (or else the headcount wouldn’t exist), not all roles are critical to building business value. In our knowledge economy, 80% of future business value is created by 20% of roles within a given company.

It’s time for TA to understand and embrace this fact – and adjust the way in which they attract, source and select candidates accordingly.

Handling reqs like milk (first in, first out) – or adjusting priority based on the hiring manager who screams the loudest – drives poor outcomes since some job receive more investment than they truly require, while others receive not enough.

What do ‘poor outcomes’ look like? Extended vacancy times, candidate drop-offs, higher attrition and poor performing new hires.

What to Expect


This will be a high energy, engaging session, in which participants will understand the drivers behind the shift from an industrial to a knowledge economy – and specifically, the implications for talent acquisition.

  • It will provide a framework for building a differentiated talent strategy that will allow TA to compete for – and win – top talent in the right roles
  • Participants will learn how to discuss radically changing the typical, outdated approach to hiring with senior leaders in order to win support for adding measurable value to their business. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn how Talent Acquisition can speak to the bottom line impacts of their recruiting efforts. 
  • Understand what it means to treat roles unequally and how to identify the most critical roles. 
  • Learn how to develop an effective talent acquisition strategy based on this differentiated approach.

CONTINUED: Transforming the Recruiting Process through Lego Serious Play
A small group, interactive workshop that’ll take participants back to the innocent, boundary-free play of childhood, with the freedom to share their views, likes, and dislikes about the way the recruiting process works. The session will use visual, auditory, and kinesthetic skills to discover how to re-invent your brand to become more attractive to potential candidates while developing and discussing techniques that will allow participants to take back to their companies a better understanding of who a prime candidate is, what they want and how to put them into a position to succeed. By building landscape models with LEGO® bricks, it attributes meaning through story making, and plays out various possible scenarios -- a process which deepens understanding, sharpens insight, and socially “bonds” together the group as it “plays” together. The LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY™ methodology will guide participants into a free and honest exchange of opinion on how to transform the recruiting process so as to attract the ideal candidates from the next generation of employees.

After this workshop you will walk away with insights on:

  • Discovering who your ideal candidate is
  • Determining what hinders your success now
  • Figuring out the things that inspire candidates
  • Determining what attracts them, motivates them
  • Finding content that will attract & engage candidates

 

Expect a deeply hands-on work session. Space is Limited. First come, first served, so arrive early please.

Reimagining Talent Acquisition: How Cisco is Using Technology to Redefine the Talent Experience
The way people want to work is changing.

They’re socially connected, mobile, and expect the same “on demand” access they have in their personal life at work. Most HR departments and TA functions aren’t equipped to handle that – Cisco’s certainly wasn’t.  But HR teams have to adapt in order to attract and retain the workforce of tomorrow.  And many of them have to do it within the reality of a shrinking HR budget.

What to expect

Kevin Blair from Cisco will share how Cisco was able to reimagine and rebuild its approach to Talent Acquisition by shifting from simply filling requisitions to taking a strategic and high touch direction.

Be sure to attend this session and learn the changes that took place, the lessons learned, and the outcome of the new approach at Cisco.

Who should attend

TA leaders and managers who want to change and adopt to the new way people want to work.

The rapid growth of social media, the complexity, integration and newly emerging technologies in HR as well as the constant pressures for increasing quality, efficiency and productivity in hiring practices all converge at the TA leader's feet in the shape of their budget.

Defending their current costs, establishing their function's contribution to the business and getting approvals for that next investment to stay competitive are all dependent on an employer's willingness to pay what it takes.

Hello Talent Acquisition … Meet Marketing!
"So many times in HR and talent acquisition we want to “blame marketing” for not listening … for not doing the right branding campaign based on the talent we need. We know … they know … our leaders say it out loud … that our company’s success these days solely rests on the talent hired, specifically, the war on “digital” talent.

Have we ever thought what it would be like if we stepped back and asked ourselves… “are we helping marketing?” Are we making it hard or easy on them? Are we proving the fact that they can help us, and the full company, with this effort? Learn what GE’s Shaunda Zilich learned when “Owen” and “Sarah” met mainstream marketing and how its corporate marketing teams came to the talent department to really dig in and do this right. "

Reduce Unconscious Bias to Dramatically Improve Hiring Results Across All Candidates
It has become quite common for leading firms to proactively identify and reduce unconscious biases in order to increase diversity. However, few recruiters realize that how interviews and other segments of the hiring process are conducted directly impacts the quality of hire across all candidates. Yes, it turns out that the same unconscious biases that limit the hiring of diverse candidates can also, unfortunately, screen out many highly desirable innovators, strategic thinkers, and techies.

If you want to improve the accuracy of your screening, and yes, your overall hiring results, it’s time to update your tools to include a technology and data-driven approach to screening. 

This highly interactive session will be presented by longtime ERE author Dr. John Sullivan.

Key takeaways will include:   

  • How data has revealed where unconscious biases occur       
  • How technology advances can immediately improve your quality of hire      
  • Simple tips to improve the accuracy and reduce the bias of resume screening      
  • Advice that recruiters can give to their hiring managers on how to improve their interviewing results
