      Jona Youdeem, Product Marketing Manager, Indeed Resume, Indeed
      Over the past year, our industry learned how to transform – both ourselves and the way our companies hire. We have a renewed focus on “becoming digital” or “reorganizing for growth” that allowed us to invest in new, strategic ways to find and hire the best talent, efficiently. In 2021, it’s time to double down what has been learned and advance the momentum toward better hiring outcomes. In this session, you’ll learn everything Indeed Resume is developing to enable recruiters to extend sourcing success beyond outreach.

      Understanding Psychological Safety at Work
      Rajkumari Neogy, Founder, iRestart
      Paul Wolfe, Senior Vice President, Global Human Resources, Indeed

      What is psychological safety, and why do we need it in the workplace? Psychological safety occurs when team members feel safe to take risks and be vulnerable in front of each other—which, in turn, helps them connect. It’s what creates high-performing, inclusive teams, where members learn and grow together, push back against the status quo and innovate. But all too often, distrust, stress and burnout run rampant in organizations, stifling creativity, innovation and employee well-being.


      In this session, epigenetic and executive coach Rajkumari Neogy will share the fascinating science behind psychological safety and how it helps teams communicate and collaborate more effectively. She’ll be joined in the second part of her session by Paul Wolfe, Indeed’s SVP of HR, for a fireside chat on how HR leaders can put these principles into practice.

    • Indeed Solutions
      Indeed Ads Unified Campaigns
      Tiffany Holbrook, Product Marketing Manager, Indeed

      Capturing the attention of candidates is no easy task when there is so much fragmentation in the media landscape. To compete for talent, you have to reach talent in their most important moments, in the right place, with a compelling message that makes them want to consider your company. But many recruitment marketing solutions are based on a “spray and pray” model that advertises your jobs anywhere and everywhere to everyone with the hope that people will notice your job and apply. Additionally, with over 40K job boards globally, TA teams invest countless hours and dollars managing disconnected platforms for hundreds or thousands of open roles. When there is so much fragmentation, matching the right people to the right jobs is hard and time consuming, taking away from a TA team’s ability to focus on providing a positive candidate experience.


      The key is programmatic advertising built for TA that automates displaying the right jobs, in the right places, to the right candidates to ensure applications for all your jobs.


      In this session, Tiffany Holbrook, Product Marketing Manager, will give insights into Indeed’s plan to launch a new unified campaign experience that simplifies the planning and executing of a multichannel recruitment marketing strategy so you can reach active and passive talent — on and off Indeed — from an all in one platform.


      Who Should Attend:

      • HR and Talent Attraction executives and leaders seeking to formulate recruitment marketing strategies that enable their organization to compete for talent
      • Talent Acquisition practitioners and recruiters responsible for managing full-funnel job advertising campaigns on Indeed.

      Danny Stacy, Senior Recruitment Evangelist, Indeed
      Karen Catlin, Author of "Better Allies"

      Allyship (noun): the state or condition of being an ally: supportive association with another person or group.


      While Webster’s definition is short and straightforward, the process of becoming an ally—and practicing good allyship in the workplace—is far more nuanced and complex. Join Karen Catlin, author of Better Allies, and Danny Stacy, Senior Recruitment Evangelist at Indeed, for a fireside chat about allyship in action. From mistakes and self-examination to speaking up and supporting others, they’ll explore this topic within the framework of concrete examples, building toward making allyship part of your company culture. You’ll leave with a better understanding of what allyship means in the workplace and why it matters for your talent attraction strategy in 2021 and beyond.

      Brand-Culture Fusion: How to integrate the elements that power business success
      Denise Lee Yohn, Brand Leadership Expert and Author
      Jennifer Warren, VP, Global Brand Marketing and Communications, Indeed

      In nuclear physics, fusion is the reaction that happens when two atomic nuclei come together. Nuclear fusion releases large amounts of energy — it’s what powers the sun. In the same way, you can unleash great power when you fuse together your internal organizational culture and external brand identity. When you create an interdependent and mutually reinforcing relationship between how your organization thinks and acts on the inside and how it is perceived and experienced on the outside, you can reach new heights of employee engagement and business success.

      Practically overnight, the pandemic pushed what had once seemed unfeasible into reality — moving a company’s entire workforce to working from home, for example — and accelerated adoption of new hiring tech as employers adapted to the demands and challenges of their transformed recruiting landscape.


      But just as the pandemic advanced technology, it also exposed and exacerbated inequities related to age, race, gender and other factors. In this session, leaders from AARP, Disney and CommonSpirit Health share strategies for how employers can ensure their re-imagined hiring practices remain inclusive for all.


      Who Should Attend:

      • TA leaders and practitioners whose teams are recruiting and interviewing virtually
      • Decision makers at organizations where diversity, inclusion and belonging are top hiring priorities
      • Anyone interested in learning more about the effect of new technology on hiring


      Walk Away With:

      • Actionable strategies for more inclusive hiring in an increasingly virtual world
      • Ideas for preventing biases related to age, race, gender, socioeconomic status, physical abilities and other factors
      • Strategies for reaching a greater group of quality candidates

      Embracing Neurodiversity: How to unleash your workforce and company potential
      Shawn Brown, Engineer, Designer and YouTuber
      Scott Bonneau, Vice President, Global Talent Acquisition, Indeed

      What is neurodiversity? Coined in the late 1990s by sociologist Judy Singer, the term recognizes that individual differences in brain function are part of normal variation in humans, and are “a state of nature to be respected … an argument for the conservation and facilitation of human diversity.”


      As an engineer, designer and co-founder of the YouTube channel “Kids Invent Stuff,” Shawn Brown has spent his life working on a wide range of unusual contraptions—from kid-designed electric vehicles, to the world’s first sneeze-activated flamethrower. As a neurodivergent individual with dyslexia, Brown is a tireless advocate for raising awareness of learning differences and building public understanding and support.


      Join Shawn to discuss the impact of neurodiversity on innovation, the role of creativity in hands-on learning and why embracing neurodivergent candidates can deliver a competitive advantage to employers. For the second half of this session, Shawn will be joined by Indeed’s Vice President of Talent Acquisition, Scott Bonneau, for a fireside chat about attracting, integrating and supporting this pool of talent.


      Who Should Attend:

      • Talent professionals interested in attracting, developing and retaining more neurodivergent candidates
      • HR leaders who oversee diversity, inclusion and belonging initiatives


      Walk Away With:

      • A better understanding of neurodiversity and its impact on innovation
      • Techniques for supporting neurodivergent candidates and employees
