Decisions, Decisions: The Art and Science Behind Becoming Top Talent’s Top Choice

The job search is comprised of a series of decisions. Among other decisions job seekers make during this process, they must choose to: look for a new role or career (or respond to a recruiter’s outreach); apply to a particular position; commit to the interview process and accept (or decline) an offer. Salary, benefits, growth potential and employer brand all play a role in shaping those choices. But what are the less-obvious factors that influence a job seeker’s thinking during this most significant of “purchase” decisions—to invest time in a potential new job or career?

In this session, Sheena Iyengar—renowned Columbia Business School professor and author of the seminal work The Art of Choosing—breaks down the art and science behind the decision-making process, so that when candidates are considering your organization you have the insight and strategies on hand to ensure they choose you.

Creating a Thriving Workplace Through Career Roadmapping

In today’s tight job market, employees can easily find a new job if their current role doesn’t meet their needs or expectations.

Companies that are dedicated to the growth of their current employees not only retain talent, but are more attractive to prospective employees.

Accelerating the Transformative Power of Talent Attraction and HR

Perception: Business leaders sometimes consider talent acquisition a necessary expense—and not a strategic revenue driver. Reality: Employers that excel in talent acquisition achieve 3.5 times more revenue growth and twice the profit margins compared to organizations that don’t excel at recruiting, according to the Society for Human Resource Management.

Given this all-too-frequent disconnect, how can talent professionals more effectively communicate the importance of their work to top executives? Is it about building relationships with executive sponsors? Providing more meaningful ROI data on the impact of recruiting? Developing stronger relationships across teams, so others can better see the positive impact of successful recruiting? Discover how talent experts on this panel have demonstrated the impact of their work—and broadened the influence of the entire HR function.

 

Who Should Attend:

  • Recruiters and managers eager to prove the value of their day-to-day efforts to their departmental leaders
  • Talent executives seeking to demonstrate the positive impact their function has on the business
  • Talent acquisition professionals who have successfully proven their value and are willing to share their experiences

Walk Away With:

  • Guidance for effectively conveying the value of talent acquisition and elevating your influence with leadership
  • Confidence to lead conversations with company leaders to prove that HR is much more than a service provider
  • A renewed sense of inspiration and appreciation for your impact on the success of your company
  • A better understanding of how talent leaders can partner with non-talent leaders to deliver on company goals

Drawing Tech Talent to You: Debunking myths about this in-demand workforce

The statement, “Today’s top talent has infinite options when it comes to employment,” is perhaps truest when talking about tech talent. As companies outside of the traditional tech industry continue to open roles for developers, engineers and other tech-inclined minds, the demand is high, the supply is low and the competition is fierce. In such an environment, what should an employer to do stand out and, in turn, be found by the candidates they seek?

In this session, Daniel Wahlen—Senior Manager of Employer Insights in Germany—draws on data to challenge common assumptions about how tech talent searches and what they are looking for in their next opportunity. With a better understanding of their search behavior and what drives their decision-making during the hiring process, he contends, you will be better equipped to position yourself as an attractive destination for the tech talent you need.

 

Who Should Attend:

  • Recruiting professionals looking to fill open technology roles
  • Talent leaders eager to optimize their companies’ tech talent attraction strategy

Walk Away With:

  • Data-driven insights into the needs and wants of today’s tech talent
  • Tools and strategies for combating the tech talent shortage

The Emotionally Intelligent Talent Professional: Optimizing your workplace relationships

Business thought leaders like Whole Foods CEO John Mackey have long asserted that emotional intelligence—the ability to accurately identify (and manage) one’s emotions as they occur—is more important than cognitive intelligence.

By understanding the cause and effect of emotional triggers, you’ll be able to better empathize with others—ultimately improving communication with candidates, hiring managers and colleagues.

 

Who Should Attend:

  • Talent leaders wishing to improve their leadership abilities through emotion management, identification of values and better communication
  • Recruiting professionals interested in developing better communication with and understanding of hiring managers and candidates
  • Anyone wishing to develop their emotional intelligence and apply it to day-to-day workplace interactions

  • The ability to identify the values that guide your workplace interactions, as well as when and how those values are triggered

Defining and Communicating Your Personal Brand

The concept of personal branding may seem like a catchphrase being thrown around by authors and self-help gurus; however, the concept isn’t new.

You already have a personal brand—whether you know it or not. Your personal brand is more than your reputation. It’s a value proposition that helps companies evaluate whether or not to recruit, hire, develop and retain you—and also whether or not people want to work with you, or at your company. Your personal brand is an important aspect of your career, and impacts everything from future career aspirations to your existing compensation opportunities. Once you understand what drives you, as well as the qualities and skill sets that are unique to you, you can effectively manage your brand and communicate your best attributes to the constituencies that matter.

 

Who Should Attend:

  • Young and mid-level professionals who want to understand how to define their expertise and position themselves for the career opportunities that they desire
  • Senior leaders who see the value in defining and communicating their personal brand effectively as a way to attract talent to their organizations and get themselves noticed for opportunities

Walk Away With:

  • Understand what is included in your personal brand, what isn’t and why it matters
  • Discover how personal branding relates to managing and growing your career
  • Create your own personal brand statement, and understand how to use it
  • Incorporate your “whole self” into your personal brand to create personal and professional opportunities
  • Develop an Action Plan for effectively communicating and promoting your personal brand

Whose Job is it Anyway?: Solving the onboarding enigma

Attracting and obtaining great talent begins with providing a great candidate experience. Recruiters work relentlessly to cultivate strong relationships during the hiring process, and as an organization you’re developing and refining your overarching recruitment strategy to ensure it’s high touch and personalized to each candidate. However, once you find and hire your ideal applicant, how can you build on this momentum and transform a great candidate to an engaged employee?

The answer is onboarding, and when implemented thoughtfully and strategically, it can have a direct impact on retention, as well as shaping your future candidate pipeline. But onboarding is often an overlooked step in the recruitment process, which poses yet another complicated and complex question: Who is ultimately responsible for owning onboarding—creating an impactful program that not only sets your new hire up for success, but has them feeling confident they made the right decision?

 

In this session, led by Recruitment Evangelist Erica Pepe, you’ll discover research-backed strategies to make a lasting impression on new hires. Leverage these strategies to design your most powerful retention and recruitment tool yet—the onboarding process.

 

Who Should Attend:

  • Recruiters, hiring managers and HR professionals eager to work cross-functionally to transform new hires into long-term employees through an exceptional onboarding program

Creating a Thriving Workplace Through Career Roadmapping

In today’s tight job market, employees can easily find a new job if their current role doesn’t meet their needs or expectations.

Companies that are dedicated to the growth of their current employees not only retain talent, but are more attractive to prospective employees.

Anchors Aweigh!: Eliminating the barriers between you and great talent

Anchoring is a type of cognitive bias in which we rely too much on an initial piece of information or a particular requirement—i.e. the anchor—when making a decision. As recruiters, it’s easy to unconsciously indulge in this anchoring behavior throughout the hiring process. A keyword we’re looking for on resumes. Specific industry experience. Salary bands. They’re all anchors that can weigh us down when hiring candidates and cause us to potentially overlook, disregard or discount great talent within our reach.

But anchoring affects job seekers, too. In this session, Recruitment Evangelist Jay Munro will help you understand how and why we all form anchors. He’ll also guide you through the hiring process from the the candidate’s perspective, encouraging you to discover and eliminate biases that could be preventing you from hiring great talent—or them from choosing you.

 

Who Should Attend:

Your Brand, Your Promise

Everything a business does comes with a promise, whether spoken or unspoken. To paraphrase Silicon Valley venture capitalist, philanthropist and author Freada Kapor Klein, a company that doesn’t live up to the promises it makes faces serious repercussions from customers, employees, partners—and job candidates.

At a time when authenticity is key and the talent market is hotly competitive, broken promises can damage your employer brand, making it more difficult to get top candidates to join your company. Join Carmen Bryant, Director of Marketing, US at Indeed, for a deep-dive into the promises your organization makes to its employees, candidates and consumers, and how these promises aren’t always mutually exclusive.

Anchors Aweigh!: Eliminating the barriers between you and great talent

Anchoring is a type of cognitive bias in which we rely too much on an initial piece of information or a particular requirement—i.e. the anchor—when making a decision. As recruiters, it’s easy to unconsciously indulge in this anchoring behavior throughout the hiring process. A keyword we’re looking for on resumes. Specific industry experience. Salary bands. They’re all anchors that can weigh us down when hiring candidates and cause us to potentially overlook, disregard or discount great talent within our reach.

But anchoring affects job seekers, too. In this session, Recruitment Evangelist Jay Munro will help you understand how and why we all form anchors. He’ll also guide you through the hiring process from the the candidate’s perspective, encouraging you to discover and eliminate biases that could be preventing you from hiring great talent—or them from choosing you.

 

Who Should Attend:

  • Talent acquisition professionals and employer brand professionals interested in the data behind behavioral science
  • Recruitment and HR specialists who wish to optimize their candidate search by learning more about the human decision-making process

Walk Away With:

  • Research from the world’s leading experts in behavioral science that explores the concept anchoring and how it works
  • How to identify—and remove—anchors that commonly exist in the recruiting process
  • Tips to prevent anchors from impacting how you find, attract and hire talent

When a “Small World” Gets Bigger: The dynamics of establishing a global TA operation

“There’s so much that we share that it’s time we’re aware…”—pause—is it really such a small world after all?

Drawing Tech Talent to You: Debunking Myths About This In-Demand Workforce

The statement, “Today’s top talent has infinite options when it comes to employment,” is perhaps truest when talking about tech talent. As companies outside of the traditional tech industry continue to open roles for developers, engineers and other tech-inclined minds, the demand is high, the supply is low and the competition is fierce. In such an environment, what should an employer to do stand out and, in turn, be found by the candidates they seek?

In this session, Daniel Wahlen—Senior Manager of Employer Insights in Germany—draws on data to challenge common assumptions about how tech talent searches and what they are looking for in their next opportunity. With a better understanding of their search behavior and what drives their decision-making during the hiring process, he contends, you will be better equipped to position yourself as an attractive destination for the tech talent you need.

 

Who Should Attend:

  • Recruiting professionals looking to fill open technology roles
  • Talent leaders eager to optimize their companies’ tech talent attraction strategy

  • Data-driven insights into the needs and wants of today’s tech talent
