About The Event

The Talent Process

Talent for your organization is critical no matter the size of your company and the cost of a misfire for a small to medium organization can be even more expensive. This session will cover the important part of the talent process starting with attracting, finding, and hiring the right person for your organization. You will be exposed to the critical pre-work to have in place before you even pick up the phone to call the recruiter, hiring agency, or candidate. You will also be clearer on how to evaluate and determine the right candidate for your company’s culture, and how to get them onboarded, and up to speed, for optimal success.

The session will also encourage active dialogue so that all in attendance benefit from listening to current state challenges and opportunities related to attracting and onboarding talent, plus training initiatives.

Key Takeaways from this Session:
1. What a robust assessment process to determine best fit can look like
2. Best practices for onboarding new employees
3. Getting a jumpstart on talent development
