After All the Hype - What Really Matters?

An Interactive Workshop on Strategic Staffing, Recruitment and Job Search Strategy Potentials for the Next 10 Years.

Gerry Crispin, Principal, CAREERXROADS, will both facilitate and challenge ILRAA members and our guests in a highly interactive workshop.

Who should attend? Senior Human Resource Leaders, Talent Managers, Staffing and Recruiting Managers, Executive Search professionals who want to engage in a collaborative discussion about the future of our profession.

Please come prepared with ideas, challenges, myths and opinions about the "playing fields" where employers tout their latest opportunities and job seekers game the system. You will not have to turn your mobile phone off. 'Silent' mode is more than enough as long as you can create or follow #2020Recruit.

Gerry writes, researches and shares his adventures, opinions and data about evolving staffing models with the HR profession (and at small-group meetings of corporate staffing strategists that participate in CareerXroads' colloquia). He is passionate about how firms design and build staffing processes, the technology to enhance them and the systems to manage them. Together with his business partner, Mark Mehler, he strives to observe and influence new and evolving models that aspire to world-class, measurable standards and satisfy every stakeholder. Gerry is more than a little curious about how they treat one another and advocates creating a level of candidate experience far different than the one typically seen today. He's constantly on the lookout for stories about staffing challenges, benchmarks, and results as well as the people who live the stories they tell. A life-long student of staffing, Gerry has spent time meeting students and watching recruiters recruit in more than 20 countries during the last decade including Russia, Japan, China, India and Australia. He plans to research two countries during the next year where the Employers almost never pay..but the job seekers do.

You will not want to miss this program! Come prepared to contribute your experiences and share your views.
