Leveraging Unique Talent Pools for Hard-to-Fill Positions
Everyone knows the critical role of finding the right talent for your organization. Increasingly, this task is becoming more challenging, with pressures from the competitive market, both for- and not-for-profit. Tried and true ways of recruiting candidates are less effective than in the past and organizations must look to new methods – and new talent pools – to gain a competitive advantage. This session brings together professionals representing four distinct groups of potential employees to discuss how to tap into non-traditional networks to access talent that can help move your mission forward.
This session is co-facilitated by Erick Allen, Shannon Kissinger and Dawn Mastoridis.
