Employment is Broken...if it had a Name it would be Sybil!

Employment is Broken...if it had a Name it would be Sybil!
April 19, 2012 at 1:30 - 2:30 PM ET
Kim Shepherd, CEO(Decision Toolbox Inc)
In case you haven’t heard, employment is broken. Like the tormented Sybil in the book and movie of the same name, the world of employment is currently exhibiting multiple personalities. We have a candidate rich environment, a talent drought, available jobs, high unemployment, and a communication revolution, to name a few, all playing out simultaneously.

At this point in history, the combined effects of downsizing,
unemployment, underemployment, off-shoring, outsourcing, technology, telecommuting, social media, increased competition, and good old fashioned denial have rendered the processes of recruiting, hiring, and retaining employees – as we’ve known them – highly confusing and ineffective, and it’s being felt on both sides of the fence.

If you’re a human resources professional or a hiring manager, your team has inevitably been cut in the last few years and you are being asked to do much more with much less. You are stretched and really don’t have the time needed for effective recruiting, interviewing, on-boarding and retention efforts. At the same time, the clock is moving at warp speed and competition for A-players is fiercer than ever.

In this presentation, Kim Shepherd explores employment’s “Seven Stages of Engagement” (Attraction, Selection, Interviewing, Hiring, On-boarding, Retention, and Development), discusses how each is currently broken, and offers creative, street smart tips for success in each critical stage of the employment process.

At the end of this session, participants will come away with readily applicable ideas to improve their recruitment processes and communications and to become viewed as an employer of choice among employment candidates and incumbents.
Who Should Participate
Human Resources and Talent Acquisition professionals, hiring managers, business owners.
What You Will Learn
1. Immediately implement street smart tips for improving recruitment strategies. 2. Confidently apply the most current modes of communication and social media to stand out as an employer of choice to employment candidates. 3. Upgrade existing or develop new on boarding processes to inspire employee engagement and improve retention.
