Creating and Delivering on the ROI of Talent Acquisition and Selection at the NCHRA Talent Acquisition and Selection Conference, Thursday, July 30th at Park 55 Wyndham, San Francisco Union Square, 55 Cyril Magnin Street.  8:00-4:30. My seminar is from 1:45 PM to 3:00 PM.

  • Talent acquisition and selection works best when management understands that everyone is a recruiter, their role in the process, and the ROI of getting it right.
  • Discover techniques for successfully attracting and selecting candidates, and learn how to analyze key workforce and business indicators to build a proposal and win over reluctant management.
  • You’ll leave the session with a completed blueprint for upgrading or implementing your own talent acquisition and selection process.
