Optimizing the Hiring Lifecycle
from Sourcing to Onboarding

Over half of global CEOs expect to add headcount in the next year, yet their concerns about the availability of key skills are at an eight-year high, according to PwC’s 2015 Global CEO Survey.

To meet business growth, talent acquisition strategy must continue to expand beyond a tactical, reactive function to a proactive, streamlined approached. Doing so will enable them to source, assess, select, hire, and onboard the best candidates in this competitive environment.

In this year’s Strategic Talent Acquisition conference, our in-house experts will share how they created the best frameworks, teams, and practices to compress the hiring cycle, improve outcomes and deliver high performing employees. Topics to be addressed include how to revolutionize the talent acquisition function, ways to create a candidate-focused talent acquisition strategy, and how to elevate the interviewing, selection and onboarding processes.
