Traditionally, companies have often handled talent acquisition by reaching out to large numbers of candidates and sifting them through the largest funnel possible in the hopes of identifying a few top choices. Unfortunately, the process is cumbersome, and it does not always yield quality candidates. Thanks to advances in technology, including social networking applications and innovations in technology, companies have new options for breaking out of this funnel mentality.
In this presentation, talent strategy expert Ed Newman of The Newman Group joins Kristen Hill of Premera Blue Cross. They will share insight on an approach that is transforming the way companies engage quality candidates. We will learn about strategies for better understanding available talent; building networks; measuring, managing and improving those networks; and creating a culture that is focused on delivering known, high-quality candidates. We will share in the experience of Premera's talent network program, a pilot initiative that has received rave reviews from participating hiring managers; and we will learn about innovations and technologies that are helping to shape the future of talent acquisition.
This promises to be an engaging and information-packed session, and we hope you can join us.
