TEARING DOWN THE MYTH OF COMPLICATED SOURCING

LAURA STOKER // AIRS

The amount of user-generated content available on the web today continues to amass at an unprecedented rate. Navigating that information to locate great candidates can be challenging even for experienced sourcers and recruiters. However, in this day of readily available “people info” on the web, it doesn’t require smoke and mirrors and fancy “hacks” to find great candidates, it just takes some smarts and a little bit of tenacity.

Figuring out the path of least resistance will be the focus of this session.  It will cover how to locate relevant candidate leads quickly and without a lot of complex searches.  This session will help recruitment professionals learn how to find people information that is readily available on the web. Recruiters need to be imaginative in their approach to sourcing top talent today and this session will help attendees redefine their daily recruiting activities.

OVERCOME THE UNIVERSAL FORCES OF FAILURE IN RECRUITMENT & HR

LAURIE RUETTIMANN 

The internet is overflowing with inspirational quotes about failure. If we don’t fail, we never grow. If we give up on ourselves, we give up on our dreams. There’s no shame in trying, there is only shame in quitting.

It’s clear these people have never had jobs in recruiting and HR.

Today’s workforce has never been more talented and disruptive. We are educated. We are mobile. We embrace change. Unfortunately, employee engagement in the global labor force is at an all-time low, and job dissatisfaction is at an all-time high. If failure is so critical to growth, how can we overcome pessimism in the workforce and risk-averse leadership styles to do cool stuff with our careers?

In this session, we will cover the “universal forces of failure” that impact every working professional on the planet. These are the known and unknown glitches that doom us to failure. We’ll cover cognitive strategies to enhance our chance of success, and we will explore how to manage friction between the drive for innovation and the tedious organizational politics that drag us down.

H.G. Wells wrote, “If you fell down yesterday, stand up today.” It’s time for recruiting and HR professionals to stand up, overcome the universal forces of failure, and start changing our stories.

CLIMBING NEW HEIGHTS WITH VERTICAL NETWORK SOURCING

LAURA STOKER // AIRS

The landscape of social media networks has evolved significantly in the past few years and there is a new and growing segment of online sites that professionals are migrating toward.  These sites are both social and professional in nature and can be classified as vertical networks.  Some of these sites have been around for many years, while others have been newly created.  They are attractive to individuals who want to network with people that have similar professional experience and who are perhaps disenchanted with the big general networking site.  Moving forward, it’s important for recruiters to know that these sites exist and to understand how to appropriately use them to locate specialized candidates.  This session will explore various vertical networks and best practices for sourcing candidates from these sites.

INCLUSIVE COLLABORATION – HOW OUR DIFFERENCES CAN MAKE THE DIFFERENCE

AARON HOLDER // ASSURITY

Technology thrives on innovation and creativity, and therefore, our industry relies upon a wide variety of people who think, react, work, communicate, interact, and socialise differently. Most modern workplaces value collaboration, teamwork, interaction, and change, but for many people, some of the ways we work and the working environments that result present unique challenges on top of the day-to-day technical challenges of software development. In some cases, they can stifle the very creativity and innovative thinking we are trying to foster.
In this talk, we’ll explore how having a neurodiverse workforce can give you a competitive edge, and how the workplace can respect diverse needs and different requirements for interaction and collaboration to bring out the best in everyone’s differences.
