Human Resources Executives Special Interest Group Virtual Meeting 

Intelligent Hiring: How to Recruit and Adapt in the Era of the Open World Workforce 
June 17, 2022 09:00 AM - 11:00 AM 
Learn how forward thinking companies are adapting to new recruiting realities then discuss and apply with your peers. 

Many companies are starving for elite talent. The top 20% of Knowledge Workers are only available to those who think differently in order to attract, obtain and retain in the open-world workforce.

At this meeting, we'll hear from Rob Thorp, author of Intelligent Hiring: How to Recruit in the Era of the Open World Workforce and discuss how best we might adapt our recruiting processes to be more effective. Rob's experience as an elite recruiter and as a hiring manager at Fortune 100 clients prepare him to understand the most challenging questions facing modern recruiting and will enable you to get an advantage in the new post-COVID workplace. We will also discuss with member companies Associated Bank and Lands' End how our organizations might create more agility especially for rapidly shifting hiring needs and critical skills.

Participate in Customizing the Agenda: You’ll have the opportunity to play an active part in shaping the agenda for this session – and to maximize its relevance for you – by suggesting and selecting topics for break-out discussions and/or sharing a member practice spotlight to help us all grow better together. Once the agenda is complete, you choose the discussions you want to join. This will be a highly interactive session, so come prepared to share your questions, challenges and insights!
