Virtual Event: Key Trends Guiding Recruitment Leaders through the New COVID-19 World

21st October 2020


The 2020 pandemic has radically changed work as we know it.  HR and Talent professionals can no longer talk about the future of work as though change is on the horizon. The future of work is here, now.

As people leaders orient business processes to a true people-first paradigm, three guiding themes have emerged: the need for empathy, resilience, and empowerment. Taken together, these themes encompass six trends guiding HR leaders through changing times. In this virtual event, we will combine speaker case study presentations on recruitment processes with roundtable discussions that will provide you with the insights needed to move your processes and strategies forward in 2020 and beyond.

In each virtual roundtable room, we will introduce you to a carefully-selected network of industry leaders, all with similar goals and challenges, to exchange valuable insights and best practice in an intimate and engaging environment.

What’s being discussed
  • How organizations attempt business as usual when everything is profoundly unusual
  • Effective onboarding for a remote workforce
  • Developing a cohesive and inclusive community during the pandemic
  • Reskilling: how to manage and retain talent in a virtual world
  • Building a digital brand – how can employees & companies raise their profile in the current climate?
  • …and much more!
Who will be attending?

In-house Recruitment Leaders and Heads of Talent Acquisition from a wide spectrum of companies, all with ongoing hiring needs, to exchange strategic insights and best practices in an intimate and engaging environment.
