Reinventing Recruiting…and It’s about Time HR Group Meets March 13

Posted on March 5, 2014 By

Every business wants to recruit and hire the best possible candidates and retain them. That is why in June and July of 2013, 122 firms willingly listed, described and dissected nearly 100 recruiting practices that “touched” their candidates’ experiences.

Ninety of those companies even invited a random sample of candidates, the majority of whom were not hired, to confirm their awareness and opinion of those practices. Those employers whose candidates saw their treatment as positive, were honored in October 2013 at the HRT Technology Conference in Las Vegas.

Gerry Crispin, one of the founders of the TalentBoard, the nonprofit driving the Candidate Experience Awards, will present information about the movement to reward companies that utilize positive recruitment practices and implications of this evidence-based approach for recruiting on Thursday, March 13, 2014, at the Jersey Shore Association for Human Resources (JSAHR) meeting, 8:00 to 10:00 a.m., at Jumping Brook Country Club, 210 Jumping Brook Road, Neptune, NJ.

Attendees will learn about and be able to apply principles of engagement to their recruiting process; be able to apply and distinguish minimally acceptable standards on how to treat candidates; relate the difference between candidates and the relationship needs of prospects and candidates in the recruiting pipeline, and identify best practices in treatment of candidates based on survey data.

The registration fee for the March meeting, including a full buffet breakfast, is $30.00 for JSAHR members; $40.00 for nonmembers; $25.00 for those in-transition, and $10.00 for full-time students. This program is pending HRCI credits To register, call Kathi Evans, JSAHR administrator, at 732-270-5204, or email JSAHR is a Silver Excel award winner of SHRM (Society for Human Resource Management).
