Session 2

Recruiting is all about building strong relationships and understanding how recruiting and marketing are intertwined. The brand you build for your firm or organization should have a recruiting component to it. Most firms are building their brand to bring in new work which is important but they should also be thinking about how to attract the next round of talent they will need to hire to do the work they bring in.

Session 3

We will spend time helping you make your firm a great place to work. Is everyone on the same page as it pertains to growth? Do you give your employees room to fail and learn from their mistakes or do you micromanage everything? Is personal and professional development part of the overall company plan or just an afterthought? Is there clear access to leadership and are transparent discussions encouraged? Finally, are you competitive with pay and benefits in your current market compared to other peer firms. This session should help you take stock of where your company is with regards to being a “Great Place to Work!” There is always room for improvement and some of the ideas shared should drive real discussion and change when and where needed in your organization.

Session 4

We purposefully put the topic of Recruiting KPI’s right in the middle of this webinar series. A lot of firms don’t know their numbers when it comes to recruiting or retention. Our goal will be to help you answer these basic questions: How many candidates do we have for each open position? How long does it take to fill a position? What is our average cost to fill a position? All of these questions and more will be discussed.

Imagine doing all of this work and not having a plan in place for properly executing interviews and even more important, offers. Based on our years of experience we will walk you through an ideal interview environment and what the candidate should experience. Once the interview process is complete we will go over the best methods for delivering an employment offer and also discuss some the deal breakers that we normally see come that are easily avoidable.

Session 6

Finally, we are going to spend a session talking about Social Media and the necessary steps to create a solid plan to reach out to people from a variety of portals including, LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, your company website, and Instagram to name a few.

According to the Pew Research Center “Job seeking is going mobile: 28% of Americans have used a smartphone as part of a job search, and half of these “smartphone job seekers” have used their smartphone to fill out a job application.”

We will discuss some best practices you can employ right away to help you figure out where you stand with regards to social media and mobile recruiting.
