Who Should Attend?
Corporate Recruiting Managers and Directors (only) who lead recruiters and are responsible for recruiting strategy for some or all of their organization.
Past attendees have included recruiting leaders from companies in technology, financial services, retail, consumer packaged goods, healthcare, and more, including Twitter, eBay, Nike, Facebook, Microsoft, GoDaddy, Netflix, IKEA, Starbucks, Visa, KPMG, Square, Booking.com, Nestle, Target, PepsiCo, Little Caesars, Deloitte, KLA Tencor, SAP, Amazon, and LinkedIn.
Leaders have typically led small (3-person+) to large (20-person+) corporate recruiting teams.
Sorry, no vendors or partners to corporate recruiting teams (RPO, services, contingent or third-party recruiters, consultants) allowed. You must manage corporate recruiters to attend. This is not a hands-on “how to recruit” training or “future of talent acquisition” conference. This is 100% focused on helping current TA leaders lead, influence, and drive strategy.
Maximum 20 attendees per workshop, and no more than two recruiting leaders from the same company.
