Lab 4: Driving Recruiter Performance

Join John Vlastelica and a cohort of your corporate recruiting leader peers for one of Recruiting Toolbox’s Recruiting Leadership Labs focused on driving recruiter performance. In this lab, you and your peers will learn and share best practices to help you diagnose, coach, manage, and measure your recruiters and sourcers, ultimately driving performance improvements.

What Will You Learn?

  • How to coach your recruiters to become talent advisors
  • How to diagnose, coach, manage, and measure recruiters and sourcers to drive performance improvements
  • How to articulate your recruiter EVP, and attract the best recruiters
  • How to develop your recruiters through mentoring, metrics, stretch assignments, and training

We usually sell out several months in advance, so registering early is a great way to ensure that you secure your spot. Participation is limited to 20 corporate recruitment managers per leadership lab (no more than two from the same company).

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 of our labs 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.
