    Today’s Unemployment rate is the lowest it has been in over 50 years. As of December 2019, there are currently 0.8 unemployed workers for every available job.   Think of that — there are more job openings today than there are unemployed workers! 

    Our Speaker, Kristi Telschow – Certified Staffing Professional, will take us through how the market has shifted over the last 10 years, touching on what Recruiting Tools and Resources will help you navigate this competitive hiring market.  You will learn what tactics still work and what will keep you spinning your wheels unless you give your Recruiting strategy a tune up.

    You will walk away from this event with actionable items to improve the overall candidate experience, as well as ideas on how to make your company more attractive for prospective hires with branding, social media and creative benefits.


    At the end of this presentation, participants will learn:

    1. State of the Hiring Market today vs 10+ years ago.
    2. Tools to Recruit (Then vs Now) ie. you can’t practice the same tactics you have been doing for the last 10+ years. 
    3. Are you getting ghosted? Ways to avoid this…Candidate Experience (this starts the minute you post the opening on a job board) is important now more than ever.
    4. Social Media/Branding (Glassdoor, etc)
    5. Company incentives (salary, benefits, perks, sense of purpose)
