Joanna Kelly of The Talent Company will present an overview of the strategies and attitudes that help organizations attract the best talent even in trying times. We will look at Virtual Recruitment and Selection, while keeping in mind that hiring right remains true to these four pillars: • Knowledge: Be clear on what you need and know your market • Attraction: Who is out there? What’s your EVP? • Investigation: Strong interview skills along with a clear and concise process • Empathy: Treat people the way you would like to be treated, communicate well and in a timely manner and be decisive.
