    Hiring Trends in Today's World

    October 26, 2020

    This session is designed to provide management guidance in today’s very competitive and ever-changing world. Overall, there is decreased loyalty to a company, more contract positions, different working environments due to COVID-19 and technological enhancements, and an “always on” and instant gratification society that leads to more distractions than ever. We will discuss trends, best practices, and cautions in order to put participants’ organizations in the most favorable situation to attract, retain, and get the best performance out of their employees.

    At the end of this session, participants will:

    • understand what types of working environments top performers are looking for in today’s world of work.

    • understand some of the best hiring practices and have some actionable takeaways in order to implement them into their own organizations. 

    • learn about the importance of company culture; how it could lead to retention or voluntary turnover. 

    • learn about cautions such as filling a role too quickly or hiring or promoting people based on criteria other than one’s ability to do the job.
