Event overview

A company’s biggest asset, in terms of success and innovation, is its people. However, when it comes to attracting and hiring the best talent, this is often seen as “someone else’s” responsibility.

Hiring is a team sport. It is up to everyone – from leadership and TA to hiring managers and HR – to be engaged, informed and aligned on this front. It should permeate into the DNA of an organization, becoming a shared goal for every stakeholder with the end result being the creation of a culture of hiring.

This event brings together leaders in the world of talent acquisition and HR from leading global companies such as Cisco and Adidas to discuss what hiring culture means to them, why it's vitally important and what are the best methods for embedding this into an organization.

Hiring the best talent is fundamental, but when it’s siloed away in a company, you limit the potential to find and retain great staff.

By opening it out, so everyone has skin in the game, you reduce the risk of making bad hires, bolster your efforts for D&I, create positive candidate experiences and augment your employer brand – and ultimately hire great talent! It’s win-win-win-win!

Who is the event for?

While aimed at TA leaders and HR executives particularly, this digital event is also essential for anyone in a leadership role with growing teams who are hiring at scale.

We are bringing together industry experts from some of the world’s best known organizations, like Cisco and Adidas, to unpack the concept of a hiring culture in terms of its strategic importance.

What will I learn?

Our primary goal is to explain the nature of a hiring culture and how it can vastly benefit your organization.

Through a series of industry expert panels and fireside chats with leaders in TA and HR, you will learn how best to operationalize this model and frame it to your business. Finally, we will also help you understand how to measure success.
