Companies are seeking creative ways to recruit candidates to fill their talent management needs. Unfortunately, most wait until they are in need instead of utilizing consistent searching and recruiting to keep their talent banks full. This would not only prepare them for the future but also save time &  money when its time to fill a position.

Even great sports teams are constantly on the lookout for superstar talent to keep their benches strong and successful. Imagine if they didn’t, how would they win the next season? Strategic and routine searches for the next great player help them stay ahead of the competition

This is important for all kinds of organizations, given the competitive talent environment.  Being prepared allows organizations to have choices in their hiring decisions and not hire the first person that walks through the door. 

Are you ready to think more creatively about finding talent? Thinking outside the box when building a strong talent bench is important and will help set you apart.  Please join TSHRM & 4 Subject Matter experts to reimagine the talent pool:

· Discover the huge opportunities in utilizing candidates who are disabled, legally reformed, coming out of retirement, and are part of the veteran community.  

· Learn about recruitment strategies & identify barriers of tapping into talent from these communities.

· Hear success stories and uncover the benefits of leveraging talent from these communities.
