ERE’s Spring Conference for Recruiting Leaders: New Speakers, New Topics, New Format

We’ve going live with the website for our spring conference, an event for in-house talent-acquisition leaders loaded with speakers from fast-growing and big-name companies like Instacart, TOMS, Western Union, Hershey’s, GoDaddy, and tons more.

Previously in San Diego, we’re now headed to the Red Rock in the Las Vegas area. I’ve stayed there. You’ll love it.

The theme is “data-driven talent acquisition.” That doesn’t mean you have to be a statistician to want to go. On the contrary, expect an agenda about how data has been used to improve talent acquisition, including topics such as:

  • Turn Your Talent Data Into Hard Dollars so the Business Gets It
  • Rethink Where Your TA Time and Money Are Going
  • A Data-driven Approach to the Candidate Experience
  • Using Data to Uncover Breakdowns in the Interview Process
  • Assessing Leaders
  • Data-Driven Digital Strategies for Recruitment Marketing

That’s like the tip of the tip of the iceberg. The full agenda is here. The registration page is here.

Ever been to conferences where you’ve been bored senseless sitting there for 12 hours a day listening to clip-art filled PowerPoint presentations trying to drink enough coffee to stay awake while hearing what you could have heard in 2006? This is not that sort of dreary format.

Instead, expect things like this:

Interactive workshops (RSVP required for these, capped at 40 people each) on topics such as

a) Connecting Business Value and Talent Acquisition: An ROI Roadmap for TA Leaders;

b) Leading Consultative Talent-acquisition Teams and

c) Building A “Can’t Miss” Business Case To Fund New Recruiting Programs

– One-on-one meetings to talk about your challenges and potential solutions from subject matter experts. Hurry fast as when we tried this last time spots filled up quickly, so first to lock in get preference.

Roundtable discussions with your peers.

20-minute sessions where people get right to the point: what is the business problem? What is the solution? What is the outcome?

– New speakers you haven’t seen before and who don’t tend to speak at a lot of other conferences.
