    and employment.

                Topic:
                HR Metrics That Matter
               

      Key Takeaways: 

          Today’s HR professionals are expected to be business partners. Learning to leverage metrics that matter will help you align HR practices to strategic business goals. Through case study and interactive discussion, participants will leave with a better understanding of how to look at and present workforce analytics, how to align HR activities to what’s important to the business, and how to create a compelling story to influence and gain buy-in from key stakeholders in their organization.

      o   “Three in four surveyed companies (75%) believe that using people analytics is “important,” but just 8 percent believe their organization is “strong” in this area—almost exactly the same percent-age as in 2014.”

      o   “...more than 80 percent of HR professionals score themselves low in their ability to analyze—a troubling fact in an increasingly data-driven field”

        Topic:

To win the race for talent, an exceptional candidate experience matters from - your career site to the job offer. During the presentation Recruiting in the Age of Googlization author/speaker Ira S Wolfe will guide you on a candidate’s job search and provide tips and insights on how to convert more qualified job seekers to new hires.

        1. Identify the 10 signs of a broken recruitment process
        2. How to easily fix the most common candidate experience blunders
        3. Learn basic (and not-so-obvious) digital recruitment marketing skills to create a spectacular candidate experience
