Attracting a Different Pool of Talent – ADCAP NETWORK SERVICES

10:45am – 11:15am

In 2014, recruiters across the country bemoan the dreaded “Skills Gap.”  There are 3.8 million jobs companies across the country are unable to fill. Why? Employers claim these candidates don’t have the skills and experience necessary to succeed in these roles.

How are these candidates expected to glean these skills and experiences if nobody will give them the opportunity and training? It takes a company willing to make a long-term commitment to the growth of their teams.

How can a company build the business case to bring on less experienced talent? Through returning to our historical roots with the institution of apprenticeships, with a modern twist, of course, executed through an integrated acquisition, development and succession plan. This requires a unitization across multiple silos and compromise of expectation between the employer and employee.

In this session you will learn how to:

  • Implement a formalized apprentice program for both entry level & industry transition candidates
  • Create a road map for a successful talent acquisition program
  • Leverage your employer brand online to attract candidates you would have never considered before
