When it comes to recruitment and hiring, you've got a lot of options to consider. Depending on the type of position you're looking to fill, search firms, trade unions, colleges, and your own workforce are just a few of the resources you can tap into to find candidates. But are the candidates you find really a match for your needs? And how well will they fit into your organization's strategic mission?

Even once you find a match, your work isn't done yet. You need to be sure you have the resources in place for keeping your new worker happy and engaged so that he or she doesn't jump ship. Ideally, you're looking for a long, mutually productive relationship. And there are things you can do to greatly increase your odds of achieving this.

Join us on March 26 for an in-depth 90-minute audio conference all about the best strategies for finding, hiring, and retaining the best workers for your organization. Our speakers—both experienced management consultants—will cover:

  • The strategy and process errors you can't afford to make when hiring, and how to integrate strategic hiring plans into your overall business strategy
  • The true purpose of ATS—automatic tracking systems—and how you should be using them
  • Drafting a succession plan that works effectively for your organization and bolsters your ability to recruit and hire qualified candidates
  • Where to turn first when you need to fill a job, and why generally it's more beneficial to recruit and promote from within
  • Using branding and marketing strategies to attract candidates who are a good fit for your organization
  • How to interpret a candidate's stated reason for leaving a previous job
  • Keeping who you've got by using effective strategies that align with your overarching strategic organizational goals
  • Why making a counteroffer to keep a departing worker is generally a bad idea
