Quotes for March Madness–And Life

March Madness

Well, I had Villanova going all the way this March. Sigh. My dreams of winning the office bracket pool were busted early on. I felt very smart crowning Northwestern as my “Cinderella.” Sigh again.

There is no “silver bullet” in today’s recruiting world. To attract the best talent, organizations have to use a blended recruiting or “go to market” strategy.

To attract, hire, and retain the best, leaders need to ask themselves tough questions:

  • What is the definition of “top talent”?
  • What’s great about social recruiting and what about the new trends?
  • Are all company leaders on the same page?
  • When does recruiting start?
  • How is the leadership team supporting recruiting efforts?
  • Is recruiting really a priority?
  • How do we engage the hiring managers?
  • Why would “A” candidates want to work at our organization?
  • Are key influencers in the organization living out the company mission?
  • Who is on our recruiting team?
  • What does the data indicate about the origin of our top talent?

Join us for an interactive discussion and planning session where we develop usable tools to help you address your talent needs.

Most people do.  Our mild winter certainly has kept me outdoors more than usual in January and February.  However, there have been the occasional days when I have had to use the elliptical in my garage.  Sigh! Snore! Boooring—if it weren’t for TED Talks! TED promotes their talks as, “influential […]

Goering Center for Family & Private Business presents–

Competing for Talent in a Scarce Labor Market

February 9, 2017

Sharonville Convention Center

11:30 a.m.-1:00 p.m. (Luncheon)

Can you fill your open labor positions? If no, you’re not alone. Ninety-eight percent of Cincinnati companies said finding qualified workers was a challenge, according to a Deloitte survey of the region’s private businesses.

On February 9, join us for lunch to learn why we’re in this fix, and see how local business owners are finding success in spite of it.

Janice Urbanik, Executive Director of Partners for a Competitive Workforce, will moderate a conversation between business owners who are implementing creative solutions in an effort to keep their workforce pipelines full.

  • Understand what the workforce pipeline is and why it should be continuously replenished
  • Identify the changing paradigms and regional factors contributing to a skilled labor shortage in our community
  • Self-assess and identify the policy and cultural barriers built in businesses that keep skilled labor workforce pipelines empty

Hear from those who are affecting positive change to discover how you can compete for talent. Reserve your seat for this luncheon today!
