With Q4 approaching, many leaders may shift their approach to hiring in the new year. Conversely, employees who considered switching companies during the Great Resignation, may decided to stay. But for how long? Our keynote will explore how TA leaders can retain their talent – especially during a recession. 

The recruitment process is antiquated and impersonal, and work as we know it has evolved. To retain the right talent, recruiters have to be able to differentiate themselves from the competition, tell a better story, build a stronger talent relationship management system, and enhance the candidate experience. This session offers the strategies talent acquisition teams need in 2023 and beyond.

According to a LinkedIn report, 94% of employees will choose to remain with companies that invest in their careers. It’s time to reward the employees that have stayed with you through the Great Resignation. Listen to talent acquisition leaders walk through their internal mobility strategies that drive loyalty and retention.

TA teams are stretched thin. Oftentimes, they’re at the mercy of decisions from senior leaders that impact people planning strategies and leave talent acquisition teams in a reactive state. Our panel discussed how TA Leaders can take proactive measures to be more involved in strategic planning, and be positioned as strategic advisors.

Recruiters have been put through the wringer over the last two years. TA teams report working crazy hours to help fill candidate pipelines, experience fits and starts with shifting headcount priorities. Not to mention, they are dealing with difficult and sometimes irregular candidate demands  – all while battling fatigue and burnout. In this session, attendees received tips and tricks for protecting their mental health during difficult times.

Has your company prioritized its Diversity, Equity and Inclusion strategy? Even in times of economic uncertainty, it’s imperative that your company keep representation on its radar and continue to fight for it – even when budgets are constrained. In the final session for the Accelerate 2022 event, Lever released the findings of its new DEI survey, and attendees learned how companies are fine-tuning their DEI recruiting strategies in 2023.

In our closing keynote,  our speaker discussed how having a more empathetic and human approach to hiring will drive loyalty, retention, and a deep connection to corporate values — bridging the gap between employee experience and candidate experience.
