Virtual Slam Agenda

Session 1

Diversifying Your Talent Pipeline

Josh Bersin, Principal & Founder, Bersin by Deloitte
Leah Knobler, People Ops, Help Scout
Heather Doshay, VP People, Rainforest QA

In the age of proactive recruiting, talent teams now have the freedom to hand-select the vast majority of their new hires. From an inclusion perspective, this can be both a blessing and a curse as we consider how unconscious bias sneaks into our sourcing processes. Join us as we pick the brains of Josh Bersin, Principal and Founder of Bersin by Deloitte, Leah Knober, People Ops at Help Scout, and Heather Doshay, VP of People at Rainforest QA to share some of the secrets to building a more inclusive sourcing process and diversifying your candidate pipeline.

Session 2

Mastering the Analytics of Sourcing

Ryan Leary, Marketing Lead at RecruitingDaily
Kiersten Sattler, Staffing Services Associate Lead at Google
Nicole Dessain, Chief Talent Experience Designer at talent.imperative.inc

With endless data at our fingertips, many hiring teams still struggle to hammer home the business value of efficient hiring to their executive teams. Deciding which metrics are important and how to report on those metrics is both a challenge and an opportunity to elevate the recruiting function within an organization. Join us as Ryan Leary of RecruitingDaily, Kiersten Sattler of Google and Nicole Dessain of Talent.Imperative discuss their talent analytics best practices, and they use data-driven reporting to gain the support from the c-suite around proactive recruiting.
