Two of the best minds in the world of talent strategy also happen to be two of the industry’s biggest movie nerds. When we heard them debate what lessons there were for recruiting and employer brand professionals buried in 80s movies, we knew we had a winner. Seriously, rather than come up with a top 5 list, we just asked them to repeat their conversation. Tune in to hear:

  • The Employer Brand strategy you’re probably using that makes it nearly impossible to align recruiting and culture—even if you’re using employee generated content!—and ways to start fixing the mistake if you’ve already made it.
  • The Employer Brand tactic you’ve probably implemented (it follows from the strategy) that will erode your culture until you abandon it.
  • More from The Breakfast Club, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, This is Spinal Tap, Weird Science, Just One of the Guys, Stand by Me, and so many other classics…

No matter if you relate more with the Goonies, the Heathers, or the members of Bushwood Country Club—or if you simply want a window into what people did for fun before the internet—this webinar about how recruiting shapes culture, hosted by Jason Seiden & Ed Nathanson, will definitely speak your language.
