Just like sports or any business process, hiring top talent requires a set of rules. I'm looking forward to sharing my rules for hiring top talent with hundreds of HR professionals during our live tour in 2008
Irvine, CA (PRWEB) January 2, 2008
More than two-thirds of respondents in The Adler Group's 2008 Recruiting and Hiring Challenges Survey believe that hiring top talent is harder today than it has ever been. According to Lou Adler, author of the bestselling book Hire With Your Head (Wiley, 3rd Edition, 2007), they're right. "I don't believe that companies are reacting fast enough to maintain their competitive position given fundamental labor market changes now taking place," says Adler. These changes, and what companies can do to address them, are the subject of The Adler Group's 2008 Live Tour to be held in four cities around the US. During the full-day workshops Lou Adler will present "The Official Rules for Hiring Top Talent."
The first live event is March 6 in Orlando, Florida, followed by Washington D.C. on May 8, Chicago, IL on September 10, and Los Angeles on November 13. "The event is aimed at recruiting managers and HR leaders who want to increase quality of hire and reduce turnover. The tremendous success of our 2007 Performance-based Hiring Tour gave us valuable insight into the current challenges faced by organizations as they grapple with talent shortages," says Kathy Barton, Senior Vice President of Marketing for The Adler Group.
The workshops will include segments on using Performance-based Hiring to source more and better candidates, the two best interviewing questions of all time, and how to partner with hiring managers. Additionally, Lou Adler will be presenting his greatest closing secrets and introducing attendees to best practices and resources that will give them the tools to hire the best talent in 2008.
"Just like sports or any business process, hiring top talent requires a set of rules. I'm looking forward to sharing my rules for hiring top talent with hundreds of HR professionals during our live tour in 2008," says Lou Adler.
