The labs will offer unique courses and opportunities that can benefit HR practitioners of all experience levels from the basics of sourcing to tackling the most difficult of recruiting challenges.

The Sourcing Institute has recruited top strategists to conduct a track of Sourcing Labs that will run throughout the conference.

Labs are presented by Chris Murdock of IQ Talent, Conni LaDouceur of ExecuQuest Corp., Michael Gray from First Data Corporation, Ronnie Bratcher from Guideware Software, and Shally Steckerl and Holly Mallowes from The Sourcing Institute.

“It’s critical for every organization to optimize their recruiting function,” says Shally Steckerl, Founder and President of The Sourcing Institute. “Smart, effective sourcing is the key to developing a virtuous cycle of sustainable competitive advantages.”
Sourcing is increasingly important to the recruiting function, and compensation for sourcing positions reflect that, with salaries for typical entry-level sourcing/recruiting positions starting at $60,000 annually. In addition to high wages in sourcing specifically, the HR industry overall is projected to grow 13% faster than all other occupations. Indeed.com shows dramatic increase in sourcing/recruiter job postings since Jan 2014, where job growth for recruiting positions is trending at over 60%.
“Corporations and HR departments are recognizing sourcing as a skill and seeing how critical it is to a successful, high-functioning recruiting team,” notes Brian Cuthbert, Executive Director of Recruiting Trends. “If you’re in HR and looking to build your own value to employers, it’s never been a better time to develop your sourcing skills.”
The Recruiting Trends Conference brings together leaders in recruiting, sourcing, talent acquisition, and human resources. Attendees have the opportunity to network, exchange ideas, and share best practices and bold new strategies for the hiring process. Registration for the Recruiting Trends Conference, pre-conference workshops, and the recruiter certification program is now open at http://www.recruitingtrends.com/conference.
