Live Webinar: Recruiting 101 – How to Choose the Right ATS

Recruiting 101 – How to Choose the Right ATS. Let’s face it: Recruiting is hard. It’s nearly impossible without recruiting software or an applicant tracking system to help you automate the massive amount of daily tasks involved in hiring.

As someone working in recruiting or HR, you have control of the first part of the onboarding and training process and have a large part to play in the successful onboarding of the entire company’s new hires. Join us on Thursday, June 28, 2018, Time: 11:00 AM PST, 1:00 PM EST, for a live webinar to learn what an applicant tracking system is, what to look for, and how to choose the right vendor.

Black or White: Moving Beyond the Traditional Diversity & Inclusion Box

Speaker: Elena Valentine, CEO of Skillscout, and Nancy Harris, CEO of Restart Consulting LLC

“But, if you're thinkin' about my baby, It don't matter if you're black or white.”. Michael Jackson’s popular song from the early 90’s only touched on one aspect of diversity. As time has progressed, we recognize that diversity extends far beyond just “black or white.” But often times, that is the focus of our diversity, equity and inclusion initiatives. And with this narrow focus, we can become trapped “in a box “ that inadvertently overlooks other aspects of DE&I. This can lead to employees feeling frustrated and our programs spinning in circles with no real progress. We’re here to disrupt your thinking and approach to traditional DE&I.
