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. Applicant tracking systems are command-central for all recruiting activities and manage everything from posting jobs, to collecting feedback, to moving candidates through the funnel and onboarding new hires. But buying an ATS can be as overwhelming as recruiting itself. 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

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. This highly interactive session will have you seeing more than just “black or white.".
