#TheCandEs Virtual Conference: Ramping Full-Cycle – Recruiting and Hiring Proven Practices Post-Pandemic

Join #TheCandEs virtually for two days of great speakers and sessions talking about Recruiting and Hiring Proven Practices Post-Pandemic.

Job growth is on the rise again as we move beyond the impact of COVID-19. Companies across industries are recruiting and hiring interns, contractors, hourly employees, professional hires and more. Hybrid remote and onsite, or fully back in the office, the store, the plant or wherever, companies continue to figure out how and where to get back to work.

No matter what happens next, recruiting teams and technologies are ramping full-cycle to recruit and hire post pandemic — from pre-application to onboarding.

Join #TheCandEs virtually for two days of great speakers and sessions talking about Recruiting and Hiring Proven Practices Post-Pandemic on August 18-19, 2021, from 11 AM ET – 3 PM ET each day. Plus, join us for 30 minutes roundtable virtual networking to meet your peers during day 1.

You can check out the speakers and the agenda below! This event will be virtual again and held in the Whova app (where you can attend on your computer, tablet and/or mobile). We will be launching our event app at least 1 week before the virtual conference. The virtual conference will be approved for 3 SHRM & HRCI credits each day as well!

We’ll also be giving away 3 reMarkable 2 next-generation paper tablets so you can be ready to take notes in those old-fashioned in-person meetings. Each one valued at almost $500!

Can’t make the event live? All of the sessions will be recorded and available to registrants for 3 months, so there is no missing out! Come save your seat today — you have to be registered to get access to any and all sessions.

Register Today! Registration is free and donations are welcome (recommended donation is $50, although any amount would be appreciated).

Talent Board is the first nonprofit research organization focused on improving recruiting, hiring and the candidate experience. Donations go a long way to help us continue our mission!
