Maine HR Convention: May 9 – 12, 2022


CLOSING KEYNOTE PANEL: Crowd Sourcing Talent Acquisition for Success

Thursday, May 12th, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

A roadmap for your return to work next Monday!

Why you’ll want to participate in this session. You’ve learned a lot this Convention week, and we want you to join our closing panel to discuss the #1 issue in the HR world today: Talent Acquisition. This session is a unique opportunity to share what you’ve learned: over the course of your career, and from this week as you prepare to take the ideas back to work.

We know you are coming to the convention with past wins and successes, and we want to learn from each other! Your hosts, Heather Jury and Carolyn Hart, will share their best tips for recruiting in the current job market, and in true crowdsourcing fashion, will encourage you to share as well.

What’s it all about?     

  • We’ll unpack the significant takeaways for the week that you can share with your organization when you return. What was surprising for you to learn? What are you already doing well? Where can you make small changes that can make immediate improvements?
  • We’ll discuss what has worked for you in your organization that you can share with other convention attendees – from attracting candidates, keeping your employees, enhancing the employee experience, and marketing your employer brand. How are you finding success in retention in this era of The Great Resignation? What are your current candidate attraction and recruiting challenges that you would like help with from the crowd?
