Learn How to Build Talent Communities

In today’s national and global economies, the search for talent is a battlefield. Talent communities and talent networks are becoming a very viable option for companies to win the war in acquiring the best and brightest. But the question remains “What the bleep IS a Talent Community?”

Two of the top HR consultants, Jessica Miller-Merrell and Rayanne Thorn, will answer this question at 11 a.m. CDT Thursday, April 25 during a Blogging4Jobs Webinar. Registration is available on the main page of the website.

This session will discuss talent communities, talent networks, and how building an online relationship with candidates and current employees beyond the applicant tracking system can benefit your organization’s long term strategic talent and people efforts.
“HR professionals and their leaders can build a solid recruiting strategy using surveys and focus groups to assess their specific global as well as local staffing needs,” Miller-Merrell said. “We’ll evaluate talent community trends in countries like Canada, the UK, Australia, and Asia in addition to the United States.”

Speakers will discuss local as well as global talent community building strategies and the benefits of these communities when it comes to global workforce and workforce planning. Special attention will be paid to how taking advantage of the new trend in talent communities can aid in your organization’s long term people forecasting and human capital needs with every department within your organization.
