SHRM-KC Membership Program: Finding Quality Workers Using Non-Traditional Sources

  • 07/11/2023
  • 11:15 AM - 1:00 PM
  • Grand Street Café, 4740 Grand Ave., Kansas City, MO 64112


Registration is closed

Today, many companies struggle to fill job vacancies using traditional methods. (Job Fairs, Employment Search Engines, etc.) According to a recent survey conducted by Employ Inc. 88% of HR decision makers believe hiring in 2023 will be more or as difficult as 2022.

Also, 60% of these same decision makers indicate the need to make more hires in 2023. Of course, the challenge lies with extremely low unemployment rates which leave traditional applicant pools unable to fill existing employer demand for new workers. Given the current landscape, HR departments must be adaptable, creative, and efficient to separate themselves from the competition.

Panelists include: Timothy Jackson - Missouri Department of Economic Development; Charity Deutch - KCVA Medical Center; Arthur Diaz - U.S. Probation & Pretrial Services; and Kathleen Kennedy - Journey To a New Life. 

In this session presented by the Kansas City V.A. Medical Center, Missouri Vocational Rehabilitation and U.S. Probation & Pretrial Services you will learn: 

  • Where to find alternative sources of job seekers
  • The range of skill sets possessed by these job seekers
  • How to effectively engage local organizations (non-staffing agencies) that assist with recruiting and retention efforts of these individuals
