Creative Recruitment in a Tight Talent Market

Recruiter's Panel


August 13, 2019 | 11:15 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. | Grand Street Cafe

Today’s tight talent market is greatly influencing benefits, pay, work flex, etc. The U.S. unemployment rate is almost at a 20 year low. That means there is less available talent and more open job opportunities that need to be filled. The competition for talent is fierce, and job-seekers have the upper hand with the knowledge that if they are unhappy in one position, there are plenty of others to choose from.

For employers, this increases the need to craft a powerful recruitment and retention package that draws in top talent and dissuades current critical employees from going anywhere.

Join SHRM of Greater Kansas City as they host an industry diverse panel of Talent Acquisition Professionals who are implementing creative solutions to stay competitive in a tight talent market. From sourcing talent unicorns to creating an impactful candidate experience, discover some tips and tricks to acquiring and keeping a great workforce.

The panel will be facilitaed by TeamKC.  TeamKC is proud to be the KC region’s authority on promoting Kansas City as a destination for talent. We work closely with a number of important regional partners, collaborating on solutions to support and accelerate the growth of the companies that call KC home.


TeamKC was created more than a decade ago by the Kansas City Area Development Council as a competitive advantage for employers across the region walking alongside their efforts to attract the best and brightest talent to the KC area. Today, TeamKC is a collective of more than 1,000 recruiters, HR executives and community partners, who are all competing for talent, coming together to elevate Kansas City.


We take the sports theme seriously at TeamKC, and we know that in any sport, a team is constantly training, adapting and enhancing all of its skills to win. In many ways, each employer is like a sports team. The way they recruit, retain and develop talent is constantly changing. TeamKC empowers talent acquisition and HR leaders by providing practical tips, trends and resources to take the talent game to the next level.


This program has been pre-approved for 1.0 hour of PHR/SPHR recertification credit through the HR Certification Institute ( and SHRM CP/SCP professional development credit through SHRM (
