Talent Talk - Hiring Manager Relationships

Talent Talk
is back for 2020 and we’re ready to talk about Hiring Manager Relationships. In this session, we will be discussing some best practices and common pain points (with solutions) when it comes to building relationships with hiring managers… facilitated by YOU and other local HR Professionals in KC.

·       Do hiring managers really need to see "one more candidate" for comparison?

·       Why does the candidate experience matter and what’s the tie to company culture?

·       How do you overcome discriminatory hiring practices?

·       Wait, do purple squirrels really exist?

We hope to see you at the Historic Union Station June 23, 2020 for our discussion on Hiring Manager Relationships. This is also a great networking opportunity to network with other local HR and Talent Acquisition Professionals in the KC Metro.
