There is a significant difference between transactional hiring and strategic hiring.  Companies committed to strategic, scalable hiring solutions will win in the market and with their employees, but this requires buy-in and support at the Leadership Level.

Transforming TA into a best in class operation hinges on a continued investment, in the form of budget, resources, people and time. Unfortunately, many TA leaders and their teams find themselves in situations where requesting more support is challenging, if not impossible.

Being able to effectively communicate what you need to succeed is paramount to achieving your hiring goals. Join us for a free webinar on Thursday, December 9, at 2pm ET, as Vadim Liberman, Elaine Davidson, Ronielle Pierce, and Crystal Stanfield discuss best practices when influencing leaders to invest in TA.

Key takeaways of this conversation will include:

  • Leading with data
  • Speaking in a language that the business understands
  • Communicating the cost of investing and not investing
  • Winning the buy-in of key stakeholders
