Where Have All The Good Candidates Gone?

The role of assessment and digital branding in hiring the right employees

“Digital Branding and Talent Assessment: Two Sides of the Same Strategy”

Topics covered:
MCG: Candidate Assessment
TMP: The Role of Technology & Branding in Selection

Finding talent in today’s mobile, digital, and social environment is challenging enough, but finding talent in a way that leads to more effective attraction, increased productivity, and improved retention? Well, that’s a completely different story.

Join TMP Worldwide, MCG Partners, and talent management leaders from Raytheon, Constant Contact, Dovetail Health and Lewtan Technologies as we discuss real-world strategies that can help you in your quest to hire the right employees.

Topics will include how digital branding and talent assessment can help attract, uncover, identify, and select ‘great candidates’ for role, team and culture fit. And more importantly, you’ll hear from talent management professionals who face the same challenges you do.
