In 2018, The Council of Industry launched our collaborative recruiting initiative allowing member firms to post jobs and manage candidates at a fraction of the cost of a separate applicant tracking system. We have helped members fill hundreds of jobs and have thousands of resumes on file. We provide HR and administrative support with reports, job descriptions and best practices. Join us to learn more.

This webinar will be broken into two segments the first half will cover the details about the program and why you might consider joining the initiative and the second half is a demo going into further detail about job postings, reports, and candidate communication options.

HR Network: Recruiting, Interviewing, Hiring and On-Boarding in Today's World

When: Tuesday, July 21, 2020, 8:30 am - 10:00 am

Where: Online - Zoom

Let's face it - everything changed. Only a few months ago we were worried about painfully low unemployment and legalization of marijuana. We had no idea the next phase of HR challenges would include taking employee temperatures, remote learning, fear, anxiety, and employees refusing to return to work (clearly, just the tip of the iceberg).  But as they say, the show must go on! 

Join us this month for a members-only conversation about challenges and best practices for recruiting in this unsettled environment. Conducting online interviews, attracting talent, overcoming obstacles, on-boarding new employees, supporting employees during transition and resources available to help. 

We will talk with Rebecca Mazin, Owner of Recruit Right HR Consulting and Management Trainer about all this COVID recruiting from virtual career fairs, fully-remote recruiting, socially distant training,  insights into the candidate experience and the new normal. 

Many of you will remember Rebecca from previous network meetings and as a student favorite from our certificate in manufacturing leadership program.

Tuesday, July 21st 8:30 - 10:00
