Join us for a SPECIAL PREMIUM WORKSHOP with Ben Eubanks on Wednesday, September 20, 2023 from 8am to 10:15am. You'll have time to experience the workshop and be ready for our opening keynote session at 10:30am.

There is a separate charge of $79 for this pre-conference workshop - How to attract, convert, and hire the best candidates in today's recruiting environment."Note: Ben's workshop WILL NOT be available on the virtual platform. The only way to attend his workshop will be in person.

Session Description: In the last few years, recruiting has gone from what felt like a difficult but achievable task to an Olympic-level test of patience and creativity. But some companies have cracked the code on what it takes to stand out in today's hiring market. During this working session, we will uncover insights from research of more than 1,000 employers, diving into critical topics like candidate ghosting, the role of technology, automation and the human touch, determining candidate quality pre-hire, and so much more.

Expect to leave this session with practical ideas on how to deliver a valuable candidate experience, attract candidates without breaking the budget, and create more predictable hiring outcomes in an unpredictable world.

All attendees of this preconference workshop will receive a copy of the bestselling book Talent Scarcity: How to Hire and Retain a Shrinking Workforce.

His bestselling book Talent Scarcity: How to Hire and Retain a Shrinking Workforce helps talent leaders that have struggled with the question, “Where are all the workers?” as they attempted to fill critical roles in recent years.
