Public Recruiting Leadership Workshops

Recruiting Leadership Labs are 100% focused
on helping corporate recruiting managers
lead more effectively.

These workshops are not focused on how-to source, interview, and close candidates.  Instead, they focus on real-world best practices that help you win as a recruiting LEADER.  We focus on how to build and deploy sourcing and interviewing strategies, drive adoption of processes, coach your recruiters to become strong talent advisors, prioritize, make business cases, create a culture of recruiting, influence executives, and leverage metrics.  And this is not a death-by-PowerPoint presentation or conference.  This is a hands-on, scenario-based workshop focused on small group problem solving, peer-to-peer sharing, and hands-on work.  All with a singular goal – to help you elevate your role and deliver more value to your business and your recruiting team.

1-1/2 day, hands-on, focused learning and building for tech recruiting managers only

What will you share, learn and build?

This is different from Core 1 and Core 2 programs. This is not a PowerPoint driven workshop. It's a peer-to-peer sharing and prototyping workshop focused on 1 topic (not 4-5) over the course of 1.5 days.
You will do group work, you will build your strategy/program/process during the workshop, you will critique each other's work, and you will walk away with a quality output you can put into practice.

Topics are selected in advance, and all are focused exclusively on tech (software engineering) recruiting.

Next Topic: Tech Sourcing Strategies

  • What does a quality tech sourcing strategy look like?
  • How do you get tech hiring managers engaged in sourcing?
  • What are the best practice programs you need in place (i.e. employee referrals) to scale your strategy?
