The availability of quality talent is the #1 obstacle many firms face in regards to their staffing efforts, according to LinkedIn’s 2015 U.S. Staffing Trends report.

Talent Sourcing is the most useful method to overcome this obstacle. Over the past decade, talent engagement strategies have changed significantly with the need to find and attract skilled workers on a decreased budget. It’s no longer effective to wait for replies on job boards. Companies must compete for talent by actively seeking out skilled workers to fill positions and create a pipeline of qualified candidates, and social media provides the platform to source these individuals.

Join us on Thursday, June 25th as our expert panelists, Josh Powell and Jill Day, show you the tools to source, connect, and attract top talent for your organization!
