Best Practices in Sourcing New Hires on Feb. 6

Posted Jan. 7, 2013

 
The Corporate University, Kent State University at Stark is offering a series of four panel discussions to address best practices in the workplace. Each program is scheduled to take place from 7:30 - 9:30 a.m. at The University Center, 6000 Frank Avenue NW in Jackson Township.

The first panel discussion in the series, Best Practices in Sourcing New Hires, takes place on Wednesday, Feb. 6, 2013.
 
The challenge before all organizations is to find the right person with the right skills and the right attitude to fit into the right position to help move your organization forward. But where is that person? Using traditional sourcing techniques (i.e. want ads) may not be your best strategy as we move into the knowledge economy. Join our panel and learn how they use non-traditional methods to source the best candidates to position their organizations for the future.
 
Panelists include Meredith Soleau, human resources manager at Ed Schmidt Auto Group in Toledo, Ohio; Gayle Agahi, director of strategic partnerships at the Cleveland Clinic Foundation; and Joyce Rodek, Joyce Rodek, director of North Canton Executive Networking Group. Moderating the panel discussion will be Evelyn Hronek, the managing director of Creative Financial Staffing of Northeastern Ohio Ltd. at Bruner-Cox LLP.
