Uncovering and Cultivating Hidden Talent
This is not your father’s job market. The hiring and training landscape if shifting every day. Employers face growing pressure to hire and retain quality employees. Meanwhile, job seekers and incumbent workers have more options than ever before.
Join the Buffalo Niagara Partnership for a four-part series designed to help employers understand where to find talent and how to keep that talent for the long term.
Session 1: Next Gen Talent
If your hiring practices aren’t focused on 18–24-year-olds, you are going to lose the race for talent. Attracting youth to your organization is a powerful tool that will reap benefits now and give you a strategic advantage for years to come. In this session, you will learn more about WNY’s 18-24 population, how to connect with them, what will make your job opportunity stand out.
