Talent Acquisition Realities, Challenges, and Strategies

When:  Apr 23, 2020 from 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM (PT)
Associated with  Global HERC Community
The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted higher education as nothing has before, creating hiring freezes, possible layoffs and uncertainty around recruiting and hiring. Join us for a panel discussion as talent acquisition leaders in higher education share how their institutions are responding to the pandemic and how talent acquisition professionals can support their colleges and universities with useful strategies. We’ll be discussing:  
• Keeping candidates "warm" during a hiring freeze
• Informational interviews to continue building a pipeline of candidates
• Managing remote hiring/onboarding 
• EEO ramifications of moving to 100% virtual recruiting, interviewing, hiring, and onboarding
• What to do if you need to rescind a job offer...and how to protect your brand

Participants will be invited to ask questions and share strategies they are implementing at their institution.
