Event Gathers Top Minds to Share Innovations and Improve Canadian Businesses.
TORONTO, Oct. 3, 2012 /CNW/ - In just over a year, Head2Head's CONNECT Strategic Recruitment Forum has become the premier event for leaders in Canadian recruitment. The most recent event, held in September, gathered an exclusive crowd of more than 100 senior stakeholders from some of Canada's top organizations.
"Growth has been incredible," says Kim Benedict, Head2Head's Head of Sales. "Canadian recruitment and HR are facing the same challenges - tight budgets, market pressures, and the constant drive to do more with less. CONNECT is the only event that provides a confidential forum to address these issues with a senior peer group."
The September CONNECT featured a keynote presentation on using workforce planning and proactive recruitment strategies to gain an edge in today's competitive talent market. Following a roundtable discussion, leaders from companies including TD Bank, CGI, Morneau Shepell, Walmart Canada, and Davis + Henderson shared insights on how their firms were approaching these issues.
"CONNECT provides huge value in bringing together Canada's senior recruitment thought leaders to share their experiences and insight on evolving the talent attraction function," says Steve Knox, Global Talent Acquisition Leader for GE Canada. "We have seen great advancements the past 15 years in how we recruit and the tools we use. CONNECT provides an invaluable opportunity to dialogue with other thought leaders and benchmark best practices."
The next CONNECT will be held in January, focusing on trends in recruitment for 2013 and beyond. Recruitment leaders interested in attending are encouraged to reach out to Kim Benedict at (416) 440-2057 or [email protected] to learn more.
The Connect Strategic Recruitment Forum is an exclusive, invite-only event for recruitment and HR leaders at the senior manager level and above. The event creates a confidential space to share ideas and innovations, and discuss the opportunities in the changing Canadian recruitment landscape.
