Private Calls with Heads of Talent at Major Brands

No Vendors. Confidential. Senior Leaders Only.

December 1

Securing Resources for Recruitment Marketing
(MEMBERS ONLY)

Description:

How can you get leadership’s attention and support to make additional investments in employer brand and talent marketing? This isn’t just a time to defend the resources you have, but to advocate for more help. Let’s gather senior leaders from other big brands to see how to make the case. We’ll discuss creating high-level scorecards to showcase the value to leadership; pushing for support in the face of hiring uncertainty; and deciding whether to ask for headcount or budget — or both. Before you ask for help from your company, lean on heads of big brand talent programs who know what you’re going through. Always confidential, and always here to help, the Board is the place to go to navigate these challenges.
