Please join us for lunch and a presentation from Tom Brown / Talented Solutions Group on America's Got Talent ... Acquisition. 


The War on Talent is Over... in fact it never actually was a war. The concept of using Weapons Of Mass Employment just don't align with the Human Resource Code of Ethics. Will the job market will continue to improve causing both job seekers and employees to have more leverage? Will this evolution cause salaries to increase and employers to invest more job advertising, staffing firms and employee benefits?

This presentation will discuss: 1. The Evolution of Traditional Recruiting Tools 2. The imminent effect of automation on labor costs. 3. The impact that The Candidate Experience has on recruiting. 4. The discovery of Local and National Trends (as well as a participation exercise to create the Largest List of Recruiting Ideas in the history of West Michigan).

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify what has the greatest impact on the Recruiting Process moving forward.
    2. The effect of the rapid pace of Automation on Labor Demand and growing Labor Costs.
    3. The importance of Candidate Experience plays in the Recruiting Process.
    4. The study and applicable understanding of a 15 year employment trend; including, Applicants and Generation Classification, declining share of the workforce employed in manufacturing, as well as the potential of a large-scale, permanent program of public employment and infrastructure investment.
