Hiring & Retaining Diverse Talent

Thursday, June 23 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm • Organized By UMKC TalentLink
Online Event


In such a turbulent market, attracting and retaining talent remains pivotal for the success of your organization and the well-being of your employees. The pandemic challenged organizations to continue to deliver meaningful employees and candidates in a more resilient workforce, despite shrinking HR teams, limited human contact opportunities, and ever-changing hiring needs.

While the benefits of a multi-generational workforce may seem obvious, they can easily be overlooked. Organizations must redesign their talent acquisition process with a smaller recruiting force and more selective talent bases– simply redeploying existing resources isn’t enough.
