Online communities populate the Internet today and extend beyond the major social networks, and consumer and business-to-business brands understand the value of creating and maintaining business communities to address customer needs and to retain them long term.
But true talent communities continue to be elusive for the enterprise. How do organizations engage and develop applicants and employees alike beyond broadcasting jobs and internal mobility opportunities?
Join us this Wednesday, December 5, 2012, from 1:00 p.m. 2:00 p.m. EST (10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. PST) for a webinar that will help to answer this question and address the benefits of building and maintaining true talent communities from the entire organization's ecosystem of applicants, employees and alumni. Over time, online talent communities lead to improved:
- Talent acquisition
- Ongoing development
- Cultural unity
Our guest presenters include Leanne Chase, Director of Content and Communications for The Community Roundtable, and Marvin Smith, Strategic Sourcing Consultant with Lockheed Martin.
The Community Roundtable provides community management resources and has many diverse member companies. According to Leanne, they've seen an increase in the number of HR executives requesting online community information. And based on Marvin's extensive sourcing and recruiting experience, there’s a confluence of recruiting trends to date – one of the traditional transactional recruiting activities, and the other of the experimental and transitional recruiting activities that include building and maintaining talent communities. Marvin says the key is that it takes strategic planning as and looking ahead three to five years in the recruiting and talent engagement cycles.
To learn more from Leanne and Marvin, talent acquisition, human resource and learning & development leaders are encouraged to attend our informative Talent Community Facts and Fundamentals Webinar on Wednesday, December 5, 2012, from 1:00 p.m. 2:00 p.m. EST (10:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. PST).
