Did you know that there is a large pool of qualified workers that most hiring managers and recruiters never see that, if tapped, could solve your staffing shortages?
In this session, you’ll learn why leveraging the hidden talent pool can lead to a better return on your HR and recruitment investment, how tapping the hidden workforce can help advance key strategic initiatives including DEI, and how to adapt your recruiting processes to bring visibility to these unseen workers.
