If there is one common pain point that every HR and talent professional is facing right now, it's the fact that we are all struggling to find enough talent to help our organizations grow and be successful. We are in a unique period of time where demographics are working against us, coupled with a growing economy. This adds up to more jobs than available workers. 

So, what do we need to do!? 

That's the question that will be answered by our two recruiting experts and popular HR speakers and thought leaders, Tim Sackett and Kris Dunn.

He’s a VP-of-HR type who has led HR practices in Fortune 500s and venture capital-held startups, and believes that the key to great business results is to get great people, then do cool stuff to maximize their motivation, performance and effectiveness once you have them in the door. As it turns out, that’s his simple definition of talent management.

As a result of that commitment, he’s been named one of the Top 100 Influencers in the World of HR and a Top 25 Digital Influencer in the HR and talent management communities.
