The Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) will hold a one-day event in Seattle designed for recruitment and talent management professionals and presented in partnership with the Puget Sound SHRM Chapters.
The SHRM Talent Symposium will take place at the Sheraton Seattle on July 15, steps away from the Pike Place Market and the Seattle waterfront. The program features two general sessions, two keynotes and six concurrent sessions on the day of the symposium, and an evening welcome reception July 14.
General sessions include presentations from:
“The goal of the panel is to talk about which talent acquisition strategies are faring best as candidate shortages emerge, and what recruiters should be doing moving forward to make sure they have access to the talent they need for their companies to stay competitive,” Lee said. Panelists include Thomas Darrow, SHRM-SCP, chair of the SHRM Foundation and founder and principal of Talent Connections and Career Spa; Danielle Monaghan, director of talent acquisition at Amazon; Cindy Songne, vice president of Hodes; and Peter Weddle, chief executive officer at TAtech.
At the keynote luncheon, Donna Morris, executive vice president of customer and employee experience at Adobe, will discuss reinventing performance management, and Steve Pitasky, executive vice president and chief partner (human) resources officer at Starbucks, will speak about creating a culture of value.
Other sessions will examine candidate experience strategy, the science behind great hiring and minimizing unconscious bias in recruiting.
