Talent Acquisition & Retention Summit in Virtual Event,
April 27, 2020


Employee Experience: Is Your Company Living Up to Expectations?
Panelists include
Marina Musi, HR Manager, SquareSpace
Philip Bennett, Customer Service Operations Manager, Empire-Today
Sarah O'Melia, Instructional Designer, Serco
Stacy Leger, Talent Acquisition Manager, May Institute
Moderated by Melissa Morse, BLR

When we think of “employee experience (EX),” the number of years a worker has with a specific skillset comes to mind, but that’s not the case. In today’s candidate-driven market, EX refers to the experience you are offering employees that work at your company. By offering employees a favorable experience, you’re more likely to retain your top performers longer. But how do you go about offering a terrific EX? In this panel discussion, your leadership peers will cover the ways in which their company successfully implements a good EX and offer strategies for you to take home and try out at your organization.


Recruiting Strategies That Attract the Modern Jobseeker
Moderated by Megan Dean, Director of HR, Greystone Health Network

Gone are the days of classified ads and mailed in, handwritten résumés. The modern jobseeker is searching for and applying to companies that offer an experience where these candidates are the most: on their mobile devices. From mobile-friendly job applications to social media connections and everywhere in between, the recruiting game has changed—and in order to win the war for talent, you must change with it. Connect with your peers to discuss the strategies that have worked best for your talent acquisition needs and more, in this roundtable session.
