Washington Network Group Presents – Amazon HQ2 is Coming, Now What: Implications for Talent Acquisition Going Forward

Guest Event

25,000 new jobs are coming in Crystal City. And that’s just for Amazon. A massive workforce earthquake is about to hit the greater Washington DC region… Are you prepared? Will you be ready to compete with the world’s largest corporate recruiting function as the war for talent intensifies to a level never seen in this area before?

The time to start preparing for this intense competition for talent is now. In this lively, interactive workshop, you will learn the keys to optimizing your recruiting function – and how to position yourself – for the talent wars to come. Topics to be covered include:
• What do I need to start planning for starting today?
• What do I need to do as good as if not better than Amazon and my other talent competitors?
• How can I quickly evolve my recruiting function to optimize for speed, quality and diversity?
• The true keys to recruiting success (hint: it’s not tied to better compensation and benefits)
