Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
DETAILS: Alberta’s premier professional development and networking event, the 2013 HRIA Conference attracts more than 1,000 HR professionals for two days designed to promote new technologies, trends and best practices to empower businesses. For those in HR, the rise of social and mobile technology has changed the way potential hires receive and process information. As these technologies continue to improve and pervade personal and professional life, the HR industry moves toward a new era driven by visual social and mobile media. The shift to visual content means that companies must learn to show, rather than tell, the essence of their business to attract the right talent.
During his session, David Gardner, digital strategist, Western Canada for TMP Worldwide, will demonstrate how visual storytelling can benefit employment branding and talent sourcing strategies for companies in Alberta and beyond. Gardner will explain why companies should highlight who and what is behind their business and market how the company connects with the world at large to help recruit top talent.
Attendees of this session will learn why an integrated visual presence across social communications and mobile technologies is so important from a recruitment perspective, plus how to rethink existing recruiting strategies to place new emphasis on visuals.
HR and recruiting professionals interested in learning more about the impact and influence of visual storytelling in recruitment efforts in addition to new techniques for sourcing top talent are encouraged to attend Gardner’s informative session.
