Raise the Bar and Hire the Best Talent using I/O Psychology

Every talent acquisition leader knows interviewing, metrics, branding, and internal mobility are important factors in an over-all TA process.  How do each of these become even more powerful when an I/O Psychologist participates in their strategy?

In this interactive workshop, Dr. Mia Mulrennan will share how taking into account aspects such as human nature and optimism into your talent acquisition strategy can help attract and recruit the best talent, protect your brand, and proactively find solutions to challenges before they arise.

Handouts and action plans will be available to all participants during each of the four parts of this interactive workshop so that attendees can develop and bring back to their organizations real plans to evolve their TA practices.

Led by Dr. Mia Mulrennan, I/O Psychologist, President and Chief Motivations Mapper of Rave-Worthy
