The Secret to Recruiting & Retaining the Best of the Best

The manufacturing industry relies heavily on Skilled Trade Workers, Engineers, and Technicians – three of the most difficult positions to fill today. With a shrinking talent pool and mounting industry recruitment challenges, the need for right-fit employees has become more important than ever.

Do you want hundreds of applicants rather than dozens? Do you want to make your hiring process exciting versus frustrating? Do you want people to apply without having to solicit those applications? Join Kinesis CEO, Shawn Busse, as he uncovers recruitment’s best-kept secret, including real-world success stories

In this hands-on workshop, you’ll:

• Understand the new dynamics of today’s recruiting landscape
• Learn why once-successful talent acquisition tactics no longer work
• Discover the secret to leveraging your brand as a powerful recruiting engine

Featuring a presentation on the Oregon Equal Pay Act of 2017 from Heyke Kirkendall-Baker, Employment Attorney at NW Employer Solutions.

The Oregon Equal Pay Act greatly expanded the state’s existing pay equity law to include an unprecedented ten protected classes, a prohibition on asking about applicants’ pay history, and it provides new remedies and damages for employees.  Are you, your employment forms, and your job salary setting methods in compliance with one of the most expansive new pay equity laws in the nation?  Will your organization be prepared to answer the question, is my salary equitable?  Learn what actions to take prior to the important effective date, January 1, 2019.
