RecruitCon 2018.

RecruitCon 2018

,

On May 10 – 11, Priority Staffing Group sent representatives from each of our offices to attend RecruitCon 2018. This conference was designed to teach groundbreaking strategies for staffing and recruiting.

Our goal is to learn as much as we can throughout the year to better service our clients. Part of this year’s conference focus was marketing to the newer generations of candidates, including Millennials, who now make up a large part of the working population, and Generation Z, who are just breaking into the workforce. In fact, 50% of the world’s current population is under 31 years old, which makes these two generations more important than ever to focus on in terms of employment.

 

By collecting the information needed to effectively hire and train these generations, we are able to take one step ahead of other companies who are hiring.

 

Three important takeaways: 

1) Keep hiring simple

2) Growth opportunities are a must

3) Flexibility is key

 

We pride ourselves on keeping up with the newest Human Resources trends to better service our clients. If you want more information on how we can help your business, reach out to any of our locations.

HR Tennessee 2017

Priority Group’s Heather Goines-Evans, COO, and Chris Nichols, Business Development, attended the HR Tennessee Conference and Exposition, hosted by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) from October 1 – 4. Being members of the Middle Tennessee chapter, MT|SHRM, Priority Group was happy to participate in this educational conference in Nashville.

 

MT|SHRM is celebrating their 50th anniversary in 2017, and had the opportunity to host this event, which was the largest TN state conference ever. Over 1,500 HR colleagues, exhibitors, guests and sponsors attended this year’s event.

 

With 78 sessions and workshops in six focus tracks (Business Management & Strategy; Talent Management; Compensation; Benefits; Legal; HR Technology), the conference offered many learning opportunities for Priority Group, so that we can continue to develop our organization in a way that helps our clients and communities.

“Attending this conference gave us the knowledge to deliver more practical solutions to our organization and stay on top of the latest HR developments,” Heather said.

 

The conference opened on Monday with a keynote delivered by Peyton Manning titled Business Lessons from the Gridiron. Other speakers included Dr. Michael Burcham, CEO of Narus Health; and John Daniel, Executive Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer for First Horizon National Corp.

“The keynotes were really informative,” Chris said. “Peyton Manning did a great job making the connection between managing a football team versus an organization.  Michael Burcham was outstanding as well in discussing How to Think Like a CEO.”

 

The conference as a whole was a great event for Priority Group. We are excited to attend the conference again next year so we can continually develop our Human Resources knowledge.
