    “Hire Engagement”: Take the Guesswork Out of Recruiting to Boost Engagement from Day One!

    Since 1994 Shira (Harrington) Lotzar, Chief Engagement Officer of Purposeful Hire, Inc., has been serving the employer and job seeker communities through a range of recruitment, career coaching, outplacement and diversity services designed to create and grow highly engaged workplaces.

    We’ve all met highly engaged employees - those rock stars who blow your performance metrics out of the water. They love coming to work; they give discretionary effort and are quickly tapped for promotions. News flash: That engagement starts sooner than you think… even before day one.

    Getting people on “the right seat on the bus” should be baked into your recruiting process, not your latest engagement program. Why? Because that’s when you can determine whether the candidate truly wants the job in the first place. Sounds obvious, but too often we focus on skill alignment and culture fit and gloss over a candidate’s career motivators. This fatal recruitment flaw can lead to a mismatch, which can quickly spiral down the path of disengagement.

    In this paradigm-shifting program, you’ll learn how to leverage “Passiontivity”, a proprietary tool that will revolutionize your recruiting so you can engage candidates even before they start.

    Learning objectives:

    • Understand the importance of career motivation during the hiring process
    • Explore a unique tool that assesses career fit and core competencies simultaneously
    • Learn how to leverage this tool as part of a total employee engagement initiative

    Registration is now closed.  Please email Suzanne for space availability.

    Because of the festive nature of this event, there will be no webinar.  Come join us to ring in the holidays!!
