Bill Boorman: Recruiting? Get over it.
Most organisations still hire the way they always have. Ok, theres a bit of technology speeding a few things up, but have we really just automated the things we don't do that well manually? More admin than intelligence? In this session Boorman looks at why the future of Talent Acquisition lies firmly in HR. Job brand over employer brand, where learning and development and talent acquisition must be a single function. It is controversial. You wouldn't expect anything less.

Leandro Gomes da Silva: The effects of relocation stress on international talents
14:50 - 15:10
Breakout

The effects of relocation stress on international talents
In the current Dutch labour market it is increasingly difficult to find the right talent. Companies are in fierce competition with each other for highly-skilled candidates and are forced to think outside the box and identify new ways of finding and acquiring talent. One of those ways is to hire international talents outside of the EU. Most companies regard these processes as lengthy, time consuming and complicated. They offer basic relocation assistance oftentimes in the form of a relocation budget. Despite acknowledging that moving to a different country is a life-altering event, they tend to underestimate the impact relocation has on their new employee. Anytime people face change, that is more often than not an inherently stressful experience. During this presentation, Leandro will explore this topic. He will discuss the Do's and Don’ts of hiring internationally and he will share his success stories and pitfalls. Also, he will advise on how to prepare for international hires to ensure a smooth and soft landing in the Netherlands and your company.

Title: Why bother with inclusion?!

Organisations spend millions of Euros each year on Unconscious Bias training, yet very little is being achieved to move the needle when it comes to Gender Equality, BAME and LGBT inclusion - people with disability are often overlooked or turned away for being a too challenging for employers.

Understand the need for a Shared Vision for Inclusion Why simply hiring diverse talent won't work if the organisations culture isn't fit for purpose.
