Feb 26, 2020

STILLWATER, Okla. (Feb. 26, 2020)–

Are you on the hunt for a new employee? Your ideal candidate is most likely employed elsewhere, and he or she has multiple opportunities to consider.

 

Because of this, you need to utilize some specific strategies to sell your company and what you have to offer. 

 

On March 10, as part of the Lunchtime Learning series co-sponsored by the Stillwater Chamber of Commerce and Meridian Technology Center, Dr. Rebecca Eastham will lead, “Recruiting Talent When the Labor Market Is Tight,” an engaging panel discussion, complete with retail, manufacturing, health care and tech company representatives.  

 

This Lunchtime Learning event will explore how local employers are reaching people when they have an opening, how different organizations play to different generations, how to write job descriptions that resonate, and how your business can make a positive impression on an applicant through the entire process.

 

Dr. Rebecca Eastham, Executive Director of Business and Industry Services at Meridian Technology Center, works with clients to identify training and development needs throughout their organizations and matches resources to assist in meeting those needs. She provides support in the areas of human resources, strategic planning, team building and organizational development.
