Hiring Excellence in Technology Talent

Hiring Excellence in Technology Talent
Thursday, 5 September, 2019 - 18:00 to 20:00

The BTN brings you our latest international event in Munich, following on from the success of our event in June 2019 in Berlin with Zalando. Watch the video from the Berlin event here.

The event in Berlin brought about 3 key takeaways and for this panel-led session, we will be looking to build on those points and delve deeper into some of the challenges that organisations need to understand to encourage hiring excellence in tech talent.

  • Recruiters need to understand exactly what they're looking for within a role and how they search for the right people to fit the organisation's needs as well as wants.
  • Transparency is key as it creates a concept of trust between the organisation, employees and recruiters. If this is broken to start with retention will be difficult as employees may have been hired based on false pretences.
  • Continuous learning and understanding on the side of the recruiter are integral. By understanding the niche requirements of a team, organisation or role, the recruiter can create excellence in the way they hire.

How can you leverage the talent you already have internally to take advantage of digitally savvy employees and how do you integrate the tech talent into the core of your organisation as you strive to become digitally native.
