Recruiting and Onboarding at SuccessConnect 2014: A guide to get the most out of this year’s sessions


Are you a recruiting or onboarding specialist and want to know how you can get the most out of the SuccessConnect 2014 conference, /wp-content/uploads/2014/09/lightbulb_532216.jpg
happening in Las Vegas from September 9th to the 11th?

We have two days packed with great content in the Recruiting and Onboarding track. I put together this post to help you pick the sessions that are right for you and your needs. One of the best opportunities at SuccessConnect is to learn from your fellow practitioners. We have asked some of our most successful customers to share their stories.

We are starting the breakout sessions on Wednesday with a highlight: “Boosting the talent community and the hiring success at Time Warner Cable”. Travis Triggs will share how Time Warner Cable uses analytics to better target their recruiting marketing initiatives, talk about the success rate of social referrals and when and how candidates interact with them from their mobile devices.  Travis also has interesting stats that will be sure to spark new ideas for your sourcing initiatives. If you want to take your recruiting marketing efforts to the next level and learn about the many possibilities this is the right session for you.

Right after lunch there is more food for thought; Sean Junor will talk about how “Cameco streamlines global recruiting and succession management” . Breakout Sessions – SuccessConnect 2014. You will learn about the challenges Cameco was facing, how they built the business case and what was in it for the key stakeholders. The lessons learned will help you in your quest for integrated, successful talent acquisition.

Do you want to know “How to build a recruiting system you can love: Love’s invests in its people, values, and future”? Then come to this presentation where Love’s Travel Stops & Country Stores and 3D Results reveal what they have done to assemble a dream team and build a dream system. You can also find out how to improve your acquisition processes and learn what Love’s plans to do with SuccessFactors Onboarding.

There is another interesting session you don’t want to miss: “The recruiting journey: Best practices from click to hire”. We brought together two of our customer value experts leading an in-depth discussion on both best practices and the value of SuccessFactors Recruiting with Shawn Richardson from TransSystems, who will add insight on the efficiencies they realized and
benefits they gained.

Are you wondering how to “Connect the dots: Lessons learned from integrating SuccessFactors Recruiting and Onboarding with multiple vendor solutions”? In this insightful session you can find out how CenturaHealth, a leading healthcare provider, and Deloitte accomplished to create a one-stop-shop for candidates from first contact to onboarding, the challenges they were facing and how they overcame them./wp-content/uploads/2014/09/connect_the_dots_532263.jpg

Not only will you learn how SuccessFactors Recruiting and Onboarding will help you with your sourcing and new hire needs but you’ll also get a brief introduction what our cloud services team can do to help you get going in record time.

In “SuccessFactors Recruiting and SuccessFactors Onboarding: The road ahead” our head product managers Brenda Reid (Onboarding) and Peter Baskin (Recruiting) will share the roadmap with you and answer questions. This is your chance to hear it from the horse’s mouth!
