Transforming Talent Acquisition: A New Approach for Employers

The Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce (NKY Chamber) is shaking up the traditional way employers attract and retain talent with their upcoming sixth annual NKY Talent Strategies Symposium. Themed “Total Talent Transformation,” this half-day event aims to revolutionize talent acquisition strategies and workplace culture.

Instead of relying on outdated methods, the symposium encourages attendees to participate in lively roundtable discussions centered around job quality and workplace culture. The event kicks off with a keynote address by Dustin Lester, VP of Professional Services at Lightcast, who will share insights on closing the skills gap with long- and short-term strategies.

The symposium features a diverse lineup of roundtable presenters, each offering unique perspectives on talent acquisition and retention. Topics range from attracting, recruiting, and retaining employees with young children to improving employee retention and performance in economically diverse workforces.

This event is not just for large corporations; it is designed to benefit small business owners, operations and human resources professionals, and C-suite leaders from all types of organizations. The symposium is also approved for SHRM Continuing Education Credits, providing further incentive for professionals to attend and gain valuable knowledge.

Acknowledging that each employee has different desires and expectations from their employer, Nancy Spivey, VP of Talent Strategies, emphasizes the need for a personalized approach in talent acquisition. Instead of following a one-size-fits-all model, employers should develop employee-centered talent attraction, engagement, and retention plans for each individual hire.

Early bird ticket prices are available until February 9th, offering discounted rates for NKY Chamber members. After that, tickets will still be available, but at slightly higher prices. Registration is required in advance of the event, and interested individuals can visit NKYChamber.com/Symposium for more information and to secure their spot.
