Secrets from a Recruiting Pro

February 19, 2020
11:30 AM - 1:00 PM

3125 S 72nd Street
Omaha, NE 68124

We all know that people are our best asset and differentiator in the architecture/engineering/construction (AEC) industry. And today’s brisk economy brings abundant project opportunities; many firms are searching for more people to execute the work. What’s your company’s plan, and could you use a little help in your recruiting and retaining efforts?

Join SMPS Nebraska as we dig in and hear best practices from an experienced industry recruiter. Susie Yager will draw upon more than 20 years of experience and share insights, practical tips, and provide examples of successful recruiting efforts. She will share insights about how to find candidates across all experience levels, provide wise guidance on effective hiring practices, how to “seal the deal” with a qualified candidate, and then how to keep new hires (and our entire team) motivated, challenged, and here for the long term.

Marketers and business developers often work hand in hand with human resources and leadership teams for recruiting planning, messaging, and communications. This program is designed for the SMPS audience to build expertise across the firm, and demonstrate that “Business Transformed Through Marketing Leadership” means helping recruit and retain employees. Bring your principals, human resources, and administrative teams so they hear from an industry veteran.
