Panel Session: What COVID Forced Global Companies to Learn, and What Changes Will Stick
During the pandemic, TA leaders were forced to re-think almost everything they knew about recruiting. Now, as we begin to slowly emerge from the other side of the global crisis, many leaders plan to continue forward with optimisations in processes and productivity that were previously unrealised or simply not permitted. Join Chris Hoyt, President of CareerXroads, as he hosts a panel of four global TA leaders from Australia and the US who now celebrate some of the tough lessons they were forced to learn.
Getting the business to understand TA’s real value
The healthcare and social assistance sector is now the biggest employer in Australia, responsible for one in five new jobs created. At Life Without Barriers (LWB), getting TA right and delivering a positive experience is imperative to ensure Australia’s needs are met by our now famously coined profession – the “essential services worker”.

Taking the blinkers off: How Xero’s Talent Experience function is enabling their hyper growth
James will discuss how he and his TA teams have navigated the challenges of scale and will reveal how they have “taken the blinkers off” in building a feedback engine to help shape the next phase of growth.
Jim’s talent team, like many others knew how to search, asses and hire but it wasn’t until they adopted a creative and strategic communications approach that they dramatically improved their hiring velocity. It’s easy to believe we have the perfect job for someone but when you make that your communications approach and you yell your benefits and hyperbole at them, you set yourself up for failure. A well-told and honest story has a much better chance of building trust and succeeding.

The Fearless Forecast: The New Now of Work + Possible Futures
The pandemic has driven massive change in thinking and practice. What was evolutionary is now revolutionary. What was far in the future is now. Kevin, in his inimitable style, shall unpack all these and show what it all means to us in Talent Acquisition.
How TA can impact the success of diverse talent post-hire
The skills shortage has encouraged companies to diversify their pools and adopt greater variations of flexible work. However, to ensure these new hires thrive long term, employers also need to expand their perception and processes about how people match their best-fit jobs and the different ways of working. As the first stage in the talent lifecycle, Talent Acquisition is in a prime position to set the tone for how the organisation can rethink talent.
If 2020 was about unprecedented challenges and hiring turned upside down, 2021 is about reinvention and transformation. Post-pandemic, technology is now an expected part of the hiring process, meaning that being truly innovative in how your hire is about much more than what you use. As we all prepare for what our new normal is going to actually be, organisations need to consider how they’ll differentiate themselves, provide an outstanding candidate experience and drive better hiring decisions.
Something’s going wrong. More and more employers are claiming a commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), and yet progress remains slow, and companies are struggling to achieve the well-reported benefits of DEI. Thankfully, WORK180’s Angela McKenzie is here with the answer – and it’s simpler than you think.

Whether you’ve been hiring throughout the pandemic or are just now resuming hiring efforts , a game plan is crucial to your success.
In this short meditation, Rebecca will guide us through a meditation focussed on being kind and gentle with ourselves. A focus we need to have as we transition through times of change and still need to access our ability to stay focussed, calm and present.
