Think Global, Act Local: Tackling Boston's Unique Recruiting Challenges

  • As a hub of tech startup activity, more options are now available for a candidate considering relocating to Boston. How can you use that to your advantage to attract hard fought talent?
  • With the local tech scene in a period of reinvention, companies are forced to decide between Boston and the 'burbs. What are the pros/cons of each and how does this decision influence recruitment efforts?
  • Remote workforces work well for many, yet others still resist.  What drives the stark difference in philosophies? How can you influence your c-suite to make a change?

Deep Dive 2:
The Cross-Generational Workplace

  • We know the workforce is shifting with younger employees beginning careers every year. What are the biggest challenges in managing a diverse employee base?
  • Which people skills have proven to be most valuable in closing generational gaps to create maximum productivity?
  • What are the best strategies for tuning out the noise related to various generations and hiring people who can provide greatest impact to your bottom line?

Deep Dive 3:
Performance Management and Continuous Feedback

  • Many companies are ditching annual performance reviews for a continuous feedback model. Why? What are its pros and cons?
  • What's the role of senior management in PM and how do you earn their buy-in for a shift in strategy?
