NAS expert articulated strategies at AZ SHRM meeting.

Cleveland, OH (PRWEB) September 11, 2009 – Hiring freezes… Budget cuts… Human Resources professionals are facing a wide range of unique demands in the current economy. At the recent Arizona SHRM State Conference in Phoenix, Matt Kaiser, NAS Recruitment Communications Vice President and Talent Strategist, suggested this is the time organizations should be proactive in attracting quality talent.

In an informative and interactive seminar entitled “The Time is Now: Best Practices for Recruiting in a Challenging Environment,” Kaiser provided insight into tactics companies can use to entice prime candidates to respond to their culture and opportunities.

“With the shift in the market, the recruitment landscape has grown increasingly more difficult, and leadership is questioning the need for new recruitment strategies,” he said. “Many organizations are hiding from candidates during these tough economic times, but right now is the ideal time to attract them.”

Kaiser went on to say, “Building brand identity and candidate relationships during slower economic times will position a company at the forefront of their industry in the minds of top talent. And when the economy does start to improve, that company will be far ahead of the competition in the war for talent.”
