Recruiting Reboot: Attracting Top Talent to your Organization

Cynthia McGovern
Orange Leaf Consulting


This session will discuss current recruiting practices and what we need to do differently to attract top talent both from our competitors and to our industry. What will we do when our seasoned escrow teams retire? Our customers are getting younger, but are we changing with the times? We don't often focus on internal development, and there is not a concerted effort to attract talent from the next generations. As an industry, this should be a top concern and any solutions will start at the ground level. Attendees will leave with tips and skills to apply immediately to their recruiting process.
