NEO Employer Best Practices Report: Recruitment, Selection, and Onboarding


With historically low unemployment, employers are challenged to find their next new hire, or even more challenging, their next top-performing new hire. Join ERC, the creator and producer of NorthCoast 99, as we share over two decades of data on Northeast Ohio organizations that have successfully navigated the hiring journey.

From recruitment to selection and onboarding, this data-driven, interactive program will offer practical insights and solutions to the challenges facing multiple organizations and industries.

The program will be led by ERC’s Director, Consulting & Member Services, Susan Pyles, as she dives into the data presented in ERC’s NEO Employer Best Practices Report: Recruitment, Selection, and Onboarding, which will be distributed to attendees prior to the event.

The event will conclude with a panel discussion of representatives from several 2019 NorthCoast 99 winners. They will share their organization’s unique recruitment, selection, and onboarding practices.
