Khorus CEO Joel Trammell to Present Webinar on 10 Recruiting Rules for CEOs

CEO veteran to advise chief executives on how to build a world-class talent acquisition and development function

AUSTIN, Texas--()--What is one of the most dangerous mistakes a CEO can make? According to Khorus CEO Joel Trammell, it’s abdicating the recruiting function. During a free Webinar hosted by Chief Executive magazine on Thursday, May 7, he’ll discuss why CEOs must own recruiting and 10 rules for hiring the best talent.

Webinar Title: “10 Rules for CEOs to Recruit the Best”

Description: In many companies – especially large ones – the CEO is not a part of the hiring process. Recruiting is treated like a tactical fire drill rather than a core component of the strategic plan. During this webinar, Trammell will show that focusing on talent acquisition and development is a crucial role for the CEO and may also provide the greatest return on investment. His 10 rules for recruiting will guide CEOs as they carry out the critical responsibility of attracting, hiring, and measuring A-level talent.

Attendees will learn how to:

  1. Spot and keep A-players
  2. Set a high bar of consistency for hiring
  3. Look for disruptive events
  4. Cultivate unique talent sources
  5. Track recruiting performance…and more

Date and Time: Thursday, May 7, 1:00 p.m. EDT
