The HR Management Institute (HRMI) East Conference took place in February and the Getting Hired team was excited to attend for the first time this year.
Participants gained insight into some of the most pressing issues surrounding HR management in 2018. HRMI Conferences are invitation-only, making the event an exclusive gathering of some of the most influential leaders in HR.
An opportunity to deliver change within your workforce
With topics ranging from strategic leadership and employee experience to innovative hiring practices, the agenda was packed with insightful presentations.
Our team spoke with attendees throughout the three days of the conference about the importance and high value of hiring individuals and veterans with disabilities within their workforce.
Don't get left behind on the journey to inclusive hiring
With over 175 clients, organizations are investing in Getting Hired to learn how to be inclusive in their hiring practices and ensure they're casting their sourcing net to include underrepresented groups of talent.
We've seen numerous cases where a commitment to diversity hiring added significant benefits for companies, with industry sector leaders like the Kellogg Company and Microsoft investing in inclusive hiring programs and employee engagement initiatives.
Inclusive hiring programs in action
The Kellogg Company typifies this desire through its ongoing Kapable initiative - an employee resource group (ERG) designed to ensure the Kellogg Company offers a welcoming and inclusive environment for all current and prospective employees.
Microsoft too is committed to inclusive hiring, with its ongoing Autism Hiring Program giving individuals with autism the opportunity to showcase their talents and learn what it is that makes Microsoft an employer of choice for this group.
