SIA Executive Forum North America 2022

Faster, Better, Stronger: Leadership in a New World

WorkLLama was a proud, platinum sponsor for this year’s Staffing Industry Analyst’s Executive Forum North America, which took place in Austin, TX from February 28-March 3, 2022. This year’s theme of Faster, Better, Stronger: Leadership in a New World, offered key insights for staffing leaders under four specific tracks:

  • Leadership in a New World
  • Critical Segments and Topics
  • Digital Transformation and Technology
  • Solving the Talent Crisis

Our COO and co-founder, Saleem Khaja, had the opportunity to be a part of the SIA Panel Session What’s Working in Candidate Engagement, Retention and Redeployment? on March 2, 2022 at 10:45 AM-11:30 AM CT.  The focus was on talent acquisition technology and how it has evolved rapidly in the last several years and nowhere has it been more present than in the area of recruiting, engaging, retaining and redeploying talent to staffing clients. 

He also hosted an IIA (Ideas in Action) session Leveraging AI Conversational Bots for a Data-Driven, Holistic Approach to Talent Marketing on March 2, 2022 at 11:45 AM CT, featuring Michelle D. Sims, CEO of Year Up Professional Resources (YUPRO), and Manish Mohan, chief global talent officer at Kforce. They discussed how AI-driven, conversational bots are powerful tools employers need to deliver rich, authentic interactions with candidates in their talent communities. AI conversational bots take talent marketing to a new level, allowing companies to automate candidate engagement activities and ensure personalized, relevant, and timely interactions at pivotal points in the hiring process. Conversational bots can guide the candidate through the application process, promote job opportunities, highlight company culture and values, prompt questions, provide timely responses, and stay in lock step with the expectations of today’s talent.
