Posted: January 12, 2013 | Categories: Info | Building Industry News | Customer Service

As home builders prepare to ramp up, what can they do to ensure they are attracting the best candidates, avoiding legal minefields and winning the game of growth through strategic acquisition? This will be critical to their success and a topic of discussion that we at JWilliams Staffing are passionate about! Our Founder and CEO, JoAnne Williams will moderate a panel discussion that offers valuable take-aways about recruiting, retention and more at this year's International Builders' Show (IBS), held Wednesday January 23, 2013 from 2:30 to 4:00 pm in the south hall, room 221.

 

This informative program, titled: 'Talent Acquisition, Hiring and HR Challenges for the 2013 Recovery'? is geared towards high-level executive builders and developers. The panel also features Gino Cesario, vice president of corporate and strategic services, Pardee Homes; Travis Gemoets, partner, Jeff Magels Butler & Mitchell and Stephanie Pearson, partner, Terra Search Partners.

Based on the idea that most of us subscribe to'”a company is only as good as its people, builders need to critically examine their long-term strategic plans so they can ensure they attract the right talent. As we move toward recovery, there is a 200 percent hiring increase expected in the home building industry in 2013. How can you ensure you're attracting the cream of the crop? What are the pitfalls in the process and how do you resolve them? How do you avoid legal minefields? How do you identify what exactly you're looking for in a candidate and craft the right job description? What are new recruiting methods and laws everyone needs to know? What about the dos and don'ts of interviews and salary negotiations? What roles do CEOs play? Panel members will answer these questions and more.
