Snagajob’s 'Hire Minds Summit' to Deliver Hiring Expertise

The HR executives and operations professionals who lead America’s hourly workforce will gather to share best practices focused on attracting, hiring, and retaining the best employees during Snagajob’s fourth annual Hire Minds Hourly Hiring Summit, which will be held April 21-23 at the Lansdowne Resort in Leesburg, Virginia.

Hire Minds will be headlined by keynote presenters Chester Elton, bestselling author of “The Carrot Principle” and “All In,” as well as Jay Goltz, an author, entrepreneur and New York Times “You’re the Boss” blogger.
 
Additionally, more than 20 thought leaders from brands such as Starbucks, Chipotle, AutoZone and Build-A-Bear will speak on topics including the benefits of promoting from within, optimizing technology within the hiring process, and how to best manage high-volume recruiting for the summer and other scenarios. Panelists include QSR Magazine Editor Sam Oches and Victor Fernandez, Executive Business Analyst for People Report, which provides workforce intelligence for the service sector.
 
“Nothing else like this exists today in the industry,” says Jason Hamilton, vice president of marketing for Snagajob. “While hourly employees dominate America’s workforce - boasting about 60 percent of all workers or 70 million Americans – there are few opportunities for those who employ these workers in the restaurant, retail, and other industries to get together and learn from each other. While Snagajob organizes Hire Minds, the content is really shaped by the attendees.”
 
Hire Minds’ mix of keynote speakers, break-out sessions, and built-in networking time is designed to help attendees relax, refresh, and recharge. Limited spots remain for the in-demand hourly hiring summit.
