Pipelining - Moving from Reactive to Proactive
Building on their employer re-branding and new tagline “New Day, New Career…Who Knew?”, earlier this year JCPenney philosophically shifted its recruiting efforts to focus on building talent communities ahead of need. The intent was to move from reactively filling requisitions to proactively building relationships in anticipation of future need. Jason Leonard, Director of Recruiting,, will tell us how JCPenney has successfully incorporated this Pipelining approach into their business and how you can switch to a proactive approach in your day to day recruiting efforts.
