Jam Sessions_Final

October 14, 2015

You’re invited to the first NewCo Jam Session in DETROIT!!

We’ll be jamming on: Talent…..

As America’s Great Comeback City, Detroit requires a steady stream of top talent. The Motor City’s economy is rapidly diversifying—recruitment and retention strategies need to be as diverse as the rockstar employees they’re meant to woo.

Come learn how the coolest and most creative companies are using technology and a culture of innovation to put the right people in the right gig, for the long haul. Our panel of regional thought leaders will be riffing best practices for:

  •       how HR and marketing departments partner to score new talent,
  •       using smart benefits to win and keep the best and the brightest
  •       the small business’ effect—recruitment innovation and change at startup scale
  •       mission critical— why purpose is the new profit and what that means to talent

Whether you’re toying with the idea of your own startup or you already have your own team, you’ll walk away with a list of to do’s that you can put to work immediately.
