Webinar Series: Winning the Recruiting War

Broadcasters need a strong talent acquisition plan for success in hiring and meeting revenue goals today and tomorrow. With unemployment at a low four percent, many broadcasters are challenged when trying to hire sales, management and engineering positions.

The OAB has partnered with Media Staffing Network for a three-part webinar series on how to win in the war for talent. OAB members receive access to this series  at NO COST as part of their OAB membership.

Newer generations of workers consider different aspects of employment vs. earlier generations when deciding to join or stay. Tenure of new hires will be shorter than seen in the past, causing more turnover creating a need for more frequent recruitment and hiring. There’s also the need for stronger engagement for longer retention of quality talent. The competition to hire quality talent is huge. Not only is it hard to hire, but any top talent will be contacted regularly by recruiters!

This webinar series will help you with all of the above obstacles. All three sessions can be found on-demand below.
