This is our 9th year hosting the annual TalentEgg National Recruitment Excellence Awards and Conference, but it was our first year hosting it virtually, and we gotta say — it was a blast!
On July 8th several top campus recruitment professionals from across Canada joined us on our virtual journey to discuss, share and reveal how COVID-19 has impacted the recruitment sector temporarily and in some cases, for good. Attendees got the chance to hear about new virtual on-boarding methods, and new virtual strategies to attract the next generation of the workforce.
We also shared some incredible findings from the TalentEgg COVID-19 survey and annual student and new grad survey.
Finally after weeks of anticipation, we also revealed the winners of the 2020 TalentEgg National Recruitment Excellence Awards at the event. It was a tight competition with so many egg-cellent applications by leading Canadian employers, educational institutions, and career centres to look at. However, a select few stood out to our Student Judges for their egg-ceptional work and creativity.
Congratulations to the winners and finalists of the TalentEgg Awards and a sincere thank you to all the professionals who participated in this event!
