2019 marks the eighth edition of our annual TalentEgg National Campus Recruitment Excellence Awards and Conference, and we must say that this was our best one yet!
On June 19th, campus recruitment professionals from across Canada gathered at the Globe and Mail Centre in Toronto to celebrate the best in the industry. Attendees got the chance to hear exclusive insights on campus recruitment and learn about cutting-edge strategies for connecting with today’s tech-savvy students and new grads.
Among our lineup of expert panelists and speakers was author, speaker, and behaviour-change specialist Gregg Brown. His keynote speech, “Ready…Set…Change AGAIN, Building Change Resilience in HR” was a fabulous way to inspire attendees to change their mindset in the workplace, and set themselves and their recruits up for success.
We were also so pleased to announce the launch of our two new products: TE University, our brand new eLearning platform and TalenEgg Candidate Video Showcase – coming Fall 2019.
“This was our first year attending the TalentEgg conference and it was awesome – it was so great to connect with many industry professionals and learn a lot more about campus recruitment and what other organizations and companies are doing to really attract students to their organizations. We’re getting really excited about campus season and prepping for the fall of 2019 so we look forward to seeing all of the students and new grads and co-ops out on campus in the fall.”
– Carly Suter, Campus Recruitment Coordinator, Intact
