Top Resources TeamKC Recruiters are Using Right Now

by Addie Linn | Oct 12, 2020

Welp. It’s October 2020. 

 

Who would’ve thought?? Although we hoped we’d be back to hosting TeamKC Recruiter Roundtables in person by now, we’re finding so much value in our virtual connections with you, KC’s stellar community of HR and recruiting pros. 

At our latest virtual get-together, we once again got a sneak peek at the amazing tools local companies are using on a daily basis to recruit the best and brightest. As an added bonus, we heard an update from our friends at Charlie Hustle on their latest community focused effort, 1K for KC. Be sure to look into the different ways you and your company can help local KC families in times of need. 

As usual, the meeting was jam-packed with thought leadership, resources and helpful takeaways for bettering the talent community here in KC.
