A few of us from Second City Works braved the late-September Dallas heat to eat some brisket, listen to country music, and attend LinkedIn’s TalentConnect conference bringing together over 4,200 recruiting, HR, and learning professionals. This year’s theme was “Better Together” and focused on topics including diversity and inclusion, employee engagement, and leading with humanity.
If you weren’t able to make it, no need to have FOMO. You can watch the keynotes to live vicariously through our experiences.
Here are our top 5 highlights from TalentConnect (in no particular order):
"Don't hire for culture fit. Hire for culture add."
"Lead with intention, insight, inclusion & inspiration. Be all IN."
“Start before you feel ready. Start simple. Be consistent.”
“You’re at the table for a reason. So, don’t waste your seat.”
Looking forward to the clam chowder, baked beans, and inspiring conversations next year at TalentConnect 2020 in Boston!
