Participants' Feedback:

"Thanks for welcoming me to JHRS.  I really enjoyed the event yesterday, and hope to become an active member of the Society."

"Very informative session. Now I know how headhunters work."

"I wish there were more examples of doing cold calling...but we had a limited time."

Have you ever wondered why some of the most valuable people in your organisation decide to leave, even though they're genuinely happy in their jobs?

Even if executive search recruiters make your life easier by sourcing talent that you wouldn't otherwise reach, others in the industry will pick your organisation apart and undo your winning team. It's time to find out what you're up against.

In this seminar, you will learn:
  • Methods used by headhunters to gather information (orthodox and unorthodox)
  • How happy employees are convinced to work elsewhere
  • How your staff can be motivated to ignore headhunters
  • Why commonly used policies to block poaching are hurting your business
  • Recommendations on effective policies and training
