    As business recovers from the pandemic recruiting has re-emerged as the crucial HR issue of the day. Businesses of all sizes and industries are struggling to find the talent they need. The war for talent is likely back to stay for a while. The Federal Reserve projects unemployment rates in the U.S. at 4.5% by the end of 2021, and falling to 3.8% in 2022 and 3.5% in 2023.

    Listen to our panel discussion about these recruiting challenges and how companies can respond. Together we will look at:

    • The challenges we face in post-pandemic (and sometimes still remote) recruiting and interviewing
    • What companies are doing to respond to this talent crunch
    • The impact of the pandemic on recruiting budgets and how to build the business case for today’s recruiting challenges

      And more!

    We will hear from a panel of three HR & talent leaders from diverse industries:

    After graduating from Texas Tech with a degree in Sociology, Justin attended Southwestern Seminary in Fort Worth to study Marriage and Family Counseling. While attending graduate school, he worked part time at Cellular World in the accounting department. When a position became available in Human Resources it seemed like a much better fit for his background. Since he lacked formal training in HR, Justin decided to attend courses at UTA to learn the basics of the role so that he could pursue certification. Cellular World promoted Justin to HR Manager and then to Director of Human Resources. He has worked in a variety of industries include medical, food and beverage distribution, and is now the Senior HR Business Partner for Freese and Nichols, a civil engineering firm based in Fort Worth. His primary focus is to enhance the candidate and employee experience throughout the lifecycle of their employment. This includes areas such as employee relations, training, HR technology, and employee engagement. From 2017-2018, he was blessed with the opportunity to serve as the President of Fort Worth HR. In 2019 he was recognized by the Fort Worth Business Press in their Top 40 under 40 program.
