So, what are proactive steps you can take on your end when communicating with your future employer? Join us for this free job seeker webinar, Effective Communication Strategies, to learn more.

Advancing Diversity & Inclusion Efforts in Your Organization


Diversity is not something new to the agricultural industry. Incredible advancements to the industry and mankind contributed by diverse scientists are held with the highest regard. Yet in a recent study by AgCareers.com, only 53% of participating agricultural organizations said their recruiting strategies were aimed at increasing the diversity represented in their organization. While this is not a problem, per se, diversity is important in every industry and in order for the best and brightest minds to succeed, attention should be paid to diversity and inclusion efforts. 

Attend this webinar to gain a better understanding of what diversity and inclusion looks like in the ag industry. You’ll be walked through steps to better increase your diversity and inclusion recruitment as well as retention efforts that can be implemented organizationally. Pre-approved for SHRM credit.

Fighting Unconscious Bias in the Workplace


Even the most ethical person harbors unconscious bias. What is unconscious bias, exactly? Take a look at the agricultural landscape. Unconscious bias has pervaded the industry for centuries by leaving most with a stereotypical image of agriculture. Despite best efforts to change that image, women and minorities are still underrepresented in the industry. 

 

In order to change that image, recruiters and human resources professionals are invited to experience this webinar. Better understand unconscious bias as well as how stereotypes factor in. Learn about ways to overcome unconscious bias as well as how to impact others. This webinar is a must for those seeking to continually promote diversity in agriculture.

As a manager or professional in human resources, you might think that only the candidate could use some pointers on the interview, right?

This webinar introduces better interviewing techniques and practices for new hiring managers, those unfamiliar with HR, and recruiting veterans. Examine signals and actions that can negatively impact prospective candidates. Consider new questions and devices to get the most out of the interviewing process. Pre-approved for SHRM credit.

Delivering a Meaningful Candidate Experience


The candidate experience can be defined in several ways, but in short, it consists of the engagements and interactions made with candidates during the recruitment and hiring process. These interactions, however small and by whatever means, all tally toward the candidate’s overall impression of an organization. A meaningful candidate experience can have a number of powerful effects to create lasting interest in your organization.

 

Learn how to create that coveted experience to benefit your organization in this webinar for recruiters, hiring managers, executives, and HR professionals. Regardless of the experience, your candidates will tell others about it. AgCareers.com research will be shared in this eye-opening webinar inside the mind of the candidate.

In this webinar we will show you how to conduct a difficult conversation that leads to improved relationships and increased productivity. You will leave the webinar with a better understanding of yourself and others and increased confidence when holding a difficult conversation. Pre-approved for SHRM credit.
