SOME TOPICS TO BE TACKLED AT #SOSUEE

At #SOSUEE we will set our gaze on the whole talent sourcing ecosystem with a particular focus on the issues and challenges faced by sourcing leaders and practitioners in Europe. We will set our eyes on emerging trends and the road ahead for sourcing.  We will look at new tools and technologies, techniques and best-practices, and will decipher the ever changing behavior of talent. Delegates will develop a big-picture view of talent acquisition and the tactical nous required to be an agent of change.

Once again we will cover all aspects of sourcing in a way that #sosu is well known for – an uncompromising dissection and analysis of all things sourcing in Europe
