The surest way to success for your architecture or engineering firm? Find and hire the best people.

A/E/C RecruitMAX shares the new strategies, initiatives, and processes successful firms are using to compete for top design and engineering talent. It's the essential learning event for firm leaders and HR professionals seeking maximum return on recruiting investment. 

In this robust economy, filling open A/E/C positions with top-level talent is a challenge. A smaller pool of productive designers, Project Managers, and specialists, and increased turnover, has firms scrambling. With industry powerhouses snatching up the rare gems, one thing is clear: The A/E/C recruiting landscape is changing rapidly. To succeed, your strategy must as well. A/E/C RecruitMAX, the only recruiting practices summit specifically for A/E/C principals and HR professionals, reveals how to:

  • Turn every designer, engineer, PM and technician into a proactive recruiter
  • Discover hidden candidate traits and characteristics that reveal true leadership skills and business acumen
  • Identify, approach, and steal talent from the biggest firms without breaking the bank
  • Avoid the common salary and bonus benchmarking mistakes that doom staffing initiatives
  • Reduce recruiting costs by creating longer-term relationships with your most important employees
  • Sidestep social media language that ruins your firm's brand and creates legal nightmares
  • Take a successful approach to diversity and disability recruiting
  • Save time and streamline your recruiting with an action plan linked to metrics and goals

Is your recruiting strategy aligned with the current talent market?

A/E/C principals taking a smart-growth approach to leveraging currently favorable economic conditions need to hire the most productive designers, engineers and technicians. But the collision of market forces and changing employer-employee relationships creates significant challenges and renders both traditional and fairly recent strategies obsolete. Those who fail to incorporate the newest best-practices will fail to remain competitive for top talent and struggle to meet financial performance objectives. 

Join your A/E/C colleagues and leading recruiting experts in Seattle on July 23-24 for this intensive immersion in sourcing, identifying, attracting, and landing the most important new contributors your firm will ever hire. You'll come away with a use-it-now action plan for breathing critical new life into your recruiting efforts and competing successfully on the global stage for critical pieces of your talent puzzle.
