In today’s tough times, it’s easy — maybe too easy — to jump into action to address challenges in your hiring process. How do I fix this? What tech do I need to solve that? What will it cost? But none of these are the most important questions to ask. Rather, it’s this: Are you solving the right problem?

At ERE Digital, Sept 23-24, Jenny Cotie Kangas, director of digital experience and global talent acquisition at Regis Corp. (the parent of many salon brands, including Supercuts and Cost Cutters), will present “Stop Applying Right Solutions to Wrong Problems: Start Building Processes to Address Root Issues Over Symptoms.” Jenny will dive into:

  • Identifying whether you are addressing problems or symptoms related to achieving staffing goals
  • Developing processes and systems to tackle problems for more impactful results
  • Distinguishing between useful tools and mere Band-Aids when managing challenges
