The job market is bananas right now!
Everywhere you look recruiters and talent professionals are talking about how hard it is to find good talent.
While this is going on, candidates out searching are saying how challenging the hiring process is and how hard it is to land a job.
What's up with that?!
We want to look into the current state of affairs when it comes to hiring and view this situation from multiple perspectives. What do recruiters and talent professionals want job seekers to know? What do job seekers want recruiters and talent professionals to know? We built this session with both perspectives in mind and the intention for this session is to close this gap.
Join us for this interactive discussion and connect with fellow your Culture First activities to make the world of work (specifically hiring) better!
Lead People Scientist / Community Engagement at Culture Amp
Workplace and Innovation Consultant
My Mission: To help the world work better by improving the places we work.
I am obsessed with how humans work, both individually and together in groups.
Given the percentage of our lives that is spent at work, I believe that the more connected to and inspired by our work and workplace we can be, the better we are as humans, and thus the more successful our organizations will be.
I work every day to improve the state of our workplaces by supporting organizations to leverage data in making more human focused decisions, that results in more engaged people and more successful organizations.
I am also highly focused on creating change one person at a time through building Culture Amp's Culture First community. Our goal is to build the worlds largest community of people, both online and offline, who believe that a better world of work is possible and are willing to take action to make this a reality.

Jessie Jacob is a culture consultant and innovation coach. After working at the Sprint Accelerator and for a couple of venture-backed startups, Jessie was inspired to create a workplace culture accelerator program called the Culture Lab where she helped teams to define and improve their cultures to significantly increase performance and engagement. She has helped a number of founders and executives to be intentional with their teams and workplace cultures so they can effectively scale. Jessie has recently worked alongside NY Times Best-selling author and successful entrepreneur, Diana Kander, where they help teams to tweak their existing habits to significantly increase performance and agility. Their coaching and facilitation allow teams to bring innovation and workplace culture best practices to hire, project management, iteration, and many other team functions. They’ve worked with large organizations such as Hormel Food and a government agency to adopt habits of innovation.
Her experience with organizations large and small has taught her a number of important lessons:
· Having a workplace environment where individuals can thrive is created or destroyed through culture or the team’s habits. A culture needs to be continuously nourished and there isn’t a one-time fix.
· Teams need simple tools and exercises to help tweak their habits, increase productivity, and get a team on the same page. Jessie has distilled lessons from her last 7 years working with startups and corporate innovation teams into simple, powerful tools for teams to apply.
· Successful team cultures can’t be copied and pasted. There are overarching best practices, but each individual culture is as unique as the individuals in the organization.
Senior Talent Partner
Founder & Coach
Recruiting is what I was meant to do. I've been lucky enough work in dynamic spaces that have allowed me to try on many hats in TA and HR - employee relations, social media management, onboarding, retention and operations. Some hats have fit better than others, but I'm most successful when I can recruit and continue to contribute to the retention, learning and development of that talent after they're in the door.
