Talent Acquisition in Turbulent Times– “Level the Recruiting Playing Field”

Christi Schreyer, Co-Founder and Principal, Instigate, Inc.


Rapid advancement and increased access to recruitment 2.0 resources is helping to “level the playing field” for top talent.  Now more than ever, small and medium sized businesses can compete for top talent without the budgets, time or people that Fortune 500s have at their disposal. Learn how you can make the most of your recruitment strategies by exploring the essentials of employer branding, social networking and recruitment metrics.  By the end of the session, attendees will understand the linkage between: Employer Branding – candidate’s are consumers, what is your recruitment process telling them?  Social Networking – strategies that are easy to manage and give you reasonable control over content/message. Recruitment Metrics – data that can take you beyond cost and time measurements providing your recruitment road map.

For more than 15 years, Christi Schreyer has been helping businesses maximize their staffing and recruiting resources.

As the co-founder and Principal of Instigate, one of Minnesota’s leading human-capital-management firms, Christi strives to “level the playing field” for companies who are challenged to compete for talent without the budgets, time or people that Fortune 500s have at their disposal.  Making the most of technology and Instigate’s highly efficient approach to recruiting, Christi’s clients are able to land top talent, measure success, establish their own employer brand, and boost hiring manager satisfaction.

Prior to founding Instigate in 1999, Christi played a critical role in talent acquisition for Wilson Learning. Before that, she executed nearly every HR function as a specialist with Campbell Mithun, helping them grow into one of the top ad agencies in the country.  Her HR career was launched with JFA, a national HR consulting firm specializing in total reward strategies and compensation.

Christi mentors HR professionals through TCHRA and has been active with SCORE, Development Corporation for Children, and the St. Paul Chamber of Commerce.  Christi holds a B.S. degree in human resources management. She is a member of SHRM, HCI, HRP-MN, TCHRA and NEM-HRXchange.
