Professional Emphasis Groups (PEGs)

Greetings Prospective PEG Member!

My name is Cara and I am the current leader of the Recruiting PEG. I have been involved with the Recruiting PEG since 2018 and took it over in mid 2019. My goal is provide you with relevant topics, insightful conversation, and meaningful relationships. This year will include topics such as employee resource groups, building a team culture, improving the candidate experience, working with universities, how to choose an HR system, and how benefits can be used to recruit and retain. I look forward to a great year and I hope to meet you soon!
