In his address, Archer will provide proven methods to help employers:
- Quickly and accurately identify viable candidates

- Determine which candidates possess the characteristics to make a meaningful contribution to the company
- Entice the ideal candidate to accept the position

“Recruiting talent in a tight market is as much an art as it is a science,” Archer said. “The art is to balance an understanding of the job, company culture and traits for success in order to recognize a good match. The science is dedicating time and effort to thoroughly screen, interview and evaluate each and every addition to the finance team. Remembering that every employee has a level of influence within an organization, businesses must strive to always hire competent professionals without sacrificing integrity, intelligence or ingenuity along the way.”
