NBCUniversal’s Executive Recruiting Team – Coming To Us Live…
Over a relatively short period of time, NBCUniversal has built an executive recruiting capability that is a leading example of how to establish and build an in-house team. Joerg Ziegler, Vice President, Executive Search of NBCUniversal, joined by Carl Bernadotte, Director of Executive Recruiting Research, will tell us about the tremendous contribution such a team can make at a large company, and hear about their plans for growth going forward.
10:30 am Break
10:45 am Onboarding Roundtable Discussion
Onboarding is of perennial interest, yet we don’t seem to really take it on and execute it fully. In fact, only 49% of our Benchmark Survey respondents address this at the executive level, and many of those programs are limited. However, we may finally have a new, breakthrough model: Stephanie McMurrey, of Qualcomm, has a unique role as the company’s Director of Enterprise Executive Recruitment and Assimilation, and will join us to tell us about her new role and remit, as well as inspire us in a discussion of member practices around the integration of executive recruiting and onboarding.
11:45 am Raising the Bar for Diversity Recruiting
NBCUniversal established a Diversity Council in 2011 made up of leaders from across the company, charged with advancing the organization’s mission to become a model for D&I in the industry. Joerg Ziegler will share his recent presentation to the Council on his group’s activities and progress in this arena, and will further lead us in a roundtable discussion on innovative ideas to tackle this critical challenge for all of us.
