Xref Gold Partners of the Not-For-Profit People Conference

Posted on 11 Nov 2016 by Mike Brett

It is with great pleasure that I announce Xref will be Gold Partners with the 2017 NFP People Conference on 21 & 22 November. This is a great opportunity for Xref and I cannot wait to present on the rigours of recruitment within the NFP sector and the importance of NFP HR teams leveraging HR technologies to achieve greater efficiency.

The Conference now into its 7th year is the leading NFP Conference of its kind in Australia and it aggregates more than 500 Talent and HR professionals from NFP organisations around Australia. It provides the ideal forum to discuss all topics HR and particularly how NFP organisations can source, train and retain the best talent.

In my experience, the NFP sector are industry leaders in their recruitment due diligence which is a testament to the passion that is within all these great organisations and the commitment to the people that they help. During my Xref journey, I have had the pleasure of  consulting with many great NFPs including Mission Australia, Life Without Barriers and Yooralla just to name a few and it has been extremely gratifying being able to improve their business practices. However, despite improvements within the sector the struggle to effectively and timely reference check candidates still plagues many NFPs, whom are more often than not reliant on dated manual processes.

If you are attending the conference and would like find out more then why not schedule a meeting with me directly on mike.brett@xref.com.au or 02 8244 3096.

I look forward to speaking at the People Conference and I hope to meet you there!

This event is open to all HR professionals and tickets are available here.
