New legislation will greatly impact you—discover what executive research teams need to know now. The EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will go into enforcement on 25th May, 2018. This will impact all search firms that conduct any business in the EU. For executive research teams, it will impact how, when, and why you solicit, use, access, and store personal data, as well as determine legitimate interest and consent of candidates, sources, and referees. During this session, AESC will share with you up-to-the-minute guidance on how the profession is adapting to the new norm of widespread regulation.

In the past 15 years, internet recruiting has been dominated by professional networking sites, but changes are taking place in online candidate behavior and recruiters need to know how this is going to impact their profession in the near future. In 2018, recruiters need to know how to find and connect with candidates outside of the sites that they have become so dependent on. They need to know the next practices for sourcing and recruiting–best practices won't be enough anymore.
In this session, you will learn how to: Examine the changes taking place with professional networking sites; Show recruiters and sourcers the other options available for finding candidates; Fast sourcing ideas to make locating candidates off the beaten path easier.
Laura Stoker, AIRS
We all like to believe we are fair in our decision making. Bias, prejudice, and discrimination are all issues for other people. This interactive session challenges those assumptions. Unconscious bias specialist, Hayley Barnard, will help us start to identify how our brains might automatically filter out potential candidates without us being aware that we are doing so. You will leave with a number of practical tools to help you outsmart bias.
