    Beyond a roll of dice: How to increase your odds or recruiting and hiring the ‘right’ person. As our unemployment rate continues to remain low in Western Kansas, employers must continually think outside the box on how to recruit and retain qualified people. What makes your company attractive to a prospective employee and how are you getting noticed? Join us to discuss strategies for recruiting at the January SHRM meeting.
