Greenhouse OPEN 2019 is coming back to NYC this year and will be a forum for insight-sharing on some of the most important Talent and business matters. Over two days on June 12 & 13, we’ll be at the Jacob Javits Center offering a variety of sessions to pique your specific interests and passions around Talent and its role in the greater business. The panels, case study sessions and interactive workshops will offer new perspectives from CEOs, hiring managers and Talent leaders, practical tips and advice, and exclusive hands-on experience. We also heard all of our attendees loud and clear on wanting even more and networking time during OPEN with some of the smartest leaders and practitioners in the Talent industry - you asked, and you’ll have even more of it this June.
