If you’re committing to your professional growth as a talent acquisition professional this year, there’s no shortage of options. You could seek inspiration from thought leaders and well-known practitioners. You might connect with your peers to share challenges and success stories. Or perhaps you’d like to attend a workshop for a deep dive on specific tools and tactics.

But why limit yourself to one single option? If you attend Open 2022, you’ll have the chance to do all this – and more. Consider this your official invitation to join us on May 24–25 for two full days of speakers, workshops and networking. Here are five compelling reasons to attend and use your L&D budget on Open 2022.

1. See inspiring keynote speakers

The mainstage lineup at Open 2022 includes bold keynote speakers who spark thought-provoking perspectives on important topics like behavior change, human connection and effective communication. Hear from renowned author and psychologist Daniel Goleman, Tony award-winning director and writer Rachel Chavkin and four-time Emmy-nominated actress, Emmy-winning producer, and prominent equal rights advocate and public speaker Laverne Cox. Big think talks and panels will bring relevant topics to our conference stage including diversity recruiting, automation and AI in hiring, Talent Maker relationships to support business success and more.

2. Participate in hands-on learning sessions

If you’re more of the learn by doing type, you’ll want to join one of the Grow with Greenhouse tracks. These workshops – available for both Foundational and Intermediate Greenhouse users – are hosted by the Greenhouse Customer Education Team. Want to get better at using Greenhouse and build your recruiting skills? Don’t miss these sessions, which will focus on topics like candidate experience, incorporating DE&I into your structured hiring and using reports to improve your hiring manager and recruiter relationships. Plus, your attendance at these workshops will earn you Greenhouse badges to strengthen your professional credentials.

3. Build your technical skills – and your tech stack

Wondering which tools and technology will set you up for success? At Open 2022, you’ll discover how your peers are gaining a competitive edge through strategic TA tech integrations and Greenhouse professional services. Hear from partners, Greenhouse customers and our Professional Services team to identify the most useful tools and tech strategies. You’ll walk away with a deeper understanding of how to optimize our Hiring Cloud and build your ideal hiring tech stack.

4. Network with like-minded peers

While we’re thrilled with our lineup of speakers, we also know that a lot of the magic at conferences comes from the connections you make with your peers. It’s empowering to hear from others who have faced similar challenges and share your own success stories. Whether it’s in a small group discussion in a workshop, shop talk over lunch or swapping notes at the attendee party, Open is a great opportunity to build your network and connect with other forward-thinking talent professionals.

5. Connect however you feel most comfortable

This year, you have the option to experience Open your way. Choose the Virtual experience to gain access to keynote speakers and all mainstage sessions and online networking opportunities from the comfort of your home office or your couch. Or, if you’re ready to join us in person at New York City’s brand-new Jacob Javits center, choose the All-access pass. This option includes access to all keynotes and mainstage speakers, plus hands-on trainings and live workshops, opportunities to earn Greenhouse training badges, entry to the party and more.

We can’t wait to welcome you and help you take your hiring to the next level at Open 2022. Save your spot today!
