Billy Beane to Keynote The Recruiting Automation Summit

March 27, 2018 at 5:00 AM by Team Entelo


Talent acquisition leaders have navigated many changes to this industry, just throughout the past decade – and there are plenty of HR conferences and events to prove it. But despite all the noise around talent acquisition, hiring and the talent wars, no single event focuses on the nexus of artificial intelligence, machine learning and recruiting.

As job boards, social recruiting, recruitment marketing and other buzzwords become best practices, find out what the next trends are before they become mainstream by registering for the Recruiting Automation Summit today.

What Does Baseball Have to do With Recruiting?

Billy Beane, executive VP of baseball operations for the Oakland A’s and subject of the book & feature film, “Moneyball” will kick off the day with a presentation about how he changed the way the MLB found and recruited top players. Beane’s approach, based on a data analytics methodology, led the Oakland A’s to six American League West Division Titles. That strategic methodology has come to be known as the “Moneyball” philosophy, named for the best-selling book and Oscar-nominated film and making Beane one of the most progressive and talented baseball executives in the game today.

Why Attend the Recruiting Automation Summit

Happening June 13 - 14 at the Village in downtown San Francisco, this event provides a unique forum for the top minds in talent acquisition, labor economics and artificial intelligence to come together and explore the implications of recruiting automation. Beane and other thought leaders will discuss various elements of recruiting automation such as how to improve hiring through automation, how AI will affect diversity and inclusion and the skills gap challenges facing recruiters today.
