Shaking Things Up: How Toyota’s Business Transformation Fueled a Proactive Talent Strategy

In with the new, out with the old, said Toyota. To not only stay competitive, but to gain a competitive advantage, the company knew it had to position its business for the future: what will Toyota look like in 50 years?

The second step was infusing proactive collaboration and communication into every particle of the company to build an engaged employee and talent community.

Allison Lyons, Senior Manager of Talent Acquisition North America, will share her inside perspective on Toyota’s incredible journey to change things to its core -- from recruiting technology to candidate experience to brand communications – and how every transformation helped her team hit their 2017 hiring goal in 9 months.
