“Selecting the right-fit employees and maximizing their potential.”

It’s the SnagAJob.com mission statement and the theme of Hire Minds, the hourly hiring summit we kicked off this morning at the Kingsmill Resort in Williamsburg, Va.

Hire Minds is the second annual gathering of experts in the hourly recruitment and retention space. The two-day event is a comprehensive dialogue on industry innovation and best practices. But it’s so much more than a conference aimed at improving the hourly industry’s hiring metrics and bottom line. Hire Minds is also an altruistic experiment aimed at enhancing the lives of the 70 million Americans powering our economy. America’s companies don’t just want the best employees – they recognize the value of bettering their lives.

Here is a snapshot of a few of the sessions taking place over the next few days:
