About this episode

Guests: Alen Brcic, Novant Health; Joe Essenfeld, iCIMS

On this episode of the HR Happy Hour, recorded live at the recent iCIMS Influence 2019 event in Scottsdale, Arizona, Steve and Trish talked talent acquisition and modern TA technology with Alen Brcic, Director of HR Technology at Novant Health, and Joe Essenfeld, VP and GM of iCIMS. Joe was the founder of innovative recruiting technology company Jibe, which was recently acquired by iCIMS and he shared some of the history of Jibe and how their technology augments the iCIMS talent acquisition suite. Then Alen discussed some of the talent and hiring challenges at Novant, such as a chronic shortage of qualified nurses, and how innovative HR technology is helping their organization meet these challenges. Additionally, we talked about the importance of storytelling and connection to purpose in talent acquisition and how technology can support and enable recruiters in these efforts.


This was a fun and informative show, thanks to Alen and Joe for joining us and thanks to the team at iCIMS for having us at the event.
