The Best Recruiter Celebration recognizes the efforts of recruiters, their managers and their companies for incorporating the candidate experience into their recruiting efforts.
This year’s celebration will feature Susan LaMotte, SPHR founder and CEO of exaqueo (ex-ack-we-o), a workforce consultancy and creative agency known for building and executing research-based employer brands. Susan got her first W-2 at age 14 and hasn't stopped working or thinking about the way people work ever since.
A career HR practitioner, in the past two decades, Susan has worked inside and consulted for renowned global brands including The Ritz-Carlton, Princeton University, GEICO, Four Seasons, MedStar, Social Tables and many more. She’s known for her pioneering employer brand and social recruiting strategies. Susan has been featured in and written for publications such as the Wall Street Journal, Harvard Business Review, Forbes, the New York Times, Globe and Mail and The Washington Post. She's the author of two books including “The Right Job, Right Now” (St. Martin's Press), and has been featured in several more.
Susan has an MBA in Human and Organizational Performance from Vanderbilt University where she was a Dean’s Scholar. She also has an MA in Human Resource Development from The George Washington University and a BA in Communications and Public Relations from Virginia Tech. Known for getting more done in ten minutes than most people do all day, Susan’s work ethic is spurred by new music and a bit of Philadelphia-born honesty. She lives with her husband and daughter in Charleston, South Carolina.We celebrate our 2016 Best Recruiters in this music video »
