Business leaders’ breakfast: hiring with purpose

September 19, 2023 @ 7:00 AM - 8:45 AM

You’re invited to this free breakfast to learn about how your business can hire the right people.

Truett Cathy, the founder of Chic-fil-A, has said: If you hire the “right people again and again, you will strengthen your culture over time.” We agree, hiring with purpose makes all the difference. Being able to identify whether a potential employee is values-aligned to fit your organizational culture and has the essential characteristics needed to be successful in the role is critical to successful hiring. We will explore the principles and steps of purposeful hiring, learning from a panel of business leaders who are leading the charge in their approach to talent selection. Join us for insights from Gina Breslin and Josh Keefer of North Group Consultants as they explore this topic, followed by a panel discussion.

Gina Breslin grew up in a family business of successful diversified holdings and had varied responsibilities through which she learned the team insights, intuitive decision-making and entrepreneurial spirit that propel businesses forward. She has been employed with North Group Consultants since 2010 and serves primarily in the firm’s Hiring & Talent Selection services. Gina holds a bachelor’s degree in education from Eastern Mennonite University. In 2021, Gina was recognized as a Woman of Influence by the Central Penn Business Journal. She serves on the Board of Jubilee Ministries and the Strategic Planning Team at Neffsville Mennonite Church.

Josh Keefer has a passion for caring for people and a diverse skillset that stems from a background in nonprofit leadership, business, ministry, and real estate. He holds a B.S. in Business Administration from Elizabethtown College and, most recently, served as VP of Global Development at an international nonprofit. Josh joined North Group in 2017 and values walking alongside leaders as they realize the effectiveness of an empowered team to achieve a common goal. An active member of the local community, Josh has served on numerous boards and was recognized by the Central Penn Business Journal as a “40 Under 40” leader.
