SPEAKER BIO   SPEAKERS  
For 20 years Matt Duffy has worked in the field of Talent Acquisition. Throughout his career he has interviewed thousands of candidates and has helped hundreds of organizations hire employees of all levels (executive, professional, administrative, etc.). Matt enjoys working with organizations on creating specific recruiting strategies to find talent that aligns with their business and culture. He understands the importance of finding the right “fit” – aligning skills, experience, and the candidate’s intrinsic and extrinsic motivators with the organizations need(s).
 
Matt leads the recruiting practice for Milestones HR where he offers various talent acquisition strategies including formulating a compelling job profile/posting, candidate pipeline development, competitive research, candidate profiling, interviewing, pre-hire assessments, background checks and references. He works with organizations seeking to fill specific roles as well as building out recruiting plans for forecasted hires.
 
Matt is a strong proponent of leveraging technology in the recruiting process where he has experience with multiple applicant tracking systems and leverages numerous existing and emerging recruiting tools/resources. He has also seen technology inhibit the human side of hiring, resulting in a poor hiring process and damaging the candidate experience – and ultimately the organization's brand. He understands the importance of focus, communication, and follow through when engaging potential employees.
 
In addition to leading the recruiting practice for Milestones HR, Matt is the President of Wisconsin Recruiters, a networking and professional development organization for Human Resources and Talent Acquisition professionals throughout Wisconsin. He also sits on the Board of Directors of Junior Achievement Dane County and on the planning committee for Food for Kidz, a local non-profit that has packaged and distributed over 2 million meals worldwide since its inception in 2006.
 
Matt was born in Connecticut, grew up in Massachusetts and Minnesota, and lived in Colorado for several years before moving to Madison in 2000.  His family’s love of Wisconsin Badger basketball has cemented WI as our forever home.
