Welcome to TeamKC

by Jessica Palm | Nov 20, 2014

For nearly a decade, KCADC’s Talent Recruitment Initiative has worked with Kansas City’s top employers to showcase the region’s lifestyle to candidates from around the world. 

We’re excited to announce that our talent recruitment program has continued to grow, doubling in popularity with more than 200 companies in the region using custom KC tools every day.


To accommodate this growth trend, we are officially launching TeamKC: Life+Talent. TeamKC brings all of the top tools and resources offered for nearly 10 years through KCADC’s Talent Recruitment Initiative under one brand. Starting today, look to TeamKC to bring the best of life in KC to your talent recruitment efforts. 

To kick off TeamKC in 2015, we’d like to welcome Kyri Gorges, college relations manager at Black & Veatch, as our TeamKC Advisory Board co-chair. 

Kyri will join Erin Roebuck, senior recruiter at Hallmark Cards, Inc., and TeamKC Board co-chair, in leading an exclusive group of 11 top employers in the area, providing guidance and insight into the trends and needs of KC’s recruiting ecosystem.

Our talent recruitment program is also broadening its reach, and we’d like to welcome all companies and recruiters in the area to be a part of TeamKC, the Kansas City region’s answer to the global race for talent.

As a part of TeamKC, you have access to events throughout the year showcasing the KC area, opportunities to network with recruiters and HR execs from across the region representing all industries, and gain insight into talent pipeline trends for Kansas City as a whole.

Please share the opportunity to join TeamKC with your networks, colleagues and friends.
