Human Capital Institute Shares Details of Upcoming 2014 Strategic Talent Acquisition Conference

Organization to Showcase Innovative Strategies for Connecting With Talent and Ensuring Future Success During Event and in Related Talent Acquisition Strategist Certification Course

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 05/05/14 -- The Human Capital Institute (HCI), the global institution for strategic talent management, today announced details of its 2014 Strategic Talent Acquisition Conference. Taking place Wednesday, June 11 through Friday, June 13, 2014 at the Seaport Boston Hotel in Boston, Mass., the event will highlight best practices in talent acquisition to help employers source and hire the right candidates to drive their businesses forward.

Many organizations face a similar challenge: how can they find the talent they need today while ensuring tomorrow's success? Following years of stagnant hiring, competition for top performers is on the rise, and employers worldwide continue to report a lack of skilled talent and a struggle to fill key vacancies. To overcome these difficulties, employers must be able to leverage community intelligence and social media to build talent communities, collect and analyze candidate data and identify critical skill gaps as they seek to access the right talent.

During the 2014 Strategic Talent Acquisition Conference, HCI will gather some of the industry's most prominent thinkers and thought leaders to share their knowledge and best practices for recruiting in today's highly connected digital world. With a schedule of informative sessions designed to provide attendees with insight into talent acquisition's biggest challenges and share proven solutions for enhancing their recruiting efforts, attendees will learn the best methods for building a long-term sustainable pipeline of qualified candidates.

In addition to the conference's agenda of workshops and educational sessions, attendees will have the opportunity to hear keynotes from some of the most forward-thinking leaders in talent acquisition, including Mike Dallas, senior vice president, Human Resources Global Operations for Hewlett-Packard Company; Rebecca Costa, author and host of "The Costa Report"; and Sam Yagan, CEO of Match Group and co-founder and CEO of OkCupid.

"From connecting with talent where they are most likely to be found, to projecting a positive employer brand that encourages candidates to apply, employers must implement the strategies that enable them to capitalize on the power of social media to source active and passive candidates and to develop their employer brand," said Carl Rhodes, HCI's chief executive officer. "Through the 2014 Strategic Talent Acquisition Conference, HCI connects attendees with leading voices in the recruiting space who will share their valuable insight on how to improve their employer brand, build robust social talent communities and enhance the candidate experience. As a result, they can return to their organizations equipped with the best practices to find needed talent and close the skills gap."

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Smart cities have the potential to change our lives at so many levels for citizens: less pollution, reduced parking obstacles, better health, education and more energy savings. Real-time data streaming and the Internet of Things (IoT) possess the power to turn this vision into a reality. However, most organizations today are building their data infrastructure to focus solely on addressing immediate business needs vs. a platform capable of quickly adapting emerging technologies to address future ...
We are given a desktop platform with Java 8 or Java 9 installed and seek to find a way to deploy high-performance Java applications that use Java 3D and/or Jogl without having to run an installer. We are subject to the constraint that the applications be signed and deployed so that they can be run in a trusted environment (i.e., outside of the sandbox). Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rat...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
Digital Transformation (DX) is not a "one-size-fits all" strategy. Each organization needs to develop its own unique, long-term DX plan.

Forrester Research has predicted the IoT will become “the backbone” of customer value as it continues to grow. It is no surprise that retail is ...
