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."
