Washington, D.C (PRWEB) June 1, 2006
The Human Capital Institute (HCI), a global professional association and educator in talent management strategies, and Padgett Performance Group, Ltd., a provider of assessment solutions, announced today that Padgett will support HCI initiatives as a global underwriter, helping bring the latest human capital education, metrics, and tools to leading corporations.
Padgett Performance Group, along with four other innovators in talent acquisition tools, software, and services, is underwriting HCI's new seminar, "Talent Acquisition Through Innovation: Early Adopters Will Win the War for Talent," which will launch with a pilot session in Boston on June 28 and continue on to other major markets through the second half of the year.
The "Talent Acquisition Through Innovation" seminar will share best and next practices in talent acquisition, providing attending human capital management professionals with the insight and information they need to address their organizations' needs in a tightening labor market.
As a result of the agreement, HCI will also provide corporate membership, with associated education, resources, and tool sets, to Padgett's employee base and selected Padgett client companies.
In addition, HCI will make its own members and affiliates aware of Padgett Performance Group's tools and services as next-practice options for managing talent.
"The affiliation between HCI and Padgett Performance Group enables us to provide more organizations with the tools they need to win the war for talent," said Allan Schweyer, HCI's President & Executive Director. "We appreciate Padgett's support in this critical area."
"We're pleased to enter into an agreement that allows us to share our talent acquisition resources with more employers. We look forward to working with HCI," said Winfield Padgett, Principal of Padgett Performance Group.
ABOUT PADGETT PERFORMANCE GROUP
Padgett Performance Group, Ltd. provides organizations with essential tools to optimize their most important assets: human capital. Padgett offers an integrated combination of job success assessments and individual coaching that ensures predictors are understood, and then helps organizations optimize their talent acquisitions. Padgett utilizes the Harrison Assessments (HA) to predict job success. Unlike typical personality tests that "typecast," HA's structure and theory reveal balances and imbalances in behavioral traits. Questions are job-related, measure 130 traits, and are deception proof. Backed by 20 years of research, HA is proven as an effective decision-making tool--both to identify specific traits to be successful in any given job, and in its ability to evaluate traits against specific job requirements. Organizations depend on Padgett for insights in recruiting, predicting success for employee reassignments and promotions, employee and executive development, strengthening teams and committees, and implementing balanced scorecards.
