"Although it's generally accepted that the most important corporate resource over the next 20 years will be talent, it doesn't necessarily have to be the resource in shortest supply," said Allan Schweyer, HCI's President & Executive Director. "Peter Cappelli, a true innovator in talent management, will demonstrate how organizations can gain competitive advantage."

In addition, he has been a staff member on the Secretary of Labor's Commission on Workforce Quality and Labor Market Efficiency, a member of the National Academy of Sciences Committee investigating changes in occupational structure and the changing educational system in the U.S., and Co-Director of the U.S. Department of Education's National Center on the Educational Quality of the Workforce (EQW).
Cappelli has received numerous awards for his research, writing, and teaching. He is the author of the highly acclaimed book "The New Deal at Work: Managing the Market-Driven Workforce."
