Philadelphia (PRWEB) October 2, 2007
A growing number of global companies are acting on their vision of a global enterprise recruiting capability. What are they doing to turn that vision into reality, and how are they overcoming the obstacles along the way? The Newman Group, a Futurestep company and a leading provider of talent acquisition and management consulting services, will release a report on recruiting technology implementations by global enterprises as part of their presentation at the HR Technology Conference and Exposition in Chicago on October 11.
Companies cited in the report include a variety of industry leaders such as Accenture, Cisco, Clorox, General Motors, and Hilton Hotels Corporation. "Companies need to apply a high level of discipline to acquiring and managing talent, regardless of where their operations are," says Ed Newman, president of The Newman Group and developer of the report. "Companies are looking for ways to adapt to local and cultural needs while maintaining a consistent enterprise process. It’s exciting to see that they are overcoming challenges to implement global talent acquisition systems that meet those demands."
The presentation and report will explore three major types of approaches for large, complex implementations. First among them is the phased approach--a strategy that allows for rollout in one department, organization, or region at a time. The second approach is the "big bang" strategy, characterized by intensive planning and change management followed by simultaneous rollout of systems and processes across the enterprise. Finally, the report will explore the hybrid approach, a practical strategy that combines elements of the phased and big bang strategies.
"The report and presentation explore the challenges and best practices of global implementation through the experience of those who’ve been through the process," says Newman. "This is a great learning opportunity for anyone seeking realistic, practical insight on global talent acquisition."
The presentation, The Challenges of Implementing Recruiting Around the World, will be held on October 11, 11:00 AM - 12:15 PM at the HR Technology Conference and Exposition in Chicago. Conference information is available at http://www.hrtechconference.com. Representatives from companies cited in the report will be available for a question and answer session following the presentation. The report, Talent Acquisition–Best Practices for Global Implementation Success, will be provided to attendees at the presentation, and will also be available for download at http://www.tngconsulting.com/publications.
