Linking Recruitment to Business Strategy
Washington, DC (PRWEB) December 13, 2007
The Human Capital Institute (HCI), a global professional association and educator in talent management strategies, and Veritude, a leading provider of talent acquisition, consulting, and management services, announced today that the two organizations will jointly launch a "Linking Recruitment to Business Strategy" education and research track. The track is one of several topics addressed in HCI's Talent Acquisition community of interest, a community HCI considers essential to organizations seeking to build competitive advantage.
"Recruiting talented employees that drive business success is a key strategic challenge that company leaders must address with thoughtful plans and organizational readiness," said Allan Schweyer, HCI's President & Executive Director. "Any plan or process should begin with the understanding that today's recruiters must assume many roles."
The HCI and Veritude track focuses on critical areas to help leaders and practitioners think about talent acquisition as a critical component of the strategic planning process, and as a driver of bottom-line results. It examines the link between recruiting and business strategy, and shows how to move the recruitment function from a reactive to a proactive role that can take the lead in creating and implementing effective human capital acquisition practices. A panel of expert advisors explores current best practices and looks at the future state of talent acquisition, sharing information with human capital professionals through Webcasts, white papers, education, and other resources.
"In today's dynamic, highly competitive environment, a company's success is contingent on its ability to link employee recruitment to business strategy. We are pleased to support the Human Capital Institute's learning track in order to provide organizations with insight and information that can help them maximize their talent acquisition efforts," said Bob Lopes, president and CEO of Veritude.
On January 17, HCI's Linking Recruitment to Business Strategy education and research track will feature the Webcast, "From the CEO's Desk: When Recruiting Succeeds and Where It Falls Short." Register.
