There is a lot of training to teach recruiters how to become better at recruiting, but there is a significant educational void for professionals seeking to become leaders. The STARoundtable Academies are an important professional development resource that can significantly fill that void.
Long Beach, Calif. (PRWEB) June 2, 2008
The Strategic Talent Acquisition Roundtable (STARoundtable) today announced its 2008 schedule of Corporate Recruiting & Staffing Leadership Academies. This fall staffing and recruiting professionals seeking to improve their leadership skills will have three opportunities to participate in the highly specialized educational workshops at one of the nation’s premier universities. This year’s schedule offers the following sessions:
- Los Angeles: Tuesday, Sept. 30, 2008 - Pepperdine University, Westside Conference Center (Culver City)
- Chicago: Tuesday, Oct. 7, 2008 - University of Chicago, Graduate School of Management, Gleacher Center (Downtown Chicago)
- Orlando: Monday, Sept. 22, 2008 - University of Central Florida, Rosen College of Hospitality Management
All workshops begin between 8-8:30 a.m. and conclude at 5 p.m.
During these full–day intensive workshops recruiting and staffing professionals will learn and discuss such critical topics as: best practices for organizing, managing, motivating, measuring and leading a recruiting and staffing team; metrics executives and hiring managers care about the most and how to interpret and implement them; how to translate data from workforce planning into staffing strategies; and learning how to build a consultative recruiting culture.
Each Leadership Academy will be co-lead by three principals from Riviera Advisors, a premier global human resource consulting firm. With a combined 50-plus years of real-world experience, that involves leading and managing corporate recruiting functions, these uniquely qualified experts will share their own successes and failures, while also providing proven solutions for today’s recruiting leaders.
“There is a serious gap in professional development opportunities for professionals who will be asked to lead or are already leading staffing and recruiting functions at their organizations,” said Jeremy Eskenazi, principal of Riviera Advisors. “There is a lot of training to teach recruiters how to become better at recruiting, but there is a significant educational void for professionals seeking to become leaders. The STARoundtable Academies are an important professional development resource that can significantly fill that void.”
Each workshop uses a module format. Some modules are presented seminar style, while others are roundtable discussions. With small groups of 30-50 professionals per session and with the input of Riviera Advisors’ experts, the Academies naturally create dialogue between leaders, as well as extensive opportunities for an exchange of ideas and tabletop discussions.
The program has been approved for 6.25 recertification credit hours towards PHR, SPHR, and GPHR certifications through the Human Resource Certification Institute (HRCI).
The tuition for participation, which includes breakfast and lunch, is $995 per person. Space at each Academy is limited and discounts may be available for participants.
