Arbita's commitment will enable Future of Talent to broaden their membership base, add new programs and expand their focus on emerging issues in talent management, employee development, retention and recruitment.
"Our support for the Future of Talent Institute is grounded in our commitment to the recruitment industry," said Don Ramer, Founder and CEO, Arbita. "Even in the most challenging times, good companies plan with an eye on the future. Among other important outcomes, our partnership with Future of Talent will help our clients and the broader recruitment community better understand the impact of today's economic condition on their current and future recruitment strategies."

The Institute also commissions independent research, conducts surveys, and involves people globally in discovery. The organization brings together individuals representing myriad industries and geographies to explore issues impacting all facets of talent management.
The goal of Future of Talent is to help talent and business leaders develop holistic, actionable and effective roadmaps for attracting, developing and retaining their current and future workforce. The organization's cornerstone event –The Future of Talent Retreat - is a well-known and prestigious, invitation-only annual retreat for a small group of leading Talent Management practitioners. However, Future of Talent also offers custom on-site workshops, individual consultation to CEOs and talent leaders, as well as consulting and research services.
The partnership between Arbita and Future of Talent will help the organization reach a broader audience while also developing new programs and content. The Future of Talent Institute’s members may also take advantage of Arbita’s consulting education services group (ACES) and the ground-breaking Recruitment Genome Project.
"In these challenging times, we can provide companies with early insights on employment, demographics, workforce attitudes and others issues so they can make faster and better decisions about talent and talent-related issues," said, Kevin Wheeler, Founder Future of Talent. "Our partnership with Arbita helps us to increase the impact of our work and share it with more people. We are extremely excited about this new phase of our development."
"I've seen the value first-hand as a practitioner from the first Future of Talent Retreat in 2004 and have benefitted from translating ideas into actionable results," said Susan Burns, Executive Director.
