We are all focused on game-changing innovation and keeping our organizations relevant in today's economy. What better opportunity than at Taleo World 2009.
Toronto, Canada (PRWEB) September 25, 2009
Thomas International, a global provider of objective management systems and work-based assessments tools, sponsored the opening reception for the Taleo World 2009 Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada on September 15, 2009.
Taleo CEO Michael Gregoire introduced Merle Ballaigues, President of Thomas North America, and praised the partnership between the two companies. In her opening remarks, Ballaigues said "We are all focused on game-changing innovation and keeping our organizations relevant in today's economy. What better opportunity than at Taleo World 2009."
Taleo's Talent Grid was introduced as three unique communities for users, partners and candidates to share ideas related to talent management. Thomas' participation in the talent grid enables Taleo users to explore the benefits of the Thomas assessment solutions for both Taleo Enterprise and Taleo Business Edition.
Taleo World 2009 exposed attendees to concepts and ideas that reflect the new age of talent where the business model is agile, flexible and collaborative, and human capital is recognized as an appreciating asset. Speakers and topics ranged from Pat Lencioni's ideas for improving teamwork and engagement to Robert B. Reich's brilliant insights into the economy and Charlene Li's innovative take on using social networking to attract and engage employees.
Thomas was also featured in one of the breakout sessions at Taleo World, presented by Paul Hamilton, Director of Talent Strategy and Programs at Rogers Communication, Inc. The focus of this presentation was how Rogers uses their recruitment scorecard to align strategy with execution, and how Thomas' pre-employment testing directly contributes to their success.
"We are extremely pleased with the return on investment that our clients are experiencing using the Taleo and integrated Thomas assessments," said Ballaigues, "and also the unique business opportunity that the Taleo Talent Grid is providing to clients, partners and candidates."
