2011 will be a pivotal year for the recruiting industry... talent acquisition is rapidly becoming one of the key strategic issues facing many companies (again)
Chicago, IL (PRWEB) June 18, 2010
Onrec Expo, the largest global gathering of corporate recruiting leaders, tends to be a leading indicator for future hiring activity. “It only makes sense, says RD Whitney, CEO of Onrec USA. “If corporations are looking to hire, they are more inclined to gather and learn about the latest innovations in the process of recruiting.” If the 2010 event is used as a barometer for hiring this fall, we are about to see a significant pickup in recruiting from corporations.
"The exhibit hall sold out so quickly, we had to go back to the convention center and request more space," says Anna Brekka, VP of Onrec USA. The technologies and services that help corporations add productivity to the hiring process have reserved the Onrec show floor in record time, and this points to confidence that their customers are gearing up. Across the board, the organization has been seeing increased activity related to the gathering of hiring professionals scheduled for this September 14-16 in Chicago. Only three more booths remain from the additional space provided, according to Onrec. More information about the event can be found at:
Top corporate recruiting professionals from leading organizations such as Coca-Cola, Expedia, Hard Rock, Tivo, The New York Times, the NSA, and Reebok will attend to learn about and share best practices in securing top talent. “2011 will be a pivotal year for the recruiting industry. As we exit what will surely be one of the most difficult economic eras most of us will see in our lifetime, talent acquisition is rapidly becoming one of the key strategic issues facing many companies (again). Meeting up at a venue like Onrec at this particular point in time will prove to be really valuable, given the inflection point we are all experiencing as staffing professionals,” says Jason Warner, Head of Global Talent Acquisition, Intellectual Ventures (formerly with Google and Starbucks), and emcee of the event.
This encouraging leading indicator suggests a strong fall hiring season, according to analysts at Onrec. “Research points to a recovering economy, and conversations with HR professionals and corporate leaders confirm the findings,” says Paula Santonocito, US Features Editor of Online Recruitment Magazine. “Even a number of organizations that are on record with no hiring plans acknowledge they too will add to staff as business picks up.”
