It was definitely the most effective client conference setup that I've been to - very engaging.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) June 23, 2010
PreVisor, the global leader in employment assessments and talent measurement solutions that connect employment decisions to business results, concluded their sixth annual client conference with high attendee ratings. LINK 2010 took place May 19-21 at the Charleston Place Hotel in South Carolina, attracting HR and Talent Measurement analysts, media representatives, and HR executives spanning many industries.
The LINK agenda once again offered pre-conference workshops for interactive learning, followed by a welcome reception at the adjacent historic art deco theatre. The most frequently heard response from attendees: peer networking was invaluable to both newcomers and returnees.
Noel Sitzmann, CEO of PreVisor, kicked off Thursday’s general session with a surprising, innovative video showcasing PreVisor’s latest assessment simulation technology – including an avatar of himself to initially address the crowd.
Later in the day, the general session saw the addition of an Executive Panel – a frank and open dialogue between senior talent leaders from American Express, Time Warner Cable, and USAA.
Breakout sessions on Thursday and Friday provided multiple learning opportunities on topics such as gaining executive support for assessment programs, building a better interview process, hiring for culture fit, using assessments post-hire, quantifying the return on investment, retaining the right candidates, and what to expect from the OFCCP and EEOC.
Presenting companies included: ADP, Advance Auto Parts, Aflac, Bank of America, CenturyLink, Luxottica Retail, OptumHealth, Prudential, TEKsystems, Tiffany & Co., Time Warner Cable, UnitedHealth Group, U.S. Government Printing Office, Valvoline, Wells Fargo, and Xerox Corp.
The company’s customer and product vision was delivered by Chief Customer Officer, Caroline Paxman, who covered PreVisor’s work in the area of highly realistic simulations, advances in adaptive testing, and ongoing AdVance research with client partners.
“I want to compliment PreVisor on a great event. Having been intimately involved in planning our own events for Talent Management and Chief Learning Officer, I know the amount of effort that goes into planning, developing and executing a successful event,” said Mike Prokopeak, VP and Editorial Director of MediaTec Publishing. “From what I saw and the comments I heard, it was a home run.”
