San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) June 02, 2011
The leading innovator of peer networks for senior corporate leaders, Executive Networks, has announced the launch of the Global Sourcing & Recruiting Network (GSRN), connecting executives in charge of sourcing and recruiting at the world’s largest companies.
The Global Sourcing & Recruiting Network is designed as a forum for access to next practices and best practices – and new ideas, advice, practical materials, powerful tools, and key insights into emerging trends in the field.
“More and more companies now look to sourcing and recruiting for competitive advantage,” said Michael Dulworth, CEO of Executive Networks. “Executives in charge of sourcing and recruiting need fast access to reliable information – as well as tailored, concierge services addressing their specific needs. We call that combination real time business intelligence – and GSRN delivers that for peer executives,” added Dulworth.
Executives in GSRN handle wide-ranging challenges where a peer network is an invaluable resource. Those challenges include: aligning sourcing and recruiting metrics and communicating quantified impact on business objectives; transitioning from outdated 20th Century sourcing and recruiting processes and methods; exploring solutions to the vexing issue of reducing cost per-hires while also raising the value of new hires; imbedding value-based hiring across the organization; using social media as a recruiting tool, and sourcing talent in emerging markets.
Membership in GSRN is limited to the word’s top sourcing and recruiting executives from companies with revenues in excess of $15B. Members have access to Executive Networks full suite of benefits, including two member immersions per year that function as venues for deep dialog and knowledge-sharing; online peer networking through Executive Networks advanced member site; and a concierge service designed to maximize member support and cater to individual member needs.
“GSRN provides access to cutting edge ideas and great people,” said Jeanne Fedoryk, Vice President, Global Recruitment & Talent Acquisition at Johnson & Johnson. “I am very happy to have access to this group.”
