Since winning the award, my professional career has really gone into high gear. I’ve been invited to do things I would have never dreamed of.” ~Ray Kallas, 2014 Winner

Recruiting Trends and Great Place to Work®’s Great Rated!™ will partner to present the 2015 Recruiter of the Year Award. Nominations are currently being accepted online and will be reviewed by a selection committee including leaders from Great Rated!™ and Recruiting Trends.
The winner of the Recruiter of the Year Award will be announced on November 9 at the 2015 Recruiting Trends Conference. The Recruiting Trends Conference will be held at Disney®’s Grand Floridian Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.
The award was presented in 2014 to Ray Kallas, Talent Acquisition Manager at Atmos Energy, based in Texas. Says Kallas: “Being nominated for the 2014 Recruiter of the Year and then actually receiving the award was truly humbling. There are so many great recruiters who are passionate about their work, and who strive to help others that just being associated in the same company as them is extremely flattering. Since winning the award, my professional career has really gone into high gear. I’ve been invited to do things I would have never dreamed of.”
“Thanks to the Recruiting Trends organization for recognizing the importance of the recruiting profession,” he continued, “and for providing an atmosphere where top recruiters can come together to learn from one another and improve their skills.”
The conference agenda features keynote sessions from Kevin Wheeler, CEO for Future of Talent Institute, Dick Finnegan, recognized retention visionary and author of Rethinking Retention in Good Times and Bad and Dr. John Sullivan, HR thought leader and author. General sessions include presentations from leaders at Intuit, Pitney Bowes, Thomson Reuters, IQ Talent and more.
The selection committee is seeking currently practicing recruiters whose work in the field exhibits professionalism, effectiveness, fearlessness and innovation.
