Peterborough, NH (Vocus) September 5, 2009
TalentManagementTech.com (TMT) and Bersin & Associates today announced a free webinar to be held on Thursday, Sept. 17, at 2:00 p.m. EDT / 11:00 a.m. PDT. Sponsored by MrTed Limited and titled " Talent Acquisition Systems: Market Changes and Innovation," this webinar will be presented by Madeline Laurano, the principal analyst at Bersin & Associates who led a recent study of talent acquisition systems, covering performance, customer satisfaction, implementation challenges and industry trends. Laurano will share key findings and insight from this study as they pertain to the enterprise. An executive summary of the report, "Talent Acquisition Systems 2009: Facts, Practice Analysis, Trends and Provider Profiles," will be free to all attendees, who register here. Attendees will learn how new tools for talent acquisition are affecting the marketplace and how best to integrate them for their organizations' benefit.
"Rapidly evolving technologies in recruiting make for moving targets as organizations scramble to build the best possible talent acquisition systems," said Laurano, who is responsible for Bersin and Associates' research in talent acquisition, an area which includes workforce planning, sourcing strategies, screening and assessments, RPO, employer branding, and onboarding. Laurano has also worked as research analyst for ERE Media, the Aberdeen Group, and Linkage, Inc.
"Social media and other new tools present opportunities and challenges alike," Laurano continued. "Questions on integration and global support are top of mind for recruiting departments striving to assemble more complete solutions to identify, select and onboard new employees."
Attendees of this talent acquisition systems webinar will have access to important findings in Bersin & Associates' otherwise proprietary research, such as key recommendations on how to evaluate, select and purchase a talent acquisition system in this competitive marketplace. Furthermore, attendees will gain insight into not only the handling of product implementation, global support and configuration, but also the streamlining of end-to-end solutions.
