Atlanta, GA, United States, 2009/08/17 - Senior talent acquisition leaders from Fortune 500s and leading nonprofits will meet in Atlanta to explore vital issues and trends during second national Staffing Leaders Exchange - ConsultinginTalent.com.
Atlanta-based human resources consulting firm inTalent Consulting, LLC announces the second Staffing Leaders Exchange will be held Sept. 23-24 in Atlanta at the Georgia Tech Hotel & Conference Center. This national forum exclusively for senior talent acquisition leaders provides a unique opportunity for participants to discuss industry trends, best practices and critical issues and to network with peers. Registration information is available on inTalent Consulting’s website.
The only forum of its kind, the Staffing Leaders Exchange fills a unique niche different from most staffing associations that are designed to recruit managers or primarily are research-based, regional in nature or focused on executive search.
The keynote discussion on the best practices of bringing the executive search function in-house will be led by Lee Ashton, vice president of global talent acquisition with Brown-Forman Corp. based in Louisville, Ky. Other timely topics on the agenda include ways lead the recruiting function during a down economy, how to manage a team of virtual recruiters and to leverage technology.
"The Staffing Leaders Exchange is a one of a kind event that successfully blends professional networking and best practice sharing among some of the industry's most experienced and accomplished thought leaders,” said 2008 attendee Marlon Sullivan, divisional vice president of Global Talent Acquisition for Abbott Laboratories. “We all have hectic schedules and there are many industry events we could attend -- this is one well worth the time and cost of doing so."
“The idea for this unique national forum came from senior talent acquisition leaders who felt the need to discuss broader issues beyond the basics of recruiting,” says Cindy Lubitz, managing partner of inTalent Consulting. “These senior executives wanted a forum for discussing issues that keep them awake at night and key lessons learned in leading the function. The Staffing Leaders Exchange fills this need and opens doors for valuable networking on the national level,” Lubitz explains.
During semi-annual virtual and live meetings, the Staffing Leaders Exchange gives participants the rare opportunity to debate, discuss and explore vital talent acquisition issues and trends. The majority of the time is spent in open discussions on relevant issues.
