As talent acquisition leaders, our goal is to develop and implement strategies and tactics that enable our companies to hire the right talent at the right time. As members of this council, we set our own agendas, conduct surveys and do a variety of other activities designed to maximize the sharing of best practices and exchange of ideas.  We focus both on longer-term strategic issues as well as shorter-term more immediate issues of prime interest to our members.

Core responsibilities include several of the following topics, all of which we discuss during meetings:

  • Employment Branding
  • Recruitment Marketing
  • Pre-Hire Assessment
  • Recruitment Analytics
  • Recruiting Systems
  • Social and Mobile Recruiting Strategies
  • Talent Segment/Pipeline Programs
  • University Recruiting
  • Recruiter Performance
  • Contingent Labor 

The power of peer learning

Enduring relationships with trusted peers is the core of the council experience. Enhanced by our global, enterprise-wide reach, these relationships span the world and extend the council value. Confidential peer dialogue provides you with a broader perspective and shared experiences, as well as access to specific knowledge and best practices.
