Monday, June 10

3:00 pm - 3:40 pm

For the first time ever, Randstad Sourceright and HCI will recognize outstanding talent acquisition professionals and teams at the inaugural 2019 Talent Acquisition Innovation Awards. We asked organizations of all shapes, sizes and geographies to share their stories of talent acquisition innovation and transformation. To choose the finalists, we applied a rigorous scoring rubric designed to assess the WHAT, the WHY, the HOW and the PROOF behind each case study.

This session will showcase the finalist submissions for this award and feature lively Q&A with our panel of judges. Each winning organization will get a $5000 donation made to the charity of their choice.

In this session, you will:

  • Hear how the most advanced talent acquisition organizations are solving their recruiting challenges.
  • Learn insights from enterprise and small and medium organizations.
  • Take inspiration from your peers and apply new ideas to innovate in your own role.
