Human Capital Institute Presents 2015 Global Talent Week

Organization's Global Talent Management Forum and Talent Acquisition Innovation Forum Coming to Los Angeles in November

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Aug 18, 2015) - Human Capital Institute (HCI), the global association for strategic talent management, today announced details of its first-ever Global Talent Week. A combination of two of its most popular conferences, the Global Talent Management Forum and the Talent Acquisition Innovation Forum, the events will take place from Monday, November 2 through Thursday, November 5, 2015 at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in Los Angeles.

One of the biggest challenges facing global companies today is the need to build and sustain a strong talent pipeline in a marketplace rife with uncertainty. And with companies competing for the same talent pool, recruiting, developing and retaining high potential talent in this environment should be the highest priority. To meet this need, more companies are looking worldwide to find the best and brightest talent their organizations need to succeed. HCI's Global Talent Week is designed to address these challenges, offering participants access to the most cutting-edge ideas and technologies through two distinct events.

"As acquiring and managing talent in today's challenging landscape will only continue to become more difficult, we recognized the need for companies to adopt new and effective approaches to help them access the global talent pool to find the individuals who can drive their business forward and manage them successfully," said Carl Rhodes, HCI's chief executive officer. "Through our inaugural Global Talent Week, we will provide our audience of HR professionals with the crucial insight and best practices that can change the way they attract, hire and manage talent on a global scale."

2015 Global Talent Management Forum

Taking place Monday, November 2 to Tuesday, November 3, HCI's 2015 Global Talent Management Forum is designed to explore how organizations can balance local talent strategies with those that align with their own unique culture, value system and business goals. The event will show attendees how to take a lifecycle approach to sourcing, developing and retaining top performers in a fast-paced global environment, in order to create a global supply chain of talent and skills aligned with business needs.

The conference includes a robust schedule of sessions and in-depth workshops, covering all aspects of global talent management, from recruiting talent, developing leaders and skills, and engaging and retaining high performers. In addition, the event will feature keynotes from some of the foremost thought leaders in the field, including Bill Huffaker, global director of Talent Management and Acquisition at General Motors; Suzanne Martin, Executive Development at Google; and Marcus Buckingham, founder of The Marcus Buckingham Company.

2015 Talent Acquisition Innovation Forum

HCI's 2015 Talent Acquisition Innovation Forum will be held Wednesday, November 4 to Thursday, November 5. The event will reveal the tools and technologies that promise to change the global talent acquisition game and help employers access the talent they need from the international candidate pool.

Whether attendees are part of a multi-branch global company or a geographically dispersed domestic company, the Talent Acquisition Innovation Forum will provide engaging sessions led by senior practitioners and experts teaching them how to create a comprehensive talent acquisition structure while keeping local recruiting techniques nimble and innovative. In addition, the event will include keynotes from industry leaders including Lori Russo, head of Global Talent Acquisition, TripAdvisor; Melissa Harper, vice president of Global Talent Acquisition, HR Compliance and Chief Diversity Officer, for Monsanto Company; and Brad Cook, global vice president of Talent Acquisition for Informatica.
