SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 31, 2014) - Jobvite, the complete recruiting solution serving the world's fastest-growing companies, today announced that its fifth annual user summit, R(evolution) 2014, will be held from April 29-May 1 at the Westin San Francisco Market Street. Highlights include more than 20 specialized breakout sessions and keynote presentations by Jobvite CEO Dan Finnigan, Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh, Jobvite CTO Adam Hyder, VP of Product Kevin Nanney and VP of Customer Success David Lahey.
Recruiting practitioners will have ample opportunity to learn from their peers' real-life experience through four conference tracks: sourcing; qualifying and streamlining hiring; branding, compliance and accelerating the recruiting process; and making the most out of Jobvite. Prior to the main agenda, summit participants can take part in hands-on learning on social recruiting, reporting, candidate experience and more at a day-long pre-conference boot camp.
"The nature of jobs, candidates and technology have changed radically, and that's had a massive impact on recruiting. More and more, recruiting and marketing are synonymous with each other," said Jobvite CEO Dan Finnigan. "Jobs have to be marketed like consumer goods, which necessitates a fundamentally different and more transparent relationship between candidates and recruiters. This year's summit will ready recruiters for this new reality."
R(evolution) kicks off both days with inspiring keynote presentations. On Day 1, Jobvite CEO Dan Finnigan will present:
The Transparency R(evolution): Why Authentic Companies Attract Top Talent
Now more than ever, people are opening themselves to the world around them and expecting the same openness in return. Candidates crave authentic relationships with their employers. But what does that mean? And how can companies achieve the right level of transparency? Finnigan will outline how the quest for transparency, fueled by our social connections, is shaping the world of talent acquisition -- from candidate expectations to corporate cultures to bottom lines.
Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh puts a new twist on his renowned "gospel of happiness" to start Day 2 with a presentation on:
Zappos + Delivering Happiness + Downtown Vegas Project
Culture is to a company as community is to a city: it's about values, innovation, serendipity, participation, upward mobility, and attraction of smart startups and the creative class. Hsieh is applying his very successful Zappos corporate culture model to help build the most community-focused large city in the world in the place you would least expect it: Downtown Las Vegas. Hsieh's keynote will focus on the history of Zappos' customer service and culture, how that led to community focus and what Hsieh is doing now for downtown Vegas revitalization.
Additional speakers include Jobvite customers Achievers, Prezi, West Penn (Allegheny Health Network), Nutanix, Okta, ServiceNow and ValleyCrest, with more being added daily.
The Jobvite Summit 2014 is sponsored by TalentWise, HireRight, Glassdoor, JobTarget and Namely.
