Veritude and Akamai Technologies to Present Upcoming HCI Webcast on Executing Successful IT Staffing Strategies

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - October 21, 2008) -

WHO:     Jim McCoy, senior vice president, Veritude, a leading staffing
         services provider, and Mark Minichiello, director of Global
         Recruiting, Akamai Technologies, Inc., the leader in powering
         rich media, dynamic transactions and enterprise applications
         online, will present a Human Capital Institute (HCI) Webcast.

WHAT:    This timely presentation, entitled "Strategy for Shared Services
         Recruitment: IT Staffing," will address the challenges that large
         organizations encounter when they staff IT positions and IT
         project teams. These challenges can be reduced by implementing a
         five-step strategy that is proven to help HR and hiring managers
         execute a staffing strategy for successful IT project development.

WHEN:    Wednesday, October 29, 2008 from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. EDT

DETAILS: Successful project management is contingent on having the right
         people on the team to get the job done, particularly when it
         comes to IT positions and projects. For organizations with
         multiple locations or a global workforce, finding the right talent
         at the right price point is often challenging.

         During this Webcast, McCoy and Minichello will address some of
         these challenges, share their own experiences, and offer five
         steps to help HR and hiring managers think more strategically
         about how they source and recruit for shared services teams. For
         example, the location of an IT project team is a critical
         decision. In some cases it may be more effective to have an entire
         team onsite, whereas in other instances, it may make sense to have
         the team working remotely.

         Each HCI Webcast is approved for a one hour re-certification
         credit towards the Human Capital Strategist (HCS) and Senior Human
         Capital Strategist (SHCS) designations at the Human Capital
         Institute, and as an approved HRCI provider, apply towards PHR,
         SPHR, and GPHR re-certifications.
