NEW YORK (March 4, 2015) – The Human Capital Institute (HCI), the global institution for strategic talent management, today announced details of its 2015 Strategic Talent Acquisition Conference. The event, taking place from Monday, June 22 through Wednesday, June 24, 2015 at the Seaport Boston Hotel in Boston, Mass., will connect attendees with the ideas, solutions and proven strategies to prepare their organizations for the next generation of talent acquisition.

As business demands evolve and the skills organizations require to carryout key business functions continue to change, organizations must take a new approach to talent acquisition to meet those needs and drive business impact. At a time when 70 percent of business leaders are concerned about the availability of key skills, the strategies currently used today will no longer be effective in filling the gaps of the future. Instead, organizations must reinvent their talent acquisition processes, making use of data analytics, supply and demand forecasting, key performance indicators, succession planning and workforce planning.

HCI’s Strategic Talent Acquisition Conference is designed to address these challenges and more, providing attendees with an understanding of the best practices, tools and technologies that can transform how they connect with in-demand talent and take their business to the next level. By connecting with the industry’s most accomplished thought leaders, leading technology providers and peers, attendees will experience firsthand how they can maximize influence, expand their roles and ensure an effective talent acquisition strategy for meeting the talent needs of the future.

In addition to innovative client case studies, informative panel discussions and networking events, the conference will also feature engaging keynotes from many of today’s most pioneering talent acquisition leaders, including William Taylor, co-founder of Fast Company and author of “Practically Radical: Not-So-Crazy Ways to Transform Your Company, Shake Up Your Industry and Challenge Yourself;” Renee Atwood, head of People for Uber Technologies; and Gerald Chertavian, founder and CEO of Year Up.

“Talent acquisition today is much more than just finding qualified talent for an open position; it is a business-critical function that must be integrated with other key functions, like workforce planning, succession planning, onboarding, development and performance, to ensure continuous business alignment,” said Carl Rhodes, HCI’s chief executive officer. “Our 2015 Strategic Talent Acquisition Conference will deliver the insight talent acquisition professionals need to make this transition, create an integrated approach and ensure their organizations benefit from robust talent pipelines to fill any skills gaps and drive the business forward.”
