I was fortunate to attend HCI’s Strategic Talent Acquisition Conference in Boston last week.  The 3-day schedule was full of great sessions covering many topics and trends in the areas of human capital acquisition.  Among them; Steven van Aperen, “The Human Lie Detector” informed the crowd on the subtle art of reading facial expressions to gain insight into the behavioral psyche of interviewees.  Dr. John Sullivan demonstrated how the giants of Silicon Valley have created a culture of sustained employee engagement through aggressive recruitment.  Other interesting keynotes were the panels on hiring veterans and older IT workers.
