The purpose of the HCI Global Talent Leader award is to recognize and inspire organizations around the globe that have transformed their talent management operations to be as reflective of their global business as possible. This trendsetting organization will be selected from any industry or background. HCI will present the award to one winning firm at the 2013 HCI Global Talent Management Summit in July 2013 in New York, NY.
Globalization has been a reality for the last 20 years. And yet, many organizations struggle to move from ‘multinational’ to ‘global.‘ Why? Because most haven’t perfected the core functions necessary to support a truly worldwide operation. To create the open, collaborative and successful organization, talent management leaders need to master cultures, economies of scale, technology and people on a truly global scale.
- Winning this award has many benefits, only some of which include: Recognition from your talent management peers: The winner will be recognized via press release, on the HCI website and at the Awards Reception at the HCI Global Talent Management Summit in New York, New York in July 2013.
- HCI Enterprise Membership: Unlock the best that HCI has to offer with this special all-access membership to our best practices library for all of your employees to continue your talent transformation journey.
- Five passes for senior leaders in the organization to attend the 2013 HCI Global Talent Management Summit in NY, NY.
Submissions were accepted from January 1, 2013 to April 30, 2013. Winners will be announced in July 2013.
