TheLadders.Com to Sponsor HCI’s Strategies Track
Washington, D.C. — Aug. 23
The Human Capital Institute (HCI), a global professional association and educator in talent management strategies, and TheLadders.com, a $100,000-plus jobs Web site, have announced that TheLadders.com will sponsor HCI’s Executive Acquisition Strategies education and research track, one of several topics addressed in HCI’s Talent Acquisition community of interest, a community HCI considers critical to organizations working to build competitive advantage.
Executive acquisition strategies are essential, particularly in today’s business environment.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, new employment demand for top executives will continue to grow at least at the rate of the average of all occupations through 2012.
Yet, over the same period, experts are forecasting a severe shortfall of executive talent because of boomer-generation retirement and the exacting new aptitudes for building flexible, innovative, knowledge-based corporations in the global economy.
TheLadders.com has emerged as a leader in the executive talent space, helping recruiters and job seekers leverage the power of technology to address the needs of this new and evolving economy.
“Arguably, no corporate activity is more important or central to success than identifying, enlisting and aligning key executives,” said Allan Schweyer, HCI president and executive director. “In a talent-based economy, vision, team-building, leadership and precise communications are the core skills that build passion, and drive the constant adaptation and change necessary to compete effectively.”
HCI’s track will provide organizations with the tools they need to develop and implement effective executive acquisition strategies.
A panel of expert advisers explores best and next practices, sharing information with human capital professionals through webcasts, white papers, education and other resources.
“Market-leading companies realize that executive acquisition strategies are a vital competitive lever and a key determinant for success,” said Marc Cenedella, TheLadders.com founder, president and CEO. “We’re pleased to support the Human Capital Institute’s track in order to help educate more organizations about this important topic.”
