Hot New Talent Acquisition Technologies Will Be on Display at 2011 HR Demo Show

Las Vegas, NV, April 14, 2011—Organizations interested in updating and improving their current talent acquisition efforts will have an exciting opportunity to see the newest talent acquisition technologies up close and in action at the 2011 HR Demo Show. These recruitment technologies—which include video-centric recruitment platforms and powerful new mobile apps and web-based applicant tracking, screening, interviewing and relocation tools, among others—are designed to help companies improve everything they do prior to on-boarding an employee, from sourcing and recruiting to screening and assessing talent.

The HRO Demo Show—the world’s largest gathering of buyers of HR and recruitment services and technologies—takes place at the Venetian Hotel, Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, May 24 through 26, and will feature recruitment technology innovators such as CareerBuilder, JSTN (Job Search Television Network) and Recsolu.

The new generation of talent acquisition technologies are designed to do far more than automate tedious manual processes and make them more efficient. They also help organizations make key improvements to their overall sourcing and recruiting strategy and their ability to compete for the best talent by:

• Humanizing talent acquisition—by facilitating the human interaction and establishing emotional connections between employers and job candidates.
• Helping to build an employment brand—by creating talent communities via social, mobile, cloud and collaboration technologies and activities.
• Going beyond standard applicant tracking system features—by reaching into the CRM realm to keep the pipeline filled with truly qualified candidates, to grab and nurture candidates’ interest, and to empower global recruitment and multi-lingual outreach.
• Getting the social networking problem under control—by driving applicants back to companies’ career portals; giving companies a clearer picture of their social media efforts/effectiveness; and helping them track and manage referrals more efficiently.

“For anyone interested in the latest HR technology, the HR Demo Show will be a truly enlightening experience,” said Elliot Clark, CEO of SharedXpertise and creator of the HR Today Forum. “And for those interested in replacing, updating or enhancing their organization’s legacy systems, the Show will offer the ideal `window shopping’ and buying experience thanks to the live technology demonstrations and the opportunity to interact directly with HR technology trail blazers. Frankly, there’s no better place to see and experience the latest talent acquisition technologies than this year’s HR Demo Show.”

“The HR Demo show is an excellent opportunity for JSTN to showcase our innovative video services, as well as learn about new HR trends and meet with our key industry partners. The format is one that fosters learning, conversation and meetings and we found it to be very effective” Lindsay Stanton, SVP Sales & Strategy JSTN.

The HR Demo Show is one of four summits taking place at the HRO Today Forum, which assembles HR and recruiting change agents and business executives from across the globe to discuss and define the future of HR services and technology. The Forum’s other summits are the HRO Summit, the MSP Summit and RPO Summit.
