I was honored to lead the panel discussion with the ERE Recruiting Excellence Award Finalists again this year down at the 2011 Spring ERE event. 20 judges evaluated applications that came in from around the world, across 8 categories. We had fantastic applicants this year.
A big congratulations to the award winners, including Deloitte (Best College Program), AT&T (Best Career Site), Accenture (Best Employee Referral Program), Adidas (Best Employer Brand), Cisco (Best Retention Program), Naval Sea Systems Command (Best Military Program), Informatica (Most Strategic Use of Technology), and CACI (Best Recruiting Function of the Year).
So they won an award. What did they actually do to win? (Link to Video)
What makes this session great is that audience members get to ask questions of panelists to learn not just WHAT they did, but HOW they did it. As I said (with a big sarcastic smile) to the audience when I kicked off this session, “Please ask great questions. If this session sucks, it’s because of you.” So, would you like to learn more about what makes these finalists and award winners worthy of this kind of industry recognition?
