The "Hiring Success Company", SmartRecruiters, has finally moved their Hiring Success conference to a worldwide stage with the advent of their first newly annual European event. Taking place September 19th - 20th in Berlin, Germany, the conference will gather over 250 executives, talent acquisition leaders, analysts, investors, and the most anticipated recruiting startups for two carefully tailored days of networking and intriguing seminars, product demos, and interactive talks.
“This is a new era for recruiting,” says SmartRecruiters CEO and founder Jerome Ternynck. “Businesses recognize that their Talent Acquisition function is the competitive edge they need to succeed. Hiring Success is here to bring practitioners out of their silos and connect them with the latest in technology, best practice, and strategy.”
Drawing on the industrious spirit of Berlin and hosted on the scenic banks of the river Spree – a venue once separated into east and west by the Berlin Wall – Hiring Success 18 Europe will welcome changemakers like Deutsche Bank’s Josephine Ackermann, Coca-Cola’s Sanam Moayedi-Stummer, CERN’s James Purvis, consultant/author Robindro Ullah, and many more, as we explore the rapidly evolving world that is TA.
Attendees can look forward to three tracks taking on the most topical issues of recruiting, including innovation, inclusion, and hiring success. Watch a live chatbot showdown in the “Battle of the Bots,” where the audience asks these virtual helpers on-the-spot questions to test their functionality; join the movement for gender parity by recognizing and mobilizing talent without bias; and learn how to inspire a remote workforce and leverage flexible employment options to increase diversity and productivity.
Step into the future of TA technology with our Recruiting Startup of the Year Competition, where the newest and most daring startups in HR pitch it out on our main stage. The winner will receive €9,000 in sponsorship and an article about them written by a leading TA influencer. The contest begins July 1st, when these fledgling startups leverage the strength of their social network to be voted into the final six, who will then have to convince the expert panel at Hiring Success 18 they have what it takes.
“I had a fantastic time at HS18,” says Laura Smith, Director of Global Human Resources at Visa. “It was great to meet individuals from across the industry with inspiring ideas and fresh perspectives.”
