ATAP will represent the interests of talent acquisition professionals at every level worldwide.
ATAP will grow and advance the profession to demonstrate the impact of talent acquisition in every organization around the world.
Our mission is to represent the interests of talent acquisition professionals at every level worldwide.
We’ll do that by building a common body of knowledge, establishing minimum standards and ethics, advocating for our profession with governmental entities, within the business community, and with other related professional societies; and developing community at a local, nationwide and global level to enable talent acquisition professionals to better learn from and network with each other.
ATAP was founded in 2015, but the idea for a global recruiting association has long had its roots in the hearts and minds of talent acquisition professionals.
In 2012, an early plan for the association was hatched by Acting Executive Director Ben Gotkin and Senior Advisor Gerry Crispin, and in 2015 brought to life by a community of volunteers:
The time really is now. Submit your interest in membership. Help us find qualified leaders to join the inaugural board. Be a part of talent acquisition history. #ATAPGlobal
