The second annual Global Talent Acquisition Day (#GlobalTADay) will be held on September 4, 2019 and hosted by the Association of Talent Acquisition Professionals (ATAP) and powered by founding partner KRT Marketing, now Recruitics. #GlobalTADay was established to recognize the hard working, passionate professionals around the world who connect career opportunities and job seekers every day and is celebrated on the first Wednesday of September each year. Last year, more than fifty employers pledged to celebrate including EY, Sodexo, Kforce, Aspen Dental, Kimberly-Clark, Buffalo Wild Wings, and GE Appliances. #GlobalTADay saw international participation on social media across EMEA, APAC, and LATAM. This year, local celebrations are being planned in cities including Cincinnati, Chicago, New York City, Los Angeles, Portland, San Diego, San Francisco, and more.
According to ATAP Executive Director, Kristen LeBlanc, “#GlobalTADay is an opportunity for Talent Acquisition Professionals to celebrate and be recognized for the impact they make on people and organizations, and what they love about what they do. ATAP is excited to celebrate the second year of #GlobalTADay.” EVP, West at Recruitics, Ryan Christoi added, “we couldn’t be more excited for the second installment of this special day to show appreciation for talent acquisition professionals everywhere. Based on the commitments we’ve received thus far from leading companies around the globe, this year’s celebration will be nothing short of awe-inspiring.”
Founded in 2016, the Association of Talent Acquisition Professionals (ATAP) is the only global, member-driven non-profit representing all of talent acquisition. ATAP established the Professional Code of Recruiting Integrity, builds a common body of knowledge for and advocates on behalf of the profession, and fosters an inclusive community of all professionals who have talent acquisition responsibilities.
