Oh What a (Global TA) Day!

For 24 hours on September 2nd, 2020, Global TA Day participants took to social media to spread their enthusiasm. 

ATAP also hosted a 14-hour virtual global event with over 1,500 attendees from over 60 countries around the world. Attendees enjoyed content from over 70 speakers on 5 stages representing all of TA – from recruiting to employer branding to everything in between.   

Celebrating the day by celebrating each other

Talent Acquisition is hard work. Whether you are a recruiter, a sourcer, in employer branding — or any of the other positions across the Talent Acquisition spectrum — chances are you’re part of a team. And that team is everything. 

Global TA Day became the opportunity for many organizations to honor their Talent Acquisition teams and all the hard work they pour into the organization. This ‘thanks’ came in many forms including customized cookies and heartfelt shoutouts, to name a few. 

And TA professionals even shared why they love this profession!

Day well-spent learning and bettering themselves within the profession

For still other Talent Acquisition professionals, Global TA Day was an opportunity to grow in their careers. Because what better way to celebrate the profession than continuing to better the profession? 

ATAP’s virtual event on Global TA Day was a hit! There were educational topics ranging the gamut from diversity to engaging the hiring manager to the power of pipelining…and everything in between!

In case you missed it, ATAP members will soon be able to view all content on the ATAP website.  

The day even included two pop-up job fairs partnering those looking for TA jobs with companies hiring TA pros. Representatives from ten companies met with several hundred candidates in one place.

We would be remiss if we didn’t thank the organizations that supported Global TA Day with their sponsorship. 

Whatever way you chose to celebrate, it was a day well spent honoring a profession that so often is focused on others. We can’t wait until next year! Save the date for September 1, 2021.
