Share Direct Hiring Strategies – The Power to Recruit the Best

Event Details

Event Synopsis:


Thank you for your interest in our event and we hope to see you on 6th June 2012 at the Panorama Hotel Prague. 

This event is for in-house recruitment professionals, human resource and business leaders only.

Today, businesses need to control costs as well as manage their employer brand. Consequently the traditional recruitment agency model is being complemented by businesses seeking ways to recruit for themselves. This is direct hiring.

Great direct hiring is where new technologies, experienced recruiters and efficient processes work together to identify and ultimately recruit the best people. This event will provide attendees with the tools, contacts and knowledge to optimise their own recruitment capability.

Adecco Czech has brought together four leading HR providers to meet with customers and interested parties to share their experiences in supporting and building direct hiring recruitment strategies:

  • Peoplefluent is the Gartner rated leading provider of talent management and recruitment technology platforms
  • Joberate provides the know-how to multi-nationals on how to utilise social media to attract the best candidates
  • Assessment Systems International, a Czech Republic headquartered business provide the Central Eastern European market with personal assessment systems and consulting tools
  • Pontoon Solutions build flexible in-house permanent and contingent recruitment teams for their customers across the globe



Throughout the build-up to the event and during the event itself we will use Twitter to engage with attendees. You will be asked for your Twitter address during the registration process. It is not mandatory but it is free and fun so please sign-up if you have not already done so and follow us on @DirectHiring and tweet using #DirectHiring.
