Adecco RPO to Present on Public Sector HR Best Practices at 2011 HCI Government Talent Summit

Sep 14, 2011, 09:00 ET from Adecco RPO

MELVILLE, N.Y., Sept. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Adecco RPO, a division of Adecco Solutions and an industry leader in recruitment and workforce solutions, announced today that Kim Davis, senior vice president, Adecco RPO, will present solutions to address today's challenges in public sector recruitment at the 2011 HCI Government Talent Summit, the premier, strategic government talent management event, taking place September 26-28 at the Hyatt Regency Reston in Reston, Virginia.

Davis will be joined by Janet Murphy, chief human capital officer, Federal Housing Finance Agency, to present at the general session "Jeopardy: Federal Edition" on Wednesday September 28.  Based on the popular game show, attendees will be quizzed on topics such as employee retention, talent management practices, human capital consulting and candidate search to foster lively discussion and sharing of best practices in government talent management.

"We believe that modernizing recruitment technology and transforming recruitment processes in the public sector can translate to real job growth," said Michael Beygelman, president, Adecco RPO. "Underwriting HCI activities and being featured as a thought leader on the topic of recruitment in the public sector demonstrates our ongoing commitment to the D.C Beltway and helping organizations learn how to attract and retain the best talent."

Federal agencies face major talent management challenges now more than ever, including concerns with pay freezes, tax cuts, the budget crisis and a smaller government.  In the 2011 State of the Union address, President Obama issued a call to action; the U.S. must become the number one powerhouse once again, and this must start with every citizen, every business, and every agency.

The solution to these challenges is not possible without the right human capital. HCI's premier conference on government talent management provides an opportunity to hear from some of the most respected thought leaders in the space, as well as from senior practitioners who are grappling with engagement, productivity and retention of top talent at the front lines of their own organizations.  

The 2011 HCI Government Talent Summit will feature a keynote from Lieutenant General Andrew Graham, director of the Defense Academy of the United Kingdom, colonel of the Royal Regiment of Scotland as well as presentations from notable speakers such as Bjorn Rother, acting chief, HRD Strategy Unit at the International Monetary Fund and author of "The Determinants of Currency Crises: A Political Economy Approach," and Peter J. Shelby, M.Ed., MBA, SPHR, chief learning officer for National Reconnaissance University.

Adecco RPO is a Platinum Sponsor of the 2011 HCI Government Talent Summit.
