MATAWAN, N.J., Jan. 30, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- iCIMS, Inc., a leading provider of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) talent acquisition software solutions for growing businesses, recently re-staged its educational site dedicated to talent acquisition innovation: Hire Expectations Institute™ (HEI). The refreshed online environment offers the latest information about industry trends, new technology tools, and best practices for both employers and now, for the first time, related content specific to job seekers as well.
"Information on recruiting, sourcing, hiring, and onboarding is available through a variety of resources, but up until now, these have mainly been focused on the recruitment audience. The mission behind the Hire Expectations Institute is to provide a one-stop shop for talent acquisition-specific thought leadership resources for both job seekers and employers," said iCIMS Chief Marketing Officer, Susan Vitale. "Through HEI, HR professionals have a robust resource that will help them stay ahead of competition in the war for top talent, and job seekers have a place to receive expert advice on the use of modern recruiting technology to give them an added edge in their job search. These audiences are in a symbiotic relationship; it makes sense to provide tools to help them both become more effective at leveraging the latest technical advances in recruitment to find their perfect match," Vitale concluded.
As a result of economic growth, there are 2.4 million net new jobs projected in the U.S. in 2014. According to Glassdoor.com, 51 percent of workers are considering looking for a new job, which translates into a lot of movement and competition for the best talent – and the most desirable roles.
Advantages of the new thought leadership environment include an intuitive page layout with easy navigation and increased third-party research from analyst firms, technology providers, and Human Resources domain experts, all available for free download. The site's homepage now welcomes employers and job seekers with an interactive image and offers wider variety of resources including videos, articles, eBooks, infographics, polls, and all upcoming HEI regional events and webcasts.
Content on HEI is featured under six different categories:
- Employer Side: Get to Know the Candidate, Hiring the Right Candidate, Create a Great Candidate Experience
- Job Seeker Side: Get to Know the Recruiter, Develop Professionally, Benefit from Modern Recruitment Technology
In conjunction with the newly redesigned Hire Expectations Institute site, iCIMS is expanding its related regional event series, the HEI Roadshow, to include 16 full-day events in 13 cities across the U.S. During these complimentary sessions HR professionals can network with their peers and learn more about talent acquisition best practices and industry trends.
