SmartRecruiters Takes Hiring Success Global with First European Event

This September, the Talent Acquisition community will gather in the heart of Europe for two days of innovation, inclusion, and hiring success.

SAN FRANCISCO / BERLIN – June 27th, 2018, 8:00 AM PST: SmartRecruiters, the Hiring Success Company, takes the industry leading Hiring Success conference global with the first annual European installment, September 19-20th in Berlin, Germany. Bringing together 250 executives, talent acquisition leaders, analysts, investors, and the hottest recruiting startups, these are two curated days of matchless networking, centered around thought-provoking seminars, product demos, and interactive sessions to define the future of an industry.

“This is a new era for recruiting,” says SmartRecruiters CEO and founder Jerome Ternynck. “Businesses recognize that their Talent Acquisition function is the competitive edge they need to succeed. Hiring Success is here to bring practitioners out of their silos and connect them with the latest in technology, best practice, and strategy.”

Drawing on the industrious spirit of Berlin and hosted on the scenic banks of the river Spree – a venue once separated into east and west by the Berlin Wall – Hiring Success 18 Europe will welcome changemakers like Deutsche Bank’s Josephine Ackermann, Coca-Cola’s Sanam Moayedi-Stummer, CERN’s James Purvis, consultant/author Robindro Ullah, and many more, as we explore the rapidly evolving world that is TA.

Attendees can look forward to three tracks taking on the most topical issues of recruiting, including innovation, inclusion, and hiring success. Watch a live chatbot showdown in the “Battle of the Bots,” where the audience asks these virtual helpers on-the-spot questions to test their functionality; join the movement for gender parity by recognizing and mobilizing talent without bias; and learn how to inspire a remote workforce and leverage flexible employment options to increase diversity and productivity.

Step into the future of TA technology with our Recruiting Startup of the Year Competition, where the newest and most daring startups in HR pitch it out on our main stage. The winner will receive €9,000 in sponsorship and an article about them written by a leading TA influencer. The contest begins July 1st, when these fledgling startups leverage the strength of their social network to be voted into the final six, who will then have to convince the expert panel at Hiring Success 18 they have what it takes.

“I had a fantastic time at HS18,” says Laura Smith, Director of Global Human Resources at Visa. “It was great to meet individuals from across the industry with inspiring ideas and fresh perspectives.”

Close out two days of learning and collaboration with a legendary Smarty Party. Mingle with the speakers, sponsors, and fellow attendees at the Sӓälchen, where guests can unwind in the Weimar glamour of the legendary nightclub.
