Last year’s winners:

1st: StartWire

Why We Need to Treat Job Seekers Like Customers with Chris Forman, CEO, StartWire

If the biggest touch point most companies have with the ‘outside’ world is recruiting, why do job seekers get treated so shabbily? Join Chris Forman – CEO of StartWire – for a lively presentation of this long-time paradox and why the social and consumer web is going to force a sea change in corporate behavior in the next 24 months.

2nd: Qualigence

Leverage the Real Power of Social Media to Identify and Engage Candidates, Creating a Real Competitive Edge with Steve Lowisz, CEO, Qualigence

It’s almost impossible to find a recruiter today that is not using LinkedIn or other forms of social media to identify potential candidates. Why do we have so much immediate success in using these tools, only to see their effectiveness fall over time? In this lively session, Qualigence International CEO Steve Lowisz will share how some of the world’s most effective recruitment organizations utilize social media paired with recruitment research techniques to uncover the real power social media can provide.
