- Leading SaaS provider and HR Bartender announce a three part webcast series titled Winning the War for Talent -

MATAWAN, N.J. (June 16, 2014) – Together, iCIMS, Inc., a leading provider of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) talent acquisition software solutions for growing businesses, and Sharlyn Lauby, President of ITM Group Inc. and author of the HR Bartender blog, team up to present Winning the War for Talent, a three part webcast series. The first webcast in the series will take place on Wednesday, June 18th focusing on mobile recruiting strategy. The complimentary webinars also offer Human Resource Certification Institute (HRCI) credit towards Professional in Human Resources (PHR), Senior Professional in Human Resources (SPHR), and Global Professional in Human Resources (GPHR) certifications.

The first webcast will be titled, Creating a Mobile Recruiting Strategy, focusing on best practices for developing a strategy, selling the idea to senior leadership, and measuring results. Attendees will also learn mobile recruiting essentials for every organization.

"Mobile is the name of the game. Recent research shows that only 20 percent of companies report having a mobile site; but 72 percent of active candidates use their mobile devices to job search. That's a staggering number of candidates to be missing out on," said iCIMS Chief Marketing Officer, Susan Vitale. "iCIMS has proactively developed mobile optimized career portals, offering the technology to all customers for free, and it's making an impact. We have been monitoring activity and have noted more traffic, increased engagement, and improved conversion to apply rates. During this webcast, we are excited to share how mobile plays a significant role in talent acquisition success today and offer HRCI credit as an added bonus for our webcast attendees."

"During the first installment of this webinar series we’ll focus on a recruitment strategy that is too valuable to not add to your repertoire: mobile," said Sharlyn Lauby, author of HR Bartender, "According to DigitalBuzz, there are more mobile devices on Earth than people, so companies need to take advantage of this highly accessible and widely used platform if they want to get in front of the right candidates. Having a robust mobile recruiting strategy is extremely effective in recruiting, and it can save HR professionals time and money."
