iCIMS Announces INSPIRE European Summit in Partnership with UNLEASH

Register for the virtual event to learn from global industry leaders and connect with talent and technology innovators

HOLMDEL, N.J. [August 17, 2021] – iCIMS, the talent cloud company, and UNLEASH are joining forces to present INSPIRE European Summit, a transformative virtual experience to empower companies to move forward together and collectively shape the new world of work. Talent and technology leaders in Europe are encouraged to register for the free virtual event on 21 October to hear from some of the industry’s most inspiring trailblazers and connect with the community on critical conversations around talent recruitment and retention, improving diversity and inclusion in the workplace, advancing recruitment technology, and innovating together to achieve business success.

“After the past year and a half we have experienced, we are all longing for a sense of connection with our peers and could use some inspiration as we shape the future of work together,” said Mickaël Cabrol, managing director of EMEA, iCIMS. “We are partnering with UNLEASH to host a much-needed virtual industry event for European-based leaders where we will deliver dynamic content, share talent transformation stories from admirable employers, and provide a platform for discussion. Thousands of people look forward to gathering at UNLEASH events across the globe each year, so we are proud to bring back the highly-anticipated event in a new, modern format.”

INSPIRE European Summit has a strong lineup of speakers including global talent acquisition leaders from Adidas, the global retail giant with teams across 100 nations, Spotify, the Sweden-based audio streaming and media services provider with 365 million users, DHL Express, a leading logistics company that employs more than 400,000 people and delivers more than 1.6 billion parcels each year, Novartis, one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world, and more. The event will cover crucial topics in talent acquisition, workforce planning and business strategy including the ethics of leveraging AI in recruiting, global talent mobility programs, impactful modern recruitment technology, candidate expectations and equitable hiring strategies to build more diverse teams.

“We are thrilled to be hosting the INSPIRE event with iCIMS this autumn,” said Marc Coleman, CEO, UNLEASH. “HR has been in the eye of the storm over the past 18 months and has a much more important role to play over the next 18 months as we prepare for the new economy and a labour market that’s completely changed overnight. Covid has been a time machine in the age of machines, where the war for talent has quickly moved from nuclear to space age. The ‘Great Resignation’ and ‘Work from Anywhere’ is not just industry news, but the talk of the mainstream media – so bringing HR leaders together to talk tactics and strategy could not be more timely. UNLEASH’s European community has so many important exclusive insights to share, I really can’t wait to welcome everyone along on Tuesday, 21st October.”

“I’m looking forward to joining INSPIRE European Summit, hosted by UNLEASH and iCIMS, where I’ll be speaking with fellow CHROs on an extremely timely topic within Spotify and in the HR community at large – talent mobility,” said Katarina Berg, chief human resources officer, Spotify. “More than ever at Spotify, we want our people to have a growth mindset, one that fuels their passion and curiosity, and drives their development. It’s what’s best for our people, our talent retention and ultimately, our business.”

The event will take place prior to iCIMS’ second annual INSPIRE Virtual Conference on Nov. 16-17, featuring celebrity speaker Dan Levy, Emmy® and Golden Globe winning writer, actor, director and producer, and global industry analyst Josh Bersin. Global talent leaders can register for the free event here.
