This year marked the second annual Global Talent Acquisition Day, a celebration honoring all the hard-working talent acquisition professionals around the world. Recruiters, sourcers, hiring managers, employer brand specialists, recruitment marketers, and all-around TA experts came together on Wednesday, September 4th to celebrate their profession and promote their recruitment teams.
At Recruitics, we’re thrilled to build upon the day of recognition started by KRT Marketing (acquired by Recruitics) and continue on as a co-founder with the Association of Talent Acquisition Professionals (ATAP)!
Noteworthy additions to #GlobalTADay in 2019
For year two, we took the #GlobalTADay assets to the next level. We created our very own Global TA Day branded giphy channel with unique #GlobalTADay gifs. To date, the channel has sparked over 125,000 views! To utilize the gifs, visit the site or search #GlobalTADay or #TalentAcquisition on the gif search in Instagram Stories.
Additionally, our very own Recruitics teammate, Michelle Sargent, co-hosted a webinar with Phenom People and ATAP called “Talent Acquisition Trends that Rock” to celebrate Global Talent Acquisition Day. Watch the recording of the webinar to get the inside scoop on what’s next for the industry in 2019 and beyond.

Take a look at the worldwide reach of this year’s #GlobalTADay
Talent acquisition teams truly embraced the global emphasis in #GlobalTADay in 2019. It was so exciting to see companies across the world participate and to see collaborative internal celebrations from each continent. We loved how Intel’s recruitment teams took to social media to share their various events in India, China, Japan, Poland, the UK, and the US. They even created their own branded hashtag— #GlobalTADayatIntel—check it out!
It was bigger and better than ever, with many in-person networking events. CareerXroads hosted 7 in-person parties with notable organizations, such as The Walt Disney Company, McDonalds, Intuit, and Teradata, to name a few. Local recruitment organizations hosted happy hours and luncheons for their members. DFW Texas Recruiters Network had a record-setting attendance with over 250 members participating at their celebration, and several companies also organized large internal festivities for their recruitment teams!
Most importantly, #GlobalTADay marked a special occasion for recruitment marketing and talent acquisition professionals to share what they love most about their jobs.
Of course, the holiday served as an excellent platform for organizations to share their appreciation and the successes of their talent acquisition teams.
We couldn’t be prouder of the success of the second annual #GlobalTADay! We’re already counting down the days until September 2, 2020. Can we count you in?
