Global Talent Acquisition Day

Observed on the first Wednesday of September, Global Talent Acquisition Day is a holiday that recognizes the contributions of talent acquisition experts who work hard every single day of the year to bring the most talented employees to organizations around the world.

Without the dedicated work and expertise of these professionals, organizations and businesses wouldn’t have the talent they need to keep things running smoothly. After all, every organization requires the right professionals to enact their business plan and ensure that operations continue smoothly into the future.

This holiday is mainly observed by talent acquisition professionals and the organizations that rely on them.

The History of Global Talent Acquisition Day

Although the focus on the talent acquisition industry has recently come to most people’s attention, the fact is that this industry has been around for thousands of years. Even going back to ancient China, acquisition professionals were used to acquire only the most talented employees for the royal court.

With everyone’s attention on talent acquisition nowadays, it should come as no surprise that this holiday was created to recognize these professionals in 2018. It was created by the KRT Marketing Agency and Talent Acquisition Professionals to acknowledge the work of these professionals.
