grown considerably (rising from 57 participating organizations and
seven sponsors in 2011 to 90 companies and 18 sponsors in 2012 in
North America, and expanding the program to the U.K.) as more
organizations recognize the bottom line and branding benefits of
keeping job seekers engaged and informed about their candidate

the HR community's thought leaders. The Council ensures the Talent

ideas that can enhance the program and ensure its continued success
as it enters its third year. Through various committees, the members
