Chicago, IL (PRWEB) November 10, 2011 The Recruiting Conference Inc announced that Informatica, the world’s number one independent provider of data integration software and Dave Mendoza, global talent acquisition consultant, have won the Excellence in Sourcing Innovation award.
The winners were honored November 1st during the Recruiting Conference’s annual recruiting and sourcing event at the InterContinental Chicago-O’Hare.
The awards highlight some of the best recruiting efforts by corporate recruitment departments, recruitment advertising/creative agencies on behalf of clients operating in any industry sector, or private or public companies.
“The Excellence in Sourcing Innovation Award was awarded to Informatica for applying SEO based tactics in their global sourcing and recruiting efforts, and for leveraging multiple social media platforms beyond their intended utilities,” said Anna Brekka, VP of North America for Onrec.
Informatica brought global talent acquisition consultant Dave Mendoza in to spearhead their sourcing and recruiting objectives in 2010. Mendoza’s work with Informatica has revealed unique sourcing and talent mapping challenges being faced by companies globally, particularly in high growth areas like APAC and EMEA.
“Dave has opened doors to revolutionary ways of talent mapping through competitive intelligence that are immediately actionable. As Informatica continues to expand globally and is seeking out the best talent in the industry, he has been a great thought partner” said Brad Cook, Global Vice President of Talent Acquisition at Informatica.
“Informatica is known for innovation and quality in its products and my goal is to bring that same level of innovation into how we attract and retain top industry talent. We invest in our global talent acquisition team with unparalleled, cutting edge technologies, and subject matter expertise level training in both social media and sourcing that clearly differentiate us from other Silicon Valley companies. Our recruiters and sourcers are our top priority and as a result we source and attract the smartest people in an exceptionally competitive market.”
Mendoza’s strategic roadmap earned Informatica recognition earlier this year as winner of the “Most Strategic Use of Technologies” category at the 2011 ERE Recruiting Excellence Awards. Mendoza has received numerous recognition this past year for his initiatives in the area of talent mapping with an emphasis on product aligned competitive intelligence and bench marking best practices.
Industry analyst and respected pundit Gerry Crispin stated: “As more sophisticated recruiting models emerge with pipelines that are years in the making, we are bound to see new sourcing strategies that mash-up social media channels with competitive intelligence goals to map talent even as they form their skills, knowledge and experience. Some of the work by Brad Cook and David Mendoza at Informatica has recently been recognized for cutting these new paths in the recruiting forest.”
