Taleo announces the first ever EUROPEAN USER CONFERENCE

New knowledge-sharing and networking event launches

Following the success of the Taleo World Annual Conference, the growth of the Taleo European user community and the recent acquisition of Jobpartners, Taleo Corporation (NASDAQ: TLEO), the global leader of SaaS-based Talent Managementsolutions, has announced that the first Taleo Europe 2011 event will be taking place this November. The event will provide a new forum for customers to come together from across Europe to share best practice and experiences as well as benefiting from a host of presentations and networking events. 

The two day event, to be held at the Hilton Paris Arc de Triomphe from 8th-9th November, will welcome more than 250 guests attending keynote presentations from the Taleo Executive Team, as well as accessing a range of training sessions and customer presentations.

Michael Gregoire, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer for the Taleo Corporation will open the event with a keynote presentation on the future of Talent Management, where he will discuss how organisations can use Talent Intelligence to gain a greater understanding of their people in order to grow their business. Other presentations will include a highly anticipated guest slot with Thomas Otter, Research Vice President of Gartner Research and customer presentations from the likes of Alcatel-Lucent.

A series of specialist streams will also be available throughout the two days, allowing attendees to focus on their specific areas of interest, while gaining new insights.

Key presentations will include:

The Future of Talent Management

The Future of HR Solutions in the Cloud

Talent Strategies for Driving Business Growth

Social Sourcing Best Practices

Overcoming the Skills Gap in a Perpetual Change

Performance Management and Succession Planning

The introduction of Taleo Europe will ensure that the company is meeting the needs of its growing European customer base, which now extends beyond 250 customers. A restructuring of the User Group programme for Europe will be launched at the event, splitting the group into four regions France, UK, Germany and Benelux & Nordics. This initiative will allow each group to focus more specifically on local issues and will enable greater interaction amongst Taleo’s European customers. 

Adam Brenner, Group Vice President EMEA, Taleo, “Taleo Europe 2011 is all about ideas and innovation. This year’s event, the first of its kind in Europe, aims to recognise the key role that Talent Management strategies increasingly play within an organisation, while celebrating customer success stories.”

“Talent Management is becoming an integral part of successful business management and planning. As advances in social media and mobile technologies move Talent Management from the HR filing cabinet to the cloud, companies are increasingly turning to Taleo to provide them with the necessary Talent Intelligence to set them apart from the competition.  Through Talent Intelligence companies can gain valuable insight, which will enable them to capitalise on their most crucial asset – their people. We have a loyal and growing customer base in Europe, and this event will provide an essential forum for this community to learn from Taleo and from one another.”
