"Virtualizing HR" Focus of Upcoming InterCall Event February 9

Industry Experts Explore Trend of Taking Human Resources Recruiting, On-boarding, Benefits and Other Strategic Functions Online Instead of on the Road

CHICAGO, February 3, 2012 InterCall®, the world's largest conferencing and collaboration services provider, today announced it will convene a virtual event entitled, "Virtualizing HR: Leveraging Virtual Environments for Recruiting, Benefits and More" from 1pm to 4pm ET on February 9.

Several leading organizations have provided virtual human resource services for several years, and now some are taking virtual HR to the next level. InterCall’s event will explore how HR leaders are using new methods for recruiting, on-boarding, offering benefits and effecting changes in the ways their organizations manage strategic HR functions.

"Virtual events and environments use new technologies to let companies create deep engagement and interaction with customers, prospects and employees in ways ordinary websites or group-sharing hubs cannot," said Kathleen Finato, Senior Vice President of Marketing and Business Development at InterCall. "Information can be made available on-demand, 24x7, whenever audiences are ready to receive it."

The InterCall Virtual Environments platform gives organizations virtual recruiting and on-boarding benefits, including instant access to a global audience, a cost-effective and targeted method of interacting with employee candidates, and a virtual HR structure where programs and services can be provided in an "always on" environment. Organizations can easily on-board a global workforce, "bring in" company experts without disrupting their schedules, and facilitate the dissemination of insights and tips from peers.

Among the featured speakers of the InterCall virtual event are Kellye Whitney, Managing Editor of Talent Management Magazine; Brad Pierson, Manager of Integrated Product Sales at RAPS; Adele Durham, Sr. Events Manager at Haymarket Media; and Eric Vidal, Director of Product Marketing at InterCall. Attendees also will hear first-hand from clients who have applied virtual technologies to a variety of HR initiatives as well as gain insights on industry trends and best practices around the adoption of virtual environments.

"The great benefit of these types of events is that participants will have the opportunity to interact with subject matter experts, network with other HR professionals, and come away with new and innovative ideas to bring the virtual environment to their own HR departments," Finato said.
