Overview of Talent Acquisition and Sourcing Conclave (#TASCON17) Bengaluru

Two consecutive years of success with #TASCON15 & #TASCON16 and now Sourcing ADDA presents #TASCON17, this time in Bengaluru which was a success.

The Talent Acquisition & Sourcing Conclave (#TASCON17) was held this time at Bengaluru, in Hotel Chancery Pavillion which helped Sourcing ADDA achieve another milestone. The event consisted of 18 renowned speakers from reputed companies with 250 attendees ranging from Directors, Heads, Managers, Executives, Sourcing, Recruiting and H. R. professionals within the Recruitment sphere.

We @SourcingAdda would like to take this opportunity to thank our Sponsors i.e. Timesascent as Media Partners, Indeed as a Platinum Sponsor, Talent Recruit & SourcePRO as the Silver Sponsors while the Rewards & Recognition Partner i.e. XOXOday and the HR Partner i.e. HR Enlight for their support and assistance. The combined efforts and support of the Speakers, Delegates, Sourcing ADDA Team and the volunteers from Indus Business Academy, Bangalore (formerly known as Indian Business Academy) that altogether made the Talent Acquisition & Sourcing Conclave (#TASCON17) achieve its grand success.

We had several activities where we divided the sessions in to sections namely, Strategy Hub and Sourcing Lab. Several of the Sponsors joined in by conducting activities themselves. We even had some general activities for all the attendees and speakers to enjoy at #TASCON17 which were the ‘Best #Twitterati Contest’ (most tweets), ‘#SelfieContest’ (best selfie) and an open ‘#SourcingContest’ (to utilise Sourcing skills acquired and improve your Talent Acquisition skills by competing with the best within the industry) to complement the event.

The sessions that were conducted in the two sections were related to the names of the sections. The Strategy Hub being more of a theoretical one while the Sourcing Lab was a practical one. The Sessions in the Sourcing Lab included live demonstrations of tips, tricks and hacks to capture the Talent Magnets. Here techniques and skills were showcased for fellow Talent Acquisitionist’s to acquire and build on; in an attempt to be better Talent Magnet Sourcing professionals. Apart from this we also had three networking breaks for the Speakers, Attendees and Sponsors to interact with each other and form connections.
