New York, N.Y. (June 18, 2019) – GroupM North America’s Talent Acquisition team has won the Human Capital Institute Talent Acquisition Innovation Award at the Strategic Talent Acquisition Conference in Denver for their entry submitted on behalf of Mindshare, “Elevate Your Career.” The $5,000 prize money that accompanied the award was promptly donated to the United Fund of Puerto Rico charity.
The success of GroupM’s talent acquisition campaign was the result of collaboration and support across multiple agencies and departments. “From our research, it’s the first time a media agency in the U.S. has won an award for recruiting,” GroupM North America’s Head of Talent Acquisition Michael Wright said. “Clients and prospects are more interested in how we are going to staff up a team to service their business, so innovation in the area of recruiting is table stakes.”
GroupM’s own entry, “Picture Yourself Working Here,” was a runner-up in the Enterprise category.
