Where the World Gathers to Celebrate Every Day

GLOBAL TALENT ACQUISITION DAY – First Wednesday in September

Global Talent Acquisition Day - First Wednesday in September


Global Talent Acquisition Day, celebrated on the first Wednesday of September, recognizes those who work in talent acquisition.

What exactly is talent acquisition? Essentially, it’s the process of finding skilled workers. These skilled workers are either needed to run organizations or to meet labor requirements.
Professionals working in talent acquisition include anyone who finds and hires talented people. Their goal is always to find the right person for the job. Talent acquisition includes recruiters, hiring managers, HR professionals, staffers, or anyone else that is in charge of finding talented workers.

Throughout the observance, cities such as Boston, Chicago, Dallas-Fort Worth, Washington D.C., Portland and, San Diego celebrate in a variety of ways. Talent acquisition companies in these cities and others host happy hours, luncheons, and conferences.

HOW TO OBSERVE #TalentAcquistionDay

Take part in an event near you. If you want to participate, but you find no event near you, visit Virtual Celebration or the Live Webinar hosted by Phenom People.
If you are in charge of a talent acquisition team, you could:

  • Host a happy hour or luncheon
  • Order treats for your TA team
  • Have an outdoor party or barbecue
  • Decorate the office
  • Tag your TA team on social media
  • Take your TA team out for a round of miniature golf or other outdoor activity

If you are an employee or member of an organization, take the opportunity to send thank yous to those you’ve hired. You can show your appreciation by giving them a shout out on social media. A written thank you note shows a meaningful moment taken to show that appreciation. Or, invite them to coffee or lunch.

No matter what you do, be sure to share this day on social media with #TalentAcquistionDay or #GlobalTADay.


KRT Marketing Agency, in conjunction with The Association for Talent Acquisition Professionals (ATAP), founded Global Talent Acquisition Day in 2018. Together they desired to thank those in talent acquisition for all their hard work, which often goes unrecognized. The first-ever observance took place on September 5, 2018.  KRT Marketing Agency provides talent acquisition services to organizations and businesses around the world.
