BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - July 8, 2008) -

WHO:      Veritude, a leading provider of temporary and permanent staffing
          solutions, will host a special Human Capital Institute Webcast
          entitled, "Begin with the End in Mind: Proactive Recruiting and
          Workforce Planning."  This Webcast will feature Paul Brubaker,
          vice president of Human Resources for Pioneer Electronics, North
          America, a leader in optical disc technology and a preeminent
          manufacturer of high-performance audio, video and computer
          equipment for the home, car and business markets

WHAT:     Third in a series of four webcasts, this event will help leaders
          and HR professionals position recruiting as a critical component
          of the strategic planning process -- and a driver of bottom-line

WHEN:     Tuesday, July 15, 2008 from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. EDT

WHERE:    To register for the free Webcast, enter the following

DETAILS:  Business leaders continue to view the role of Human Resources and
          the acquisition of talent as reactive. To transform this
          perception, HR leaders must act like other business units and
          demonstrate their ability to strategically forecast and
          anticipate recruiting needs.

          Brubaker will share his strategies for proactive recruitment.
          Referring to Dr. Stephen Covey's best-selling book, "The Seven
          Habits of Highly Effective People," Brubaker highlights habit
          number two which states, "begin with the end in mind."  He draws
          an analogy to this approach and workforce planning and
          recruiting. Brubaker will discuss how organizations can forecast
          their workforce needs and develop recruiting strategies that
          deliver results to help achieve business goals.

          Each HCI Webcast is approved for 1.5 hours re-certification
          credit towards the Human Capital Strategist (HCS) and Senior
          Human Capital Strategist (SHCS) designations at the Human Capital
          Institute, and as an approved HRCI provider, apply towards PHR,
          SPHR, and GPHR re-certifications.
