To promote international standards, education and training opportunities in the human resources industry, DirectEmployers Association announces its partnership with United Kingdom-based trade body, Direct Employers Association (DEA).

INDIANAPOLIS, July 8, 2014 –– While actively working to expand its partnerships and member reach, U.S.-based DirectEmployers Association announces its new partnership with United Kingdom-based trade body, Direct Employers Association (DEA). While similar in name, each organization will bring different components to the partnership to further aid and educate HR professionals in the field of recruitment and talent acquisition.

“With similar missions and drive to create effective recruitment methods and strategies for our respective members, this partnership can not only positively impact our membership, but also provide them with further educational opportunities and access to their peers,” stated Bill Warren, Executive Director, DirectEmployers Association.

While DirectEmployers Association focuses on providing employers with the technology necessary to fulfill federal job listing regulations, as well as employment marketing and branding services, DEA Europe is guided by six key objectives which all serve to promote the importance of the recruitment agenda via training, promotion and services all while formulating best practices. Through this expansion of knowledge and innovation, DEA Europe is fast becoming a recognized expert voice while representing its members, government departments and ministers.

Colin Minto, Chairman DEA Europe said, “We are delighted to collaborate with the US DirectEmployers Association to expand the support and services that DEA Europe provides to its members to a wider global audience. The opportunity to align both Associations’ products and services to empower and develop member strategies and those that deliver them is an extremely exciting proposition and one that will further elevate the resourcing agenda and those that practice it.”

Through this new partnership, members can benefit from the educational environment by gaining access to the DEA Europe’s member network and interacting with fellow recruitment and talent acquisition professionals; accessing tomorrow’s talent via the DEA Europe Schools Initiative; and the free posting of job opportunities to the DEA Europe job board.
