CapRelo Partners with Tech Council of Maryland to Support STEM Education and Talent Acquisition

STERLING, VA, November 10, 2014 – CapRelo, a global employee relocation management firm, today announced a partnership with the Tech Council of Maryland (TCM), Maryland’s largest technology trade association for life science and technology. The partnership is designed to deliver informative programming focused on talent acquisition to the Council’s members and to support higher education in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).

“CapRelo approached us with a unique strategic partnership, which went far beyond a traditional membership program,” said Philip Schiff, TCM’s CEO. “We look forward to working with the company to bring greater value to our membership as we continue efforts to ensure that Maryland high tech and life sciences business communities are world-class.”

Over the next year, CapRelo will host a series of programs to educate TCM members on talent management strategies. The first event, a Talent Acquisition Roundtable, is scheduled for November 20 and will focus on strategies for STEM-related recruiting and retention. Representatives from CapRelo and Helios HR will discuss how recruitment policies, benefits, and employment offers can give companies a strategic business advantage.

In addition, CapRelo’s sister company, JK Moving Services, will award a $2,500 scholarship to a student pursuing a STEM degree at a Maryland college or university. Criteria and application details for the scholarship will be announced in early 2015.
