BIGGEST JOB OF THEM ALL: STAFFING NEW GLOBAL ECONOMY; INTERNATIONAL SEARCH AND HUMAN RESOURCE GROUP MEETS IN TORONTO; SURVEY TO BE RELEASED
 The job of recruiting and hiring the best men and women to lead, manage and staff corporations in today's competitive, complex and changing global marketplace may be the most critical job of them all.
 Which is why hundreds of the world's leading search and human resource executives will be meeting in Toronto later this week (Sept. 24-25), as the International Association of Corporate & Professional Recruiters holds its first international conference.
 -- Top management, employment and economic experts will be joining IACPR members in programs, presentations and workshops dealing with topics ranging from the realities, rewards and risks of globalization and the ingredients of executive success, to the effect of cultural differences on behavior and recruitment practices throughout the world.
 -- The IACPR, which has more than 600 members, is a unique organization of both senior-level executive search consultants and human resource executives at many of the world's largest corporations. Members from the U.S., Canada, Great Britain, France and Belgium will be in attendance.
 -- Among the conference speakers are: Lester Thurow, Dean of MIT's Sloan School of Management; Jeffrey Gandz, professor and director, MBA Program, School of Business Administration, The University of Western Ontario; and Leon Morange Selig, director, Executive Education, INSEAD (the European Institute of Business Administration, in Fontainebleau).
 -- Professor Thurow's controversial best-seller, "Head to Head: The Coming Economic Battle Among Japan, Europe and America," is making headlines.
 Identifying the biggest international competitive advantage in the years ahead, he says "the education and skills of the work force will end up being the dominant competitive weapon."
 In contrast to the United States, he notes that "in Japan the head of human resource management is usually the second most important person after the CEO. To become CEO, it is a job that one must have held."
 -- The 1992 IACPR Professional Recruiters' Ovation (PRO) Award will be presented to Dr. Warren Bennis, a pioneering authority on leadership, whose work (including his 19 books) has had a profound impact on organizational behavior throughout the world.
 NOTE TO EDITORS: The results of the IACPR's 1992 survey will be released during the conference. Among the questions it will answer: Are top executives overpaid -- or are they worth every penny they get?
 The IACPR conference will he held in Toronto at L'Hotel, 225 Front St., W. For information and schedules, please contact Linda Meagher, executive director of the IACPR at L'Hotel (416-597-1400) beginning Sept. 23.
