8:05 AM Transforming Talent Acquisition to Meet Business Strategy

Increasingly, talent acquisition teams need to develop a strategy that matches the overall business strategy. That strategy may force HR teams to shake up their status quo and take a different approach to hiring. For instance, a data analysis may forecast where talent is needed in the next 12 to 18 months. In other cases, line of business leaders may reveal a real lack of future leadership. In such cases, HR needs to shift its delivery to pursue internal hiring and develop a process for vetting existing candidates, without causing alarm among the existing workforce. In this case study, learn:

  • How to ascertain your organization’s hiring readiness and develop a better plan of action
  • Calculating gains and losses through analyzing previous hires and retention rates
  • Cross-train with marketing teams to develop new outreach techniques for employer branding
