In an ever-changing world of work, being impacted by a multitude of external influences, hiring sits at the focal point of the success and growth of an organisation.
Historically, RPO was perceived as something only for large companies, those in particular industries or hiring for certain positions. The evolution of the HR function and the role of HR as a strategic business partner has had a direct impact on the way organisations have approached talent acquisition.
The demands of the new digital landscape aka Recruitment 4.0, unearthed a new series of challenges that HR professionals must overcome. The internet has enabled a global marketplace for talent and as such even the most experienced recruiters are in a fight to find the best talent to hire.
The recent HCI conference did not disappoint and offered us all a lot of really interesting take aways on where Talent Acquisition is, or may be, heading. Important and timely topics such as employer branding technologies, candidate and employee engagement, and the next horizon for performance analytics were all in focus – as expected.
There is a famous quote that states, “The only thing you can control in life is your reaction.” For talent acquisition leaders constantly facing the challenge of hiring volatility, these words ring very true.
