Debra West, Director, Talent Acquisition, Boston Scientific Corporation
Tim Weller, Senior Project Specialist, Talent Acquisition, Boston Scientific Corporation
Over the last two years, Boston Scientific Corporation has transformed talent acquisition from a de-centralized function that reported to the local business to a centralized model leveraging new technology, improved processes and new development programs for recruiters. Not only were they able to drive successful outcomes for the business with an incredible strategy focused on the right people using the right tools and the right processes, but they also cut their agency spend by more than half! Their story doesn’t end there. 2013 is a new year and, centering on the launch of their new ATS, will be focused on building upon their success, and increasing the quality of their candidate pipeline. In this session, Debra West and Tim Weller will discuss how they developed a strategic approach to enable these changes, the challenges, successes, and change management that it took to create a new team structure, employ new and better technology to fit their needs, and their plans for the future.
