The global economic hangover has stalled major investment into today’s talent acquisition function. And yet, the pressure from the C-suite to deliver talent has not lessened. In fact, the ante has been upped. Leaders demand a predictable, sustainable, and performance-ready supply of talent, at the best possible price. This comes at a time where social, economic, and technology trends have yielded a complicated talent market — where candidates demand that the organization’s value system matches their own and where applicant skills and attitudes often do not easily lend themselves to on-the-job success. Organizations can no longer simply rely on those few exceptional recruiters to uncover exceptional talent as the core of their delivery model. We will explore the challenges that are shaping today’s talent market and some of the innovative practices and trends that meet those challenges — to hire and engage the performance-ready talent that will win business, retain clients, and move the organization forward.
