They must understand which roles are critical in the present and future. How do you create a workforce plan and translate it into a talent acquisition strategy that will attract not just the right talent, but the best talent? How do you recruit ahead of the curve when filling requisitions is reactive? How do you engage talent in meaningful ways, even when you may not have a current open position? What role does social media play in the attraction and engagement of talent?
