Rethinking the Case for Change
Whether it’s managed in-house or outsourced, the Talent Acquisition function and its costs are continually scrutinized and assessed for potential efficiencies.
While it can be frustrating for HR to be routinely challenged on cost and value brought, the creation of a robust business case can be a powerful lever in demonstrating value shoulder to shoulder with the cost/efficiency benefits.
In the current economic climate, the pressure to reduce cost and improve efficiency remain a key priority, however there is increasing evidence that Shareholders recognize competitive advantage is intrinsically linked to Talent and that talented employees simply don’t stay as long and attracting them in the first place takes tenacity and consistent focus.
People are one of the greatest costs any organization carries, not the cost of recruiting those people, so Talent Acquisition leaders need to lead the strategy and debate about their organizations greatest assets and demonstrate their value within the broader plan and people agenda.
Go further than simply accepting and absorbing change, and instead start to take control and lead the change for the commercial good of the organization. That means demonstrating the true value of recruitment across the organization, as well as how much it really costs. And here, we offer ways to do just that.
