As a Fortune 100 technology leader, Honeywell must constantly compete for scarce, highly skilled talent. This places extreme demands on its sourcing and recruiting operations to identify and discover talent that traditional recruiting teams and structures cannot find. Recognizing the challenges of discovering great candidates in today’s competitive, data-rich recruiting environment, Honeywell began a journey in 2012 to throw the old recruiting rules aside. Leveraging a specialized total talent sourcing strategy, the company achieved a sourcing capability that not only reaches active and casual job seekers, but opens up recruiting to the 70% of available passive talent that remains hidden to traditional recruiting tactics.
In this session, Adam Forbes will share Honeywell’s experience in building a transformational sourcing and recruiting operation. What does it take to determine the need, develop a strategy, and gain support for change? What makes a great sourcer, and how much does past experience matter when the rules are changing? Which tactics and strategies that will drive high performance sourcing and recruiting in an explosively growing data-rich communications environment? Where are the opportunities and where are the pitfalls?
