Talent acquisition is at the tipping point. The way talent acquisition gets done should scare the SHIFT out of management. Recruiting is broken and for many companies, that means it’s either game over or game on. The labor market looks nothing like it did 20 years ago. Heck, it’s almost unrecognizable to what it was like just 5 years ago. And yet HR and TA still functions like it has for decades long gone. That’s why we turned to our guest Tim Sackett, author of The Talent Fix and one of HR’s favorite bloggers, for some answers and solutions.
First of all, It’s time for talent acquisition professionals to stop lying to themselves. The labor market has moved beyond post-and-pray job listings, and yet nearly 100% of companies still use this same-old-strategy to advertise job openings. And while HR technology is accelerating, it’s often Finance and IT that drives the selection and owns the solution, not HR. That’s nuts …and bad for business. What do and your company need to do to fix your talent acquisition? Whether you aspire to become a top-notch recruiter or you have 30 years under your belt, don’t miss this episode.
