Translating the Impact of Talent Acquisition

Wednesday, 17 May 2017 – 6 – 9:30 pm –  London

Location: The Dorchester, 53 Park Lane, London W1K 1QA UK



Hosted by Draza Zachary Misko

Global VP and Executive Director, HRO Today Technology and Services Association

If people are an organisation’s best asset, then why is investment in recruitment initiatives so hard to come by? We all know the impact of talent acquisition on, among other things, the candidate experience, employee engagement and retention, internal mobility, diversity and inclusion, and business performance is great. But we also know that it is hard to quantify.

The recruiting landscape has changed much faster than the habits of recruiters.  Many of the tried-and-true approaches that companies have relied on for decades may no longer be viable and some are more important than ever.  A robust approach that includes all concepts is more important than ever.  It’s time to consider the changes that have redefined recruiting and learn the approaches that leading companies should be using to transform their competitiveness!

At this session we will discuss:

  • How recruiting plays a pivotal role in our industry and what are the current trends–an introspective to what talent acquisition means today.
  • Why the mindset of recruiting needs to shift from screening out, to inviting in the right people.
  • What recruiting methodologies–including traditional methods, online tools, social media, talent communities and Lean processes–are honed for this era.
  • Best and next practices, as well as opportunities, as attendees share their knowledge, insights and experiences on the most relevant topics in recruitment and the impact it has on talent acquisition.
  • The latest recruitment technologies driving innovation and efficiency in talent acquisition process.

All attendees will have their feedback cited and used for an upcoming white paper that will be published in HRO Today Magazine, will have a chance to win an Apple Watch, and will receive a complimentary pass to the HRO Today Forum EMEA event in Dublin, Ireland 6-8 November, 2017!

*Please note: this event is open to HR practitioners with an HR executive title ONLY.
