Meet the 2018 Talent Acquisition Leader of the Year Award finalists.
By Marta Chmielowicz
Without the right talent in the right positions, businesses are unable to move forward with their strategy for the future. In fact, according to LinkedIn’s 2017 Global Recruiting Trends report, 83 percent of HR leaders say that talent is the number one priority for their organization.
But keeping up with talent demands in today’s business landscape is a challenge, with Korn Ferry Futurestep’s global study, The Talent Forecast, reporting that 54 percent of respondents said it’s harder to find qualified talent compared to one year ago. And identifying and developing future talent will only continue to get more difficult.
That is why innovative leadership in the talent acquisition function is so essential to business success, and why HRO Today recognizes the most innovative leaders in the HR space with its annual Talent Acquisition Leader of the Year Awards. From integrating artificial intelligence technology in the screening process to leveraging data as a tool for workforce planning, this year’s finalists have truly shaped the world of recruitment.
