Ultimately, talent acquisition professionals have one clear goal: to get the right talent in the right place at the right time to achieve business needs. Unfortunately, many companies take a “whack-a-mole” approach by working to fill one open position and then jumping right to another, neglecting to see how the hires fit into the company’s long-term strategy.
There is a better way.
Korn Ferry’s President of Global RPO Solutions, Jeanne MacDonald, talks about the three questions talent acquisition professionals must ask themselves to construct a strategy for finding and keeping the right talent.
With Miguel Terrizzano, President of Pierpoint International
The U.S. unemployment rate is currently hovering around a 50-year low. During that half-century, the population has grown by approximately 120 million people. The economy has shifted from a manufacturing economy to a service one, and is headed toward what Miguel Terrizzano, president of Pierpoint International, calls an innovation economy. Organizations have de-constructed corporate hierarchy, employ technologies to embrace non-traditional workers, and are expanding their searches beyond the boarder of their own industries to find talent. What does this all mean? Here, Terrizzano explains how HR and organizations can get ahead in an ever-changing workforce.

Here, Tina Tromiczak, senior vice president, national account services for RPO at ADP, offers several strategies that organizations can leverage to improve their candidate experience and ensure they are an employer of choice in today’s competitive marketplace.

With Kristin Shulman, Head of Digital Marketing and Brand, Allegis Global Solutions
In today’s global economy, five generations are working side by side for the first time in history—each with its own skillsets, communication preferences, and leadership styles. Faced with this increasingly diverse talent pool, immense technological innovation, and the growing expectation of a consumer-like experience, organisations must adopt a flexible, adaptive approach to recruitment or risk getting left behind. Partnering with an RPO firm that provides a consultative approach could be the secret ingredient to succeeding in the war for talent.

It’s a proven fact. Having the right talent in the right roles is the key to an organization’s financial success. All too often however, those in the talent acquisition space are too pressured by deadlines and cost cutting to effectively hire the best people who can grow the business long-term.
And while many HR leaders think they can save money by keeping all recruiting functions in house, it’s a long-term strategy that could ultimately cost companies millions of dollars in terms of lost opportunity, due to less-than-stellar talent decisions.
