In recent years, diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) has been a major topic of discussion in every industry. So much so, that it’s become a determining factor in the type, quality, and quantity of talent an organization attracts. In today’s market, candidates care deeply about what businesses are doing to foster an environment where inclusion is at the center and for the relocation industry, having equitable policies and practices is an essential part of the process. Leaders must ensure equity for all employees by becoming knowledgeable of implicit biases, staying compliant with housing laws, and even becoming familiar with the cultural changes a transferee may experience while on assignment. Here Karen Cedillos, SVP of Relocation Operations for Corporate Relocation International (CRI) shares strategies for building an inclusive mobility program that will better position organizations for attracting and retaining top talent.
Hiring demands don’t stay the same for long, and with an abundance of variables in today’s market, many talent acquisition (TA) leaders think that this fluctuation has been more prevalent now than ever before. According to recent research, acquisition goals appear vastly different for many companies, with 93% of employers undergoing some sort of hiring this year, an 11% increase from 2021. And at the same time, 10% of companies have implemented a hiring freeze this year or plan to do so. So, depending on the desired outcome, hiring needs may go up or down and often at lightning speed.
These times call for an agile talent acquisition strategy, one that can easily scale up and down. Whether key talent is needed now or in the future, being prepared is critical. Here, Ryan Carfley, President and CEO of Personify, shares how to create an effective and efficient solution to tackle variable hiring needs.
