The Questions You Need to Ask to Have a Successful Talent Acquisition and Management Program

Talent Strategy

With Jeanne MacDonald, President of Global RPO Solutions, Korn Ferry

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.

Proactive Talent Approaches

Miguel Terrizzano

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.

New research shows the drivers of RPO are changing as the market matures.

By Nikki Edwards

Fact: The world of work is changing, and so is the world of recruitment. The accelerating pace of technological advancement and the global shortage of talent are probably the two most significant factors driving that change. So too are preferences for a more consumerized and personalized experience and having a social media presence. Alongside are the complexities of working with a multigenerational workforce, an aging workforce, economic and political uncertainty, and the emergence of next-generation industries and jobs.

Enabling a Better Relationship with an RPO Partner

RPO partner

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.

Next-level RPO

RPO Partnerships

RPO partnerships are moving beyond the transactional and entering the realm of the strategic.

By Simon Kent

The days of using an RPO provider to simply deal with the grunt work of recruiting people into an organisation are over. Today’s competitive market—both in terms of the employment market where talent is scarcer than ever and the RPO market itself—means providers must demonstrate that they can bring extra value to the organisations with which they are working. Achieving this means becoming a specialist in more than recruitment alone.

Cracking the Code: The RPO Process that Brings the Best Business Results

Korn Ferry

By Jeanne MacDonald, President, Global RPO Solutions, Korn Ferry

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.
