Recognizing the importance of developing an effective recruitment strategy, and incorporating current developments in the age of talent acquisition
Attracting, motivating and retaining talent is critical to an employer's success.
There has been a shift in the tools and techniques used by employers to attract talent in light of advances in technology and business needs. An effective recruitment strategy should not only align with workforce plans, but also attract top performers to a job vacancy. To remain at the top of their game, employers need to respond to key trends when it comes to acquiring talent. This includes a range of activities, such as:
- Diversifying the workforce;
- Reducing unconscious bias;
- Increasing use of analytics;
- Hiring millennials;
- Leveraging mobile technology; and
- Responding to the emergence of the gig economy.
These talent acquisition trends are changing the landscape for how employers are recruiting and hiring for the best job candidates in order to remain competitive in the marketplace.
