Moving from Recruitment to Strategic Talent Acquisition
30 November @ 9:30 am - 4:00 pm£399.00
Recruitment is going through a major shift at the moment, responding to the already somewhat more positive economic environment and the renewed focus on the war for talent given rising skills shortages, as well as changing candidate expectations. Smart organisations are also taking advantage of new opportunities and meeting new requirements for looking for the best candidates using increasingly diverse sources and by using a range of different approaches.
This seminar will review the major inputs to the shift in recruitment, using research, case examples, and the trainer’s and participants’ own experiences. In addition, the course will consider the impacts of the shift on participants’ recruitment activities, recruiter capabilities and their recruitment functions.
The five vital tools you will learn about on this course:
- Understand how recruitment can be designed as a strategic approach to talent acquisition
- Have reviewed the technologies available to support recruitment activities and how these can be built into recruitment processes
- Be able to identify the best measures, benchmarks and analytics to help monitor the implementation of recruitment activities
- Understand the likely progression of the recruiting function
- Be able to plan for and navigate through the changing nature of recruitment, selecting the best approaches
