As challenging as it may seem, this is a great time to be working in talent acquisition. There are so many ways now to connect with talent, and even better, to connect with the talent you need.
The challenges, though, are many. From the shifting balance of power between the employee and employer (employees have it, if you haven’t noticed), to navigating the complexities of talent communications in a digital age, employers are challenged to create and execute talent acquisition and retention programs to an audience on the move. And, as the economy continues to improve, the competition for talent is getting tougher day by day.
Thus, we come to the idea that in today’s world, HR needs to sell. But, what does it mean for HR to sell? For us, it means a couple of key strategic imperatives.
So we come to our new website, and our new blog. Now that we’ve started the conversation, we hope that this will become a place – a community if you will – where we’ll talk about the challenges we face but, more importantly, about the opportunities we can create. Over the months, and years, we’ll share with you our ideas, experiences and expertise, all with an unrelenting focus on improving talent acquisition, talent communications and candidate quality.
We hope that you’ll join in the conversation.
