Despite uncertainty, the wheel of the talent acquisition machine never stops turning and success will continue to be determined by planning an effective strategy with the right balance of people, process and technology.
In our recent survey of 620 talent acquisition professionals,
7 out of 10 respondents are planning for short-term hiring only and around 30 percent lack a post-pandemic plan.
What is more, 3 out of 4 rate their own talent strategies as basic,
meaning they make only limited use of data and technology, and are not fully integrated with business goals.
Rather than stopping on the path, organisations that want to rise in the talent maturity scale are building a bridge to effective planning by viewing their talent acquisition challenges through a people lens—
with processes and technology as an enabler of their strategy.
