Ep 396: Talent Acquisition Revolution
We often talk about evolution in talent acquisition. That has always seemed appropriate in an area where the pace of change has been relatively slow compared to other areas of the corporation. However, what we are seeing now is much more like a revolution as talent shortages, changing business priorities, and rapid technological advancement send shock waves through the industry.
So what does talent acquisition transformation now look like, and how are employers moving at pace to keep up with the changing landscape.
