Ep 410: Recruiting Fundamentals

As employers continue to struggle to find the talent they need, it is fascinating to see talent acquisition teams forensically picking their recruiting processes apart and reimagining them to reflect the reality of 2022. While talent intelligence, AI, and automation play a part, some human fundamentals sit at the heart of an effective TA strategy.


So what should recruiters be focusing on, and how different is the talent market of 2022 from those in the past. My guest this week is somewhat of a recruiting legend and has strong opinions based on his decades in the industry. Lou Adler, CEO of Performance-based Hiring Learning Systems, is a prolific author, speaker and trainer. Keep listening to hear his thoughts on how best to deal with the challenges employers are currently facing.


In the interview, we discuss:


  • Is the current market really unprecedented?


  • What should recruiters be focusing on?


  • Designing recruiting processes


  • Go to market positioning.


  • Results versus competencies and experience


  • Predictive indicators and confirming indicators


  • Hiring manager


  • The role of technology


  • The future
