Ep 299: Talent Acquisition Has Changed
Talent acquisition has been forced to change more during 2020 than at any other time in its history as a function. It's now several months since the pandemic turned everything upside down, and I think it is an important time to reflect on the impact of the changes that have been made and their sustainability into the future.
