As the labor market tightens, talent acquisition professionals in 2018 are tasked to fill increasingly specialized positions with shifting talent pools. Skills for today’s jobs are a moving target and the workforce is evolving rapidly.
Talent professionals today must expand their talent pool to include targeted non-traditional education such as credentials and apprenticeships and must also use emerging technologies, data analytics and AI to find the right skilled workers in this evolving market.
Employers will staff on-demand and gig positions, offer alternative work arrangements, emphasize skills over formal education to increase diversity, target passive candidates, and provide ways to rule in candidates that fit their culture and brand in order to improve retention, and not rule candidates out based on outmoded criteria.
More important than the changing trends is the need for employers to maintain focus on maturing practices such as strategic use of recruitment marketing and employer branding; measuring quality of hire; improving the candidate experience; and the shift toward mobile search functionality.
This webinar will address such issues that arise with the changing hiring landscape and provide the tools to help you build, restructure, and refine your hiring process.
