#RPOA Weekly: Talent Acquisition vs. Recruitment

By Lamees Abourahma Tue, Oct 17,2017 @ AM

One-half of organizations surveyed by SHRM in a 2016 report cited factors such as a low number of applicants (51%), lack of the needed work experience among candidates (50%) and competition from other employers (49%) as reasons for difficulty finding candidates for their open positions.

With challenging recruiting conditions in the current labor market (according to 68% of HR professionals), a more strategic talent acquisition approach is likely to position employers better for the talent war than tactical recruiting activities. Our #RPOA Weekly highlights the difference between strategic vs. tactical talent acquisition and some characteristics of the new talent landscape.

The Alignment Between Business Strategy And HR - And The Role of RPO in This Paradigm

By Pam Verhoff Thu, Aug 11,2016 @ AM

I often define HR as “everything people”, therefore the essence of HR has to be strategic. As HR expands beyond its traditional administrative role, that shift provides a significant impact on an organization’s value creation. To properly align HR with the business strategy, the structure must support having the senior HR leader involved in the strategic planning process. It’s then that HR leader’s responsibility to ensure the entire executive team understands that it is human capital that impacts all areas of an organization. In turn, the HR function needs to ensure the human asset is effectively aligned with the business strategy. The focus on business strategy needs to be addressed within every department of HR – Talent Acquisition, Compensation & Benefits, Performance Management, Employee Development & Employee Relations.

Social media isn’t always the first place that talent managers think of when it comes to sourcing talent, but one might argue that in the near future, it might be. As of June in 2015, there are about 83 million millennials, which represents more than one quarter of the US population. That’s a segment of the population who is well-adjusted with social media. Understanding and engaging in that landscape is becoming increasingly important, if not mandatory for recruiting and staffing professionals.
