Talent acquisition teams are feeling the change in the industry which includes the pace of change with enabling technologies, the demand to pivot to non-traditional sourcing methods and changes in the labour market.
In this revived war for talent, companies need to pivot to focus on new and non-traditional acquisition strategies. Three examples of these are:
- Hiring for potential not skills via hire/train/deploy programmes and upskilling existing employees,
- a razor focus on employer brand where company values are amplified authentically and
- a recognition that values are the new currency.
