  • Summary

    With people and talent at the heart of the business agenda and jobs in a state of constant change, the value of an established, holistic, and data-driven talent acquisition strategy has never been more important.

    Economic instability has caused a shift in talent strategy – from bringing in the right talent for today, toward growing and developing talent for the future. Many companies are seeing their early careers talent as the foundation on which to build a workforce that they need for the future: a talent marketplace that feeds the pipeline of roles they will have to fill in the coming years.

    To be able to grow your own talent you need to start with a well-rounded view of early career applicants and their fit within the organization, their readiness for the role, and their potential for the longer term. It is imperative you gather the talent intelligence you need to make the right hiring decisions and build a development path for their future within your organization.
