This past week we've shifted our focus towards recruitment and talent acquisition. We've covered many different aspects of the industry, so let's recap on what we've learned about recruitment in the past week.
Recruitment and Talent Acquisition Aren't The Same
While many people think that they are the same thing – they are not. Someone who works in talent acquisition may also have day-to-day recruitment as part of their job responsibilities, but talent acquisition is much broader than recruitment. This is because a recruiter is someone who is in charge of filling up the "normal" job positions within the organisation, but a talent acquisition manager is someone who leads the long term recruitment strategy. This includes recruiting for managerial positions, anticipating which job positions will have an opening in the foreseeable future, and cultivating a good relationship with the potential managerial employees.
Finding The Top Talent Requires a Good Recruitment Strategy
You cannot expect to find & recruit the top talent without having an extensive recruitment strategy. And by this, I don't only mean finding the best places to post your job ads – your strategy should be much deeper than this. Have a good employer branding, utilise all of all your social media, use data wisely and conduct interviews are just some of the things you can do to better your overall strategy and find & recruit the top talents.
Hire a Recruiter on Demand
Hiring a recruiter on demand can solve a lot of your recruitment-related issues. This external team member will save you time, energy and most importantly, money. By having someone solely dedicated to recruiting people for your organisation:
- you'll be able to save time otherwise spent on day-to-day recruitment,
- you'll be able to save your energy for more pressing company matters,
- you'll be able to save money by hiring an external recruiter
With the global workforce shifting more and more towards remote working, hiring a remote recruiter seems like a no-brainer. So, what are you waiting for?
A lot of organisations/companies take recruitment and talent acquisition for granted, but they are really one of the core components of any successful business. Learn to identify the different processes and parts of recruitment, plan out your recruitment strategy to find the top talent and you'll never have problems with filling job positions ever again.
