  5. 5. Talent Pool vs. Talent Pipeline – what do we mean? • Talent warehouse – just the data – ½ step on from database – source data, some analysis • Talent Pool/Bank – Open and generic roles – Engaged that have already been spoken to and part assessed – skills/culture – Groups of people (normally external) with whom a recruiter/organisation maintains a direct individual relationship for the purpose of future employment, both permanent and temporary, while not currently employing them • Pipeline – more specific roles – old school long list Managing Talent pipelines - specific roles vs. generic talent pool 5
  6. 6. Are talent pools just a ‘Buzzword’ ? Managing Talent pipelines - specific roles vs. generic talent pool 6
  7. 7. The practical bit – what we do • What you are hiring for makes all the difference • Business as usual hiring – Internal/external search – Market/advertise/proactive search • Senior/Critical/Rare Hires – Old School long list approach – a ‘near time’ pipeline – Research based – Succession planning – Internal & external – don’t be too quick to go external • Talent Pool/Puddle – Ties into workforce planning – Location based – Projects Managing Talent pipelines - specific roles vs. generic talent pool 7
  8. 8. Talent Pool - What works • Locking into recruiter objectives – Business need driven – live pool of x engage pipeline Talent pools – 80/20 rule – open vs. Pipeline • Feeding in Employee referrals & New starter referrals • Volume/ repetitive roles Managing Talent pipelines - specific roles vs. generic talent pool 8
  9. 9. Talent Pool – Work in progress • How to Track/engage with pools – Tools needed to make it work – Never forget a birthday – Keeping in touch tough • Be fussy – don’t pool for everything • Be transparent with candidates – tell them what you are doing – but they might not get it • Internal talent • Consistency • ‘Proper marketing’ – Market opportunities, news, ideas etc. but NOT jobs. – Engage across multiple channels e.g. email, blog posts, twitter etc. – Dedicated landing page with relevant content & easy registration Managing Talent pipelines - specific roles vs. generic talent pool 9
  10. 10. What we have found benefits to be • Find better candidates faster – At the moment they are needed – can short cut to interview – A primary concern among business leaders/hiring managers is balancing quality of hire with speed of hire • If you can link with internal talent – very powerful tool • Agency database too broad – your own pool is relevant • Regular dialogue opportunity – increase in referrals Managing Talent pipelines - specific roles vs. generic talent pool 10
