  2. 2. For the sixth edition of the Belong Executive Briefing, we brought our Round Table Discussion to the Radisson Blu Plaza, Hyderabad
  3. 3. The invite-only event included some of the country's most forward-thinking Talent Leaders from Hyderabad to discuss the some of the top challenges in Talent Acquisition today, and how to prepare for the future. 
  4. 4. How should Talent Acquisition teams go beyond mainstream solutions?
  5. 5. "For specific targeted hiring, the old direct ways do not work, we need new age solutions that could help improve likelihood of joining." Vinay Agarwal Head  - Business HR,  Tech Mahindra
  6. 6. "We are working on artificial intelligence to help identify candidates who, not only match the skill set, but are also culturally fit for our organisation." Deepti Varma Director HR, Amazon
  7. 7. "It is essential to build technologies that always keeps the candidate first. The focus is not on finding more profiles that meet the requirement but finding the right people and eventually hiring and ensuring they join.” Parthasarathy Sarangapani Head -Talent Acquisition, Pegasystems
  8. 8. How to enable alignment of HR and Business as strategic partners?
  9. 9. "The alignment with business is a lot better in today’s world than it used to be earlier. It was alignment with business that helped me improve the efficiency of my talent acquisition team from 11 members to 4 members handling similar volumes" Rajita Singh Head- HR, Broadridge
  10. 10. "Dialogues involving talent acquisition on how talent can impact gross revenues and margins are very important. As a recruiter one should know how much business impact he/she is making." Karuna Kumar Vempala Senior Director - Talent Acquisition, Cigniti Technologies
  11. 11. "Business and HR do not have the choice to not be aligned. Many times HR is the function that compromises on the style of working to align with the most important Business needs.” Muralidhar Teppala Director - Talent Acquisition, EPAM Systems
  12. 12. "At Hitachi, Business even played an important role in designing the Hitachi Fit way of analysing culture fit.  The cultural fit based hiring that is followed in Hitachi has created a cylindrical funnel which is different from the regular conical funnel which is based on disqualifications”  Sandhya Rao Anappindi Head University Relations, Hitachi Consulting Software Services
  13. 13. What capabilities should TA be investing in today, to be future-ready?
  14. 14. "I would personally like to call myself a business professional who contributes to the growth and revenue of the organisation than being identified as an HR head in the traditional sense. That's fundamentally what I look for every-time I have to hire in my team.” India Hiring Head, Virtusa Consulting Services Meka Venkata Chalapathy
  15. 15. "Recruitment is today is a sales function where recruiters are selling dreams to candidates. Every organisation needs to have a single face which includes both the HR and the business on the same page giving the right message to candidates.” Head Human Resources - APAC, Rockwell Collins Aditya Rajan
  16. 16. "There is a striking need today to look at talent acquisition differently with different lenses. Looking at a function from a different perspective will always add value. " Tojo Eapen Senior Manager, Talent Acquisition APAC, Polycom
  17. 17. "A recruiter today is not just bringing in the numbers, but at the same time has to walk a candidate through the entire interview process and make sure he/she succeeds. A recruiter is truly a business partner in many ways now." Director HR - JDA Software Sindhu P Aravindakshan
