DISCLAIMER! 
We are not completely there yet, 
but “the plane is moving down the runway.”
A transactional Talent Acquisition team 
What does that look like? 
1. Too many requisitions for one person to handle

  • 15. A transactional Talent Acquisition team What does this mean overall? …like we’re order takers. 15
  • 16. …but simply being transactional isn’t good enough anymore.  Hiring manager assumptions are not always correct  Time to challenge the status quo  Warm pipelines are a must  Company brand does not equal talent brand 16
  • 17. Get a “seat at the table” • Proactive versus reactive • Gives credibility when Talent Acquisition truly understands and can speak the “language” of the business • Generates authority when challenging hiring manager assumptions
  • 18. A strategic Talent Acquisition team What does that look like? 1. Comfortable volume of requisitions for the type(s) of role 18 being hired

  • 25. A strategic Talent Acquisition team What does that look like? 8. Process is not our largest focus – now turning to pipeline 25 management and becoming a strategic advisor
  • 26. A strategic Talent Acquisition team What does that look like? 9. Our careers page is our top source of hire – make it a true 26 destination site
  • 27. A strategic Talent Acquisition team What does that look like? 10.Survey hiring managers, new hires, and non-hires for 27 satisfaction and attraction
  • 28. A strategic Talent Acquisition team What does that mean overall? …like we’re decision influencers. 28
  • 29. “…but how do we get there?” 29 Build a business case Educate and train Invest in tools and resources  Convince senior leadership about your intent and vision  Gain buy-in from your Talent Acquisition management team  Be prepared for some leaders in various departments/divisions to not agree with this model – work to gain support from “up top”  Educate your team on why this is critical for your company and ask for their ideas on how to get there  Train, train, train and measure performance (surveys and quality of hire (over time)) - Some of your team might leave – that’s ok! For both you and them.  Continue training and educating – making sure the team attends professional development events/webinars/conferences  Celebrate individuals on the team that have small and large wins – especially to gain buy-in and role-modeling  Get the right tools that support a strategic model  SEO/SEM  CRM  employment brand  passive outreach  Explore options for dedicated sourcing specialists – maybe a team of sourcers  Possibly engage a 3rd party recruitment consultant organization to help, but it’s not necessary
  • 30. Be a visionary. • Less stress on the Talent Acquisition team, promoting better retention • Strengthen the critical need for Talent Acquisition within the company • Better talent means a better business – period.
  • 31. “Begin with the end in mind.” -Stephen Covey

Editor's Notes

  1. Various divisions were starting to ask for talent at a much faster rate than we could deliver. And the quality of applicant applying to our jobs simply didn’t have enough depth. Even being a well-known brand, we weren’t seeing exceptional talent “knock down our door” as much as we would like – forcing to us post the job longer and sometimes settle for a weak batch of applicants. If we can’t deliver top talent to our hiring managers, there was fear of what might happen to our department?
  2. Too many requisitions for one person to handle “Post and pray” Talent Acquisition only hears about the vacancy the day the person leaves Focus on time to fill Hiring managers expect Talent Acquisition to do most of the leg work with attracting talent “Hurry up and wait.” Hiring managers want resumes yesterday, but then they don’t respond back about which ones they want to interview Too hard to fill? Let’s try posting on a job board… Process driven recruiting team – great at following directions Our careers page is our top source of hire What do our hiring managers and new hires think of us? Are they satisfied?
