Talent Acquisition

The Talent Acquisition Process Doesn’t Have to Be So Time Consuming or Complex

Share this post:

With the constant transformation and diversification taking place in all spheres of work today, the process of talent acquisition has become both crucial to business success and highly competitive. Considerable resources are being focused on marketing to and acquiring top talent. However, given that recruiters say 39 percent of recent hires would not be rehired, how do you ensure you make the best possible hiring choices every time?

Recruiters need to get through myriad tasks every day: sift through multiple job requisitions, mine through resume after resume to find the right talent based on specific required attributes, prioritize requests in order of time-to-fill – the list goes on. With all of this to be done, research indicates recruiters get only about 6 seconds to actually spend in determining best fit! Despite integrating analytics into the talent acquisition process, large chunks of time are spent setting expectations and tracking and communicating progress, while simultaneously ensuring a smooth and efficient process for stakeholders.

At IBM, we think that recruiting processes need to change to meet today’s needs. Imagine the potential for time, effort, and money saved from being able to pinpoint the talent your company needs with precision and minimal complexity, and from the resulting increases in productivity and lowered attrition.

What’s more, it can integrate with leading applicant tracking systems to do this. You will gain the ability to prioritize stakeholder requisitions, analyze candidate skills precisely and match them with those your company is looking for, and shape better conversations with candidates by bringing together information from various sources through social listening capabilities.
