The dawn of new age talent acquisition

As per, Global Recruitment Insights and Data, by Bullhorn, 61 percent of respondents cited candidate sourcing as a top priority, and engaging candidates came in second (36 percent). A variety of other paths also emerged. 31 percent said that they will prioritize digital transformation to improve their operations, 30 percent chose developing their employment brand and enhancing their marketing strategies as a top priority, and 24 percent are prioritising how they manage relationships with clients.  

The rapid pace of development, disruptions at every corner for each industry, changing demand for skill sets and the increased scarcity of talent, all of this and much more have pushed the traditional Talent Acquisition practices away to make way for new age approaches.
