THE SHOW
Talent acquisition models are constantly evolving. Methods of recruitment that worked in the past while your business was still small might no longer be fit for purpose.
You need to be adaptable. Be open to pivoting your recruitment models.
If you adapt as your business grows, you’ll be able to understand what consumer behaviour is driving change in the sector. And if you keep pace with it, you’ll learn from people further along on the same journey, those who’ve grown their businesses into great success stories.
These people will have already faced similar challenges, risen to the occasion, and have implemented game-changing strategies as a response.
The episodes of Talent-Ed feature conversations with key industry figures in a relaxed environment - where they can be as open and honest as they like. This provides them with the perfect opportunity to share real-life stories, consisting of everything from challenges and failures to successes and invaluable lessons.

TALENT-ED
Growing at pace is all about being agile. Working smarter. Doing more with less.
But how does that philosophy influence the way you cultivate talent pools? Approach Diversity & Inclusion? Or think about granular technical issues, like which ATS would be the most beneficial for your business to use?
You need a robust strategy for your business to grow. Your people must be at the core of it.
How do you scale successfully, keeping your values and processes intact, at the same time making sure your current team stays engaged?
There’s no one-size-fits-all approach, and that’s why we launched the Talent-Ed. To guide ambitious business leaders to find the right candidates for the role. It’s also a space where experienced leaders of large-scale businesses can share their greatest successes, inspiring others to follow in their footsteps.
The best talent isn’t always looking for new opportunities, but when you have the right talent acquisition strategy in place, you’ll know exactly how to attract brilliant people to your business.

A great listen - lots of actionable tips!

I’ve been really enjoying these conversations. They effortlessly make the case for the power and importance of good, consistent employer employer branding in an successful talent attraction and retention strategy. Is there really a war for talent, or is it actually a war for attention?
Great stuff, full of actionable tips and tricks.
