    Talent Markets Outlook

    Talent Markets Outlook

    There is currently much debate and discussion about the talent shortages a number of markets across the world are currently experiencing. There is a lot of focus on the issues caused by the pandemic, but it is important to remember that a lot of the challenges talent acquisition teams are facing are part of existing long term trends that the pandemic has just accelerated.

    My guest this week, returning to the show to share his unique perspective on the current state of talent markets and talent acquisition, is Tim Sackett, co-host of the HR Famous podcast and President of HRU Technical Resources. It's always great to have Tim on the podcast, and he didn't disappoint this time around.

    In the interview, we discuss:

       ▪   Adding nuance to the remote working debate

       ▪   Long term talent market issues

       ▪   How is TA changing?

       ▪   Improvements in automation and recruiting technology

       ▪   Mitigating bias

       ▪   What should TA leaders be focusing on

       ▪   What is on Tim's radar for the next 12 to 18 months

    Future Live: Recruiting Automation

    Future Live: Recruiting Automation

    Back in April, I ran a live podcast conference on the future of talent acquisition in partnership with the team at TA Tech. We had ten excellent speakers across five topic sessions, and I'm delighted to now be able to bring you the content to you as a series of podcasts. I'm releasing these every Friday for the next few weeks, so if you don't want to miss them, make sure you have subscribed to the show.

    Following on from the Recruitment Marketing, Recruitment Advertising, and DE&I sessions I've already published, this week's episode looks at Recruiting Automation. This is a big topic, and I was delighted to have two guests who come at it from very different angles, Trent Cotton, VP Talent Acquisition at Bureau Veritas Group and Roberto Angulo, CEO Recruitology.

    In the conversation, we discuss:

       ▪   The possibilities of recruiting automation

       ▪   Speed of adoption

       ▪   Organization size

       ▪   Key strategic elements

       ▪   The future of Natural Language Processing

    Data & Analytics Skills

    Data & Analytics Skills

    As digital transformation accelerates even faster, the market for data analysts, data scientists and data engineers continues to grow exponentially. So how do employers make sense of this talent market to hire the right skills for their business, and can data science be applied to the process itself to drive better outcomes?

    My guest this week is Tim Freestone from Alooba, a company that is helping to answer these questions and change the way data and analytics skills are assessed. Our discussion is extensive, and Tim shares some valuable insights relevant not just to recruiting data professionals but also broader talent acquisition strategies.

    In the interview, we discuss:

       ▪   Job definitions in data science and the current state of the talent market

       ▪   Issues with traditional recruiting processes

       ▪   Why the CV is a poor quality data set

       ▪   Generating structured data around skills

       ▪   Removing unconscious bias

       ▪   Pragmatic analytics, automating repeatable tasks and human intelligence

    ATS Integration

    ATS Integration

    The idea of a TA Tech stack has gone mainstream very quickly. It makes perfect sense as employers look to have fit for purpose technology to support all elements of their talent acquisition strategy. While integration is a lot easier than it was a few years ago, there are still significant challenges that TA leaders need to understand and prepare for. So what are the key issues?

    My guest this week is the perfect person to talk us through the current market situation and provide some practical advice. Peter Gold has been working in the ATS market since day one and has a vast amount of knowledge and experience to share.

    In the interview, we discuss:

       ▪   The current state of the ATS market

       ▪   The key integration issues

       ▪   Asking for evidence of integrations

       ▪   Challenges in volume

       ▪   AI, humans and automation

    Talent Engagement

    Talent Engagement

    Building and engaging with talent pipelines has been something we have been discussing for years, but it has always surprised that there are so few employers who do it well and even fewer that do it over extended periods. Technology, recruiting and communication have evolved significantly over the last two years, opening up opportunities for companies to devise very sophisticated pipelining and engagement strategies to help address resourcing challenges such as diversity hiring and skill shortages.

    So who is doing this well, and how are they doing it?

    My guest this week is Jason Boone, Diversity & Military Outreach Leader at Lockheed Martin. Lockheed Martin has a long-term talent pipeline strategy that sees them engage some communities of talent for 3 to 8 years before hiring.

    In the interview, we discuss:

       ▪   The recruiting challenges at Lockheed Martin

       ▪   Investing in the emerging workforce

       ▪   Long term engagement strategies to increase diversity

       ▪   The role of time and touchpoints in building the brand, creating relationships, driving efficiency and improving offer acceptance

       ▪   Content strategies

       ▪   Time focused candidate-centric resources.

       ▪   The most surprising hiring success

       ▪   The role of technology

       ▪   Pushing talent across the enterprise

       ▪   Mashing up strategies and technologies
