Building ‘Talent Tribes’

‘Building Talent Tribes’ was the topic of conversation between Giles and Mo and included some great advice on how to create trusted networks for advice and support both across Recruitment and Talent Acquisition and wider business areas.

Mo talked about how the current job market could be described as ‘noisy’. There are a huge number of people currently looking for work and organisations are finding it difficult to cope with the volumes of applications coming through. Managing the level of applications can be hard and candidates are expecting a much better experience. It is important to take a step back and position ourselves as Talent Acquisition professionals for the future rather than transactional recruiters.
