Panel: 5 Things You Need to Know About Total Talent

A recent Staffing Industry Analysts report (commissioned by Alexander Mann Solutions) found that the hiring and sourcing of both permanent and contingent workforce provides a competitive advantage in the marketplace. However, many organizations struggle to optimize their mix of talent to achieve their business objectives at minimum cost.

Total Talent emerged a few years ago in response to current labor market conditions and the need for organizations to adapt to the talent shortage and the fast pace of today’s organizations, among other factors.

In this dynamic panel discussion, a panel of top industry experts discuss the evolving role of Total Talent and answer the following questions: 

  1. What does Total Talent Acquisition (TTA) actually mean?
  2. Why should organizations consider Total Talent as a strategic talent acquisition strategy?
  3. What are some of the critical ingredients for adopting talent acquisition by organizations?
  4. Why is Total Talent not as universally adopted by organizations everywhere?
  5. What is the role of RPO providers in supporting Total Talent Acquisition for their clients?

Access for the webinar and join this fascinating conversation on the current state and future direction of Total Talent Acquisition.
