The key to making improvement on any aspect of recruiting is to first measure it. We have to understand where we are first, before we are able to get to where we want to be going.

TALENT INTELLIGENCE - WHAT, WHY, HOW

Do you know what 'talent intelligence' is?

You'd be forgiven if you didn't, because it's a concept which has stubbornly stayed on the fringes of the TA, mainly due to strategic neglect by businesses who had long under estimated the impact acquiring top talent had on the bottom line.

But as businesses better understand the importance of the talent they have a their disposal, Talent Intelligence is becoming a function distinct with the TA function, sitting in between traditional recruiter and analytics. They are there to tell you where the best talent is in the market - where best to put the jobs, where best to put the recruiter hiring for those jobs.

We're going to be talking about Talent Intelligence in Ep102 of Brainfood Live On Air, with some of the leading brains in the industry - Leila Mortet, Talent Intelligence at Philips, Toby Culshaw, Talent Intelligence Lead at Amazon and Allison Ettridge, Founder at Talent Intuition.

Brainfood Live On Air 101 - How to hire when you’re overwhelmed by Job Applications

March 19, 2021

HOW TO HIRE (WHEN YOUR OVERLOADED WITH JOB APPLICATIONS?)

Over the past 12 months we've observed the phenomenon of surging applicant volume, with numbers from 100-1000% more than the same moment the year before.  For many industries, especially ones which are absorbing workers from industries made dormant by lockdown, handing excess volume of job applications has become THE hiring challenge to tackle.

The shift to remote - and the 'hire from anywhere' approach - suggests that this pattern of high volume job applications can be expected for many types of job role.

- How to structure your TA team to handle it?
- How do you maintain / improve candidate experience?
- Does your relationship with the hiring managers change?
- What tech stack do you need to handle the volume?
- How do you ensure the TA team - the recruiter experience - remains intact?

All this and more in Ep101 of Brainfood Live On Air. We're with Clair Bush, VP of Marketing at ph.creative, Jelmer Koppelmans Founder at Roadtrip and Ben Gledhill, Head of Resourcing at Thames Water

Brainfood Live On Air - Ep99 - Employer Branding Tips for a Remote First World

Brainfood Live On Air - Ep99 - Employer Branding Tips for a Remote First World

March 5, 2021

LETS FACE IT: Pre-covid, a great deal of Employer branding was focused on the physical space of the office building and the on premise experience that new employees could expect to have upon joining.. This was the reason for the huge investment employers made in commercial real estate, opening up space for WeWork (remember them?) to create a category which promised the experience without the fixed costs.

NOW THIS,

- we're all at home, working remote
- we don't care about the conditions of the office
- we're beginning to not care about the location of the office

WHAT DOES ALL THIS MEAN FOR EMPLOYER BRANDING?

How do companies communicate their EB when the physical environment isn't going to change for the employee? Some top tips on how to do this from our guests this week - Steve Ward (Universum) Heidi Wassini, Global Talent Acquisition. Helen Durkin EB Program Lead, Indeed.com  & Employer Branding Partner, Vivino & Akbar Karenga Head of Talent (Storyblok)

Ep99 is sponsored by our buddies CA3
