In order to win the war on talent, smart companies are focusing far beyond the “post-and-wait” game. Although an important component in candidate sourcing strategy, it is but one piece of a complex puzzle—with moving parts. Today’s savvy recruiter understands the need to develop, deploy and cultivate a proactive, long-term strategy in attracting both active and passive candidates.
In fact, progressive organizations view recruiting as an ongoing process that is inextricably linked to their company culture. The lone recruiter or HR rep has been replaced with Talent Acquisition teams who are busy creating Talent Networks, developing branding and disseminating employer messaging across many channels and platforms in order to connect with increasingly sophisticated audiences.
