The Talent Acquisition Leader of the Future

In today’s environment, the skills and roles businesses need to succeed are constantly changing. While the TA team of the past could rely on a clear hierarchical structure and stable roles, the picture today looks very different.  TA leaders have a new strategic role: shaping their people strategy to attract talent and ensuring that their employer brand helps rather than hinders. 

The combination of economic instability and the pace of technological change has resulted in a significant restructuring of the job market.. Organisations need a TA function that works strategically to keep pace with changing needs and gives the organisation a competitive advantage to attract the best people.  This includes adapting to new technology, optimising the candidate experience, embedding diversity and inclusion in the TA process, and using data to guide individual offers and the overall talent acquisition strategy.

As the role of the TA leaders evolves, so must their characteristics. Here are the elements that transform today’s TA leader from a support function to a leading voice in shaping the business's future.

Ensures that decisions that impact talent acquisition can be informed and challenged where necessary. 

Champions the company's purpose and values and leads the process of defining them where they don’t exist or aren’t fit for purpose. 

Employees are looking for more than just a job; they want an organisation that shares their values and gives them a strong sense of purpose. What may have once been a footnote is now a cornerstone of the talent attraction strategy employers must take seriously, from communication to upholding the values across the organisation.
