Today the Talent Management Alliance (TMA), shared additional details about its upcoming 2015 Strategic Recruitment Summit. The event is to be held at the Sheraton Miami Airport Hotel from February 25-27, 2015. The third annual Strategic Recruitment Summit will explore how organizations can repair disconnects between their talent acquisition goals and processes thereby achieving them, on the topics of: Employer branding, meaningful metrics, and strategic sourcing.
The pre-conference day will feature, Dr. Mia Mulrennan, I/O Psychologist, President and Chief Motivations Mapper of Rave-Worthywho will lead an interactive workshop that will show how interviewing, metrics, branding, and internal mobility strategies can become more powerful when infused with I/O psychology
The following two-day event will bring case-studies from industry experts and companies such as: CH2M HILL, Deluxe Corporation, Hewlett-Packard, Walmart-Stores Inc., Dow Jones, Adcap Network Systems, EDG Inc., Charles Schwab & Co., Inc., Bristol-Myers Squibb, TransUnion, and more.
The importance of this event cannot be understated. In the past three years there has been a massive influx of people entering the job market. An online ad generates hundreds, if not thousands, of responses. According to the 2014 Brandon Hall Talent Acquisition Benchmarking Survey, nearly 80% of survey respondents rated their overall talent acquisition efforts as less than highly effective, yet companies still find it hard to find skilled people.
For one, the sheer volume of mismatched talent makes it more difficult to review potential candidates. As the economy sheds more jobs in the lower skilled areas, more average and below average candidates apply for positions and the percentage of qualified applicants goes down. The aging workforce has also impacted the talent pool. Baby boomers may have delayed their retirement but are now leaving the workforce. As they depart, so do their knowledge and skills. The result will be more competition in the market for the perfect fit candidates.
“Interviews we conducted with over 100 talent acquisition leaders resulted in this year’s focus of the event to be about repairing disconnects between talent acquisition goals and processes. With over-whelming agreement, our interviewees said that exploring how to align their talent goals with strategies within topics such as employer branding, metrics around ROI, branding, social recruiting, and other strategic sourcing initiatives, would be the most beneficial to them." said Amanda Lewis, TMA's Talent Acquisition Community Leader
