The Staffing Stream: be a strategic talent advisor.

October 2, 2019 Kim Fahey

Everywhere you turn there are new HR innovations promising transformative solutions, and they’re being well received. In fact, according to Randstad Sourceright’s 2019 Talent Trends Report, 92% of human capital leaders believe technology enhances the attraction, engagement and retention of talent.

Most of the new HR tech is centered on helping to attract, source, engage, screen and hire talent. All of which offers new opportunities to elevate talent acquisition with better candidate insights, deeper reach into talent markets and greater efficiency for recruiters. The challenge comes in keeping up with the digitization of traditional tasks and, of course, the overall speed of change.

Kimberly Fahey, SVP of global client delivery at Randstad Sourceright, designs custom talent solutions to help organizations achieve business goals through smart people strategies. In her latest Staffing Stream article, she offers insights she’s gained by working with the latest HR tech to help you become more strategic and more effectively manage change.

For example, Fahey suggests creating an advisory panel to evaluate current technologies, identify the most impactful solutions and select new technologies that are adaptable to future needs. She also recommends reviewing talent acquisition processes and getting outside expertise to support and implement best practices.
