Strategic Talent Acquisition through People Analytics

Finding and hiring the right people is one of the biggest challenges facing business as we navigate the pandemic and plan for the post-Covid future.

While the operational side has its unique challenges, the strategic perspective is also changing, and new elements are being drawn into the decision-making process. As always, data and analytics are the compass for high-performing organisations, enabling robust decisions that make a measurable contribution towards these strategic goals.

What will our business need over the next 5-10 years? How will automation and hybrid working affect our employer proposition? What skills do we currently have in our workforce, do they match our changing operating model, and what must we do to access the talent pools that we need to achieve our goals, now that the best person for the job could be located anywhere in thew world?

This panel will bring together senior and strategic Talent Acquisition leaders at three high-profile companies, and will discuss these questions and more. What are Amazon, Capital One and AstraZeneca doing to use strategic Talent Acquisition analytics to get ahead of the competition? Find out here, only at People Analytics World.
