TALENT ACQUISITION VS RECRUITING

We understand that each one of our clients are unique in their own way. With this in mind; we approach each engagement with a very open mind and a passion to understand our client’s perspective.

The term “Talent Acquisition” is not new however very few organizations and technology teams embrace that there is a difference between Talent Acquisition and Recruiting. Based on our experiences and numerous industry studies; it is important for us to help our clients understand the difference between these two common used terms:

  • Talent Acquisition — a pro-active strategic approach to identifying, attracting and onboarding top talent to efficiently and effectively meet dynamic business needs
  • Recruiting — Recruiting is a merely a subset of talent acquisition, and includes the activities of sourcing, screening, interviewing, assessing, selecting and hiring

We find that many organizations and technology teams fail to deploy a functional talent acquisition strategy. As a result, they struggle to find the root cause of their recruiting struggles.
