This Week in Talent (20 Aug)

This week we have research findings on the impact of remote working on 12,000 employees and how you as a TA leader can help to manage them, a “3-layer” strategy that will take your sourcing onto the next level, a thought provoking video about the state of Recruitment Marketing today, and more!

Have a read and you will find out what you need to do to create an attractive workplace for your future Talent.

Video: Is there a lack of thinking in recruitment marketing and TA?

Excellent insights from one of our ATC contributors Mark Pearce on the general lack of thinking in recruitment marketing and TA, and advice on how we can get over “effortless (aka lazy) thinking”.
