2021 State of Talent Acquisition Report

If there was a perfect storm in the world of talent, it would be one that promises high demand, low supply, precarious market conditions, challenging new health and regulatory requirements, and a wave of resignations. Some talent functions are facing the storm in a warship with a well-defined battle strategy and others in a sailboat, underequipped and unprepared.

Talent teams are feeling much of this burden already and the outlook heading into 2022 appears to contain similar levels of volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity.

In September, we surveyed talent teams from 144 leading Australian and New Zealand companies to get their take on the current state of talent. The results give us a clear insight into recruitment trends, how talent teams are feeling, and what the talent priorities are right now.

The 2021 State of Talent Acquisition Report, delivered by ATC Events & Media in partnership with Globalization Partners, provides a deep-dive look into the current state of talent in Australia and New Zealand, including:

  • how well talent teams are currently delivering the right talent at the right time
  • the extent to which talent teams are funded to weather the talent challenges ahead
  • the relationship between talent acquisition functions and talent management functions
  • how the average TA team’s tech stack performs
  • the untapped talent potential of global markets
  • the real facts behind The Great Resignation
  • the extent to which the role of salary is being used as a weapon in the talent wars
  • future expectations for flexibility and working from home
  • the current state of candidate experience
  • the extent to which TA is actually making diversity a priority
  • a snapshot of how talent teams are feeling right now and what their energy levels are
  • recommendations for success in the year ahead
  • and much more!
