Workforce Intelligence and how it will Reshape Talent Acquisition
A new era of Workforce Intelligence has arrived that has the potential to significantly ‘change the game’ for Talent Functions. Having visibility of talent and skills in your entire ecosystem (internal, external, perm, contingent) is increasingly becoming a reality and presents Talent functions with immense opportunity.
As skill supply and demand is better understood, it is possible that workforce planning, talent acquisition and talent management functions have a real shot at morphing to become the ecosystem talent professionals have dreamed of. Gareth Flynn from TQSolutions will discuss in conversation with Belinda Willis, Head of Talent Acquisition at Deloitte, who are on their own workforce intelligence journey, they will discuss:
- The value and outcomes Workforce Intelligence provides organisations
- Implementation considerations and taking stakeholders on the journey
- Changes to Talent functions and roles
- The technology enabling the intelligence
- Hindsight and lessons learnt
