Sarah White

Talent Acquisition Leader, Lion

Lion’s “Future Talent” Experiment

When critical roles become vacant the pressure is on to attract and hire quickly but going to market takes time. What if there was engaged Talent who had already met with Managers, ready to go?

Sarah will share how she worked with People & Culture to leverage internal succession planning data to understand the risk areas for the business and put an external market lens over this data and engaging Future Talent early. As we know the problem is scarce Talent seldom respond to recruiters when a vacancy is live, let alone penciled for a later date.

In this session, Sarah will share how Lion began experimenting with engaging Hiring Managers to lead focused Talent conversations and the results they have experienced to date.

The benefits are endless – greater awareness of external Talent markets for critical roles, greater leader accountability and engagement, faster time to fill, increased quality and delivery of an exceptional candidate experience.
