Crowd Hacking Talent Stack & Process Design

In this 50 minute hands-on workshop, you’ll be working with table leads to each design and create one element of a TA process. Using the collective intelligence of each of the groups, we’ll then put together new TA process and stack that preserves the human element of TA whilst combining it with the most powerful tools on the market today. You will be asked to contribute to one area of expertise:

  • Briefing & understanding the roles
  • Marketing & Branding
  • Culture & Skills profiling
  • Sourcing & Screening
  • Assessment & Interview
  • Compliance & Reporting

Simon will introduce you to Customer Centred Design Thinking and Journey Maps, as you work to design an exciting new solution.
