The challenge of finding and engaging talent is a top concern, but companies are exploring solutions that are becoming best practices.
Two talent acquisition events, in two cities, in two weeks, and one common problem. That was my conclusion as I traveled back recently from the Consero Forum in Newport Beach, CA. Though Consero’s event was for the benefit of talent acquisition leaders in enterprise organizations, and the 2017 HRO Today Forum was aimed at staffing and RPO management, I heard a universal theme: The persistent, acute challenge of finding and engaging talent, especially in revenue-generating positions such as sales, engineering, and nursing and allied health positions. To cope with this year-after-year issue, companies and staffing firms across sectors are exploring solutions, some of which are emerging as best practices.
Emerging Best Practices for Engaging Talent
Two of the trends talked up at the forums are the same strategies for engaging talent that we’re hearing in our meetings with Montage clients and prospects:
Purpose-Built Technology’s Contribution to the Solution
At Montage, we work with hundreds of clients, including enterprise organizations and staffing and RPO firms, to make inroads on these same issues with voice and video interviewing technology. While I can’t promise a solution to every TA challenge, what I can say with confidence is that these days, organizations are choosing to integrate purpose-built video interviewing as much for its strategic advantages as for its operational benefits. Strengthening an employer brand, elevating a candidate experience, engaging candidates at a deeper level – these are all real advantages gained by Montage clients every day. We deliver by combining the most mature technology on the market with a partnership approach that helps our clients use that technology to their fullest benefit.
Montage Vice President of Sales Chuck Loeher has extensive experience in helping large-enterprise organizations solve TA issues with SaaS technology. He’s focused on bringing enterprise-level impact through voice and video interviewing to potential Montage clients. Reach Chuck at email@example.com.
