In-demand talent are specialised, professional, and career orientated. Every company wants to hire them, but they aren’t on CV databases, they aren’t looking at job adverts, they’re ghosting LinkedIn, they don’t see job postings and they frequently ghost employers, abandoning conversations or applications midway through.
A third benefit of pipeline automation is the ability to measure and optimise recruiting investments. In today’s world, the downward pressure on talent acquisition budgets and headcount means organisations are striving for more efficiency and productivity throughout the entire recruitment process. They are looking at all the ways to condense and improve the process. It’s important to be able to measure talent acquisition activities and prove that they deliver.
As the market is becoming more and more competitive, now is a good time to be proactive. Failing to plan can be costly and waiting until you are in need of in-demand talent can mean paying more and lowering your standards. Pipeline automation saves recruiters time and money but did you know that it also gives you first access to the best talent?
In 2020 it became clear that creating talent pipelines was one of the top priorities for talent acquisition leaders. The reason it remains this way is because almost no organisations know how to create sustainable talent pipelines in order to hire ‘in-demand talent’, that is the people who are in higher demand than there is available supply.
