Introduction & Objectives
The success of today’s business today depends on people. Not products or services, not strategy; but people. Talent acquisition is a critical organisational function concerned with recruitment, selection and retention of human resources. An organisation’s employee acquisition strategy is expected to ensure the right workforce working at the right place, right time. To ensure this, the organisation needs to be clear about what are the most critical skills and attributes needed in its applicant pool which must be consistent with the job requirements and the organisation’s approach to its market. Organisations should screen primarily on important attributes that differentiate the applicant from others in the pool.
Talent acquisition professionals face critical skill gaps and in today’s hyper-competitive and digitally-disruptive markets, the job becomes more challenging. The Executive Development Programme in Talent Acquisition is designed for working executives with little or no formal learning in talent acquisition, but whose professional responsibilities include hiring employees for their organisation.
