Event overview

In this difficult hiring environment, the function of TA continues to evolve. And while hiring the best external candidates will always be the primary focus, it’s becoming increasingly important for TA leaders to think about the role more holistically and strategically.

Agility is essential in this current climate. By expanding their scope of influence beyond transactional recruiting, TA leaders have an opportunity to become changemakers within their companies. But how do you determine the right TA model for your organization? In what ways can TA leaders bring more innovative thinking to their approach? And how do you create the business case to ask for what you need to deliver on your company’s hiring goals?

In this event, we bring together a host of global TA leaders and industry experts, to discuss how the role of TA leadership can be elevated and optimized to drive more strategic success.

It is becoming increasingly difficult to find the right talent. Candidates have more options than ever before – but they also have more requirements. TA needs to partner with the rest of the business if it wants to stand the greatest possible chance of hiring (and retaining) the best people.

TA leadership must expand its sphere of influence to encompass other avenues that directly impact talent, like internal mobility, onboarding, compensation, employer branding, DEI, and candidate experience. By being more holistic and strategic, and focusing on operational excellence and delivery but also innovation, TA has the opportunity to elevate its role within the organization - ensuring a better chance for alignment, retention, and success.

Who is this event for?

Aimed at TA and Recruiting leaders, SocialTalent is bringing together industry experts from the world of recruiting and talent, as well as the Heads of TA from some of the world’s best known organizations, to discuss how the role of TA leadership can (and should) evolve to position organizations for the best possible success in the future.

What will I learn?

Our primary goal is to give our audience practical and insightful advice on how TA leaders can expand their influence and become more strategic, as well as drive more innovation within TA, in order to generate better hiring results.

Through a series of industry expert panels and discussions with senior leaders in TA and Recruiting, we’ll also explore how to create the foundation for process excellence, the various TA operating models, their pros and cons, as well as how to create the business case to secure the funding needed to drive hiring and business success.

Panel 1: Laying the groundwork for process excellence in TA

The future of TA is more holistic and not just focused on hiring. This panel will examine how other areas, like onboarding, compensation, and how to make a successful offer, can optimize the end-to-end process for both candidates and TA leaders.

Fireside chat discussion: Driving more innovation within TA

Talent acquisition can learn a lot from the software world – mainly how innovation and iteration can take TA to the next level. In this fireside chat with Yasar Ahmad, the Global VP of Talent at HelloFresh, we delve into the future of TA and how to build innovation into your everyday process.

Panel 2: How to build a business case for a more results-focused TA strategy

If compensation, onboarding, and company culture aren’t aligned with the vision you are selling a candidate, the best process in the world won’t allow you to hire and retain the best people. This panel will walk you through how to think beyond delivery, giving TA leaders tactical advice on how to move the needle and align talent strategy business-wide.
