"A combination of the increasing skills shortage and the evolution of talent technology has made recruiters rethink the way they attract and hire. By removing the traditional hiring borders and integrating the full breadth of talent sources, companies are embracing a shift toward a total talent strategy."  

- Andrew Brown (Head of Partners & Alliances TA)

The world of outsourced recruitment continues to evolve, and outsourcing specialists are having to adapt rapidly to this changing landscape. Total talent acquisition is a term that has been around for a while, but how exactly is it enabling outsourcing providers to do better? 

With increasing skills shortages and the competition for talent growing, RPO and MSP organisations are shifting their thinking to this total talent model in order to engage and attract candidates. There are several key benefits;

  1) Wider talent pools. A total talent strategy rethinks the traditional hiring boundaries and enables companies to consider all types of hire to fill their roles. Bringing on the right candidate irrespective of their hiring preference.  

2) A more cohesive recruitment strategy. Adopting a total talent approach allows companies to align their permanent and contingent recruitment strategies, making their processes less fragmented and reducing costs.  

  So if you are a recruitment outsourcer looking to future proof your business, join the total talent movement today!
