Adecco RPO and HCI Announce New Research on Acquiring Top Talent Through On-Demand Pipelines Findings Webcast Scheduled for Thursday, September 22, 2011, 1 pm ET
Washington, D.C. – September 2011 – The Human Capital Institute (HCI), the global association for strategic talent management, announced plans for release of new research underwritten by Adecco Staffing US, part of the world’s largest staffing firm. The research examines the talent pipeline practices of employers and offers insight into how the best continue to attract and select top talent.
A preview of the findings was presented on May 17th at the sold-out HCI Strategic Talent Acquisition conference. The findings will officially be unveiled on a webcast scheduled for Thursday, September 22 at 1:00 pm Eastern featuring Jennie Dede, Vice President of Recruitment, Adecco Staffing.
With the significant reduction in resources and staffing that were made during the recession, many organizations were not able to adopt, grow and maintain talent pipelines. With an improved hiring landscape particularly for high skilled positions, those companies with a robust talent pipeline strategy are poised to realize the benefit of utilizing this critical talent acquisition tool.
The results of this research clearly indicate that organizations that have a talent pipeline and a talent pipeline plan are realizing significant advantages in regards to meeting the talent acquisition and deployment needs of their organizations.
“It can be challenging for some companies to understand the importance of building a talent pipeline because there may not be a strong ROI correlation right away” says Jennie Dede, Vice President of Recruitment, Adecco Staffing. “Measuring the effectiveness of a talent pipeline takes time and resources and over the past couple of years both of these have been scarce. The ROI from putting the resources into this strategy would be decreased time to hire, decrease cost per hire, and the one that is rarely measured or accounted for – the opportunity costs that you didn’t lose because you were able to hire someone quickly.”
