To succeed in the new work environment, companies must build strategic recruiters capable of managing complex talent pipelines and advising the business on talent needs and labor market conditions.
Yet, fewer than 1 in 5 recruiters today are proficient as "Talent Advisors".
To transform from order taker to strategic recruiter, and move from providing operational hiring support to strategic recruiting guidance, companies must:
- Identify what strategic recruiters do differently,
- Assess and select recruiters who demonstrate those qualities, and
- Embed Talent Advisor capabilities into recruiter expectations and development programs.
We have developed a roadmap for building Talent Advisor skills based on robust quantitative research into what differentiates top recruiters, as well as best practices from leading companies.
