← back to Insights page

The current societal moment has put a spotlight on the importance of globalizing your talent pool to ensure your company is still attracting top quality candidates. As the first pillar of Hiring Success, Talent Attraction & Engagement is a pivotal building block for any organization attempting to optimize its talent acquisition function.

In Jonathan Dunlea & Selina Keller’s recent piece for PricewaterhouseCoopers Australia (PwC AU), they concur with the premier pillar of Hiring Success, and suggest that a global recruiting strategy, focused on broadening your talent attraction and engagement efforts, can jumpstart a company’s recovery from the current economic slowdown. In specific, they offer three suggestions on how to utilize a global mobility strategy to help recruit top talent that can fuel a business turnaround:

  • Where are your people?
    • Use global candidate sourcing to find new areas of talent
  • Flexibility is here to stay – get ready
    • As suggested by the Talent Scarcity-Impact Framework, adopt new talent attraction models to segment out candidates by purpose and potential to ensure your talent pool can ebb and flow with ever-changing business demands
  • Mobility professionals get strategic
    • Once more adhering to the Talent Scarcity-Impact Framework, be prepared to shift recruiting budget based upon your hiring needs, such as focusing on ‘Core’ candidates for high-volume recruiting, while attracting ‘Unicorn’ candidates for senior leadership positions
