Strategic Talent Acquisition – The Path to Getting a Seat at the Table

Presented by:

As the world continues to face economic uncertainty, talent acquisition teams are once again seeking stable footing amid company layoffs, hiring freezes, and shifting hiring priorities. 

The often mentioned “seat at the table” is not a metaphor. It’s a literal concept. 

Our group of panelists has been carefully selected to show how recruiting leaders and practitioners from larger organizations establish themselves as trusted partners, so that they can clearly illustrate their benefits to the business, and change their image from one of being a cost center, to one of being linked to revenue and their ability to hire the people who drive profits and market share.

Join Tory Fedel, Allyn Bailey, and Erica Stone Prado as they draw a map of the path to getting, and maintaining, a seat at the table. 

Key discussion points will include: 

  • Identifying business challenges and ways to provide support and solutions 
  • Reporting critical insights on internal and external talent pools 
  • Communicating TA’s impact across the organization
  • Maintaining strategic partnerships with company stakeholders
