Executive Summary: Resourcing – How HR’s Core Competence is Evolving

Finding, developing and retaining the talent needed to execute strategy is a key business priority, and is an area where HR can make a substantial strategic contribution. The world of resourcing is rapidly evolving, with technology innovation, social media and shifting candidate expectations leading to new methods for attracting and assessing candidates. Despite rapid change in this field, the factors that underpin effective resourcing - having an actionable plan for acquiring the strategic capabilities needed, being clear about the factors that drive individual performance, and having robust evidence-driven selection processes, remain constant.

This CRF report provides examples and practical recommendations for improving your resourcing strategy and tactics. The report focuses on three core elements of the resourcing process:

  • job analysis
  • employer branding
  • assessment and selection.

Access this CRF report to learn about key developments in resourcing and how to improve the effectiveness of your resourcing processes, and the connection between recruitment and business strategy. Those interested in learning more about the employer brand can access our supplementary report - The Evolution of the Employer Brand.

This is an executive summary of the report, where you can read the main findings and recommendations. A full copy of the report is available to CRF members only.
