Speed Read: Resourcing – How HR’s Core Competence is Evolving
Effective talent acquisition 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 (such as machine learning and artificial intelligence), 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 an effective recruitment process - having an actionable plan for acquiring the strategic capabilities needed, being clear about the factors that drive individual job performance, and having robust evidence-driven selection processes, remain constant.
This Speed Read - a summary of the full CRF report Resourcing – How HR’s Core Competence is Evolving - examines key trends in resourcing and demonstrates how HR can make a substantial strategic contribution by closely aligning the resourcing strategy to the business strategy. The Speed Read offers quick introductions to the following topics covered in the full report:
- today's resourcing context
- CRF Resourcing Model
- the role of job analysis in recruitment
- importance of the Employer Value Proposition, candidate experience, and employer brand
- the what and how of selection and assessment, including skills and characteristics to select for (intelligence, personality, motivation, etc.), the reliability and validity of various methods of assessment, and assessor capability
