HANOVER, Md.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aerotek, a leading provider of recruiting and staffing services, today released a new report, Talent Management Done Right: Balancing High-Tech Tools with a Personal Touch. This report explores how to balance the drive for digitalization with the need to ensure workers are still at the core of talent acquisition and management.
“With rising quit rates and increasing technologies, digital transformation plays a crucial role in talent management,” noted Aerotek Executive Director of Marketing and Technology Blair Kennard. “This report can serve as a guideline for organizations that want to invest in the recruitment and retention of top talent. These new technologies can help create the opportunity for enhanced employee engagement, development and progress.”
The report outlines three critical pillars for organizations looking to navigate the ever-changing employment landscape:
- Talent Acquisition and Engagement: New technologies help bring candidates and recruiters together more quickly through tools like programmatic advertising and social search. Digitization has made it easy to gather data and resumes, but to make a successful placement, the employer needs to know the candidate at an individual level.
- Candidate Evaluation: Digital tools allow employers to more easily assess candidates without adding unnecessary barriers. However, to make the best hires for the long-term, an employer also needs to assess a candidate’s ability to adapt to change, take on expanded responsibilities and continue to develop as an asset for the employer.
- Employee Development and Retention: Employers are investing in ways to retain top talent. In addition to the digital options, though, there are low-tech ways that employers can help retain top talent, including mentorship and job shadowing.
