About the course

Remember when positions were posted mainly through online job boards—or even the newspaper? When you had to know someone in an organization to learn the real story about working there? When companies had too many qualified candidates for critical positions? Well, things have changed...and so should the way you acquire the talent you need to be successful.

The rise of social and consumer technologies has changed candidate expectations. Candidates have the same high expectations that your clients and customers do—personalized experiences, relevant messaging, transparency, and honesty. Using the right marketing strategies driven by relevant data and analytics, you can attract the best candidates and make the best hires. HCI's goal-driven approach will help you connect hiring to the entire employee lifecycle, ensuring long-term organizational success.

HCI’s Strategic Talent Acquisition course features case studies, trends and the latest innovations in talent acquisition strategy. You will participate in a strategic business simulation during which you’ll assess your organization’s current situation, work with teams, and make decisions based on business challenges. You’ll also create a customized action plan that supports on-the-job implementation, along with tools to help.

  • Align Strategies – Define and implement talent acquisition strategies to meet business goals and support organizational culture.
  • Segment Roles – Determine organizational gaps in critical roles to more quickly impact the bottom line.
  • Brand to Attract – Define an employee value proposition that attracts highly qualified candidates.
  • Manage Pipeline – Develop a channel management strategy to fill gaps with the right people at the right time.
  • Assess and Select – Identify, develop, and measure candidate potential for success.
