About the course

Become a true business influencer with HCI’s new approach to talent acquisition. With HCI’s certification course, you’ll learn to identify quality talent, increase diversity, and enable winning teams. Presented through a lens of customer centricity, you will gain an actionable framework and end-to-end strategy to win the war for great talent—and drive your business forward.

Why Should You Attend?

Rather than taking orders and recruiting on a position-by-position basis, talent acquisition professionals need a new set of competencies to meet the talent needs of the organization today and provide the agility it will need for tomorrow. Transparency, communication, and relationship-building with business leaders, hiring managers and internal and external candidates form the foundation of the strategist’s approach.

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

HCI’s newly redesigned Strategic Talent Acquisition (STA) course features updated case studies, new trends and the latest innovations in talent acquisition strategy. The rigorous curriculum bypasses the traditional lecture-based classroom. You will undergo a strategic business simulation during which you’ll assess your organization’s current situation, work with teams, and make decisions based on business challenges. Create a customized action plan that supports on-the-job implementation, complete with toolkits based on proven methodologies.

This two-day course moves beyond the transactional elements of making the right hire and provides you with deep expertise in the five pillars of Talent Acquisition strategy:

ALIGN: Define and implement Talent Acquisition strategies to meet business goals and support organizational culture.

SEGMENT: Determine organizational gaps in critical roles to more quickly impact the bottom line.

BRAND: Define an Employment Value Proposition that attracts highly qualified candidates.

PIPELINE: Develop a channel management strategy to fill gaps with the right people at the right time.

ASSESS & SELECT: Identify, develop, and measure candidate potential for success.
