Kim R. Davis, President/CEO(DreamJobs)

The talent acquisition arena has changed dramatically in just the last 5 years. The recession was a painful lesson for many organizations. It is no longer a simple process of connecting a person to a job and a job to a person. Jobs and people are more visible than ever before, which is both a good and a bad thing. Many are overwhelmed with candidate information, available sourcing, multiple options and the ever changing landscape of recruitment technology. Organizations are demanding greater flexibility, less fixed expenses and better solutions to meet their talent recruitment needs. There has been a heighted demand for RPO services on an on demand basis based on real time hiring requirements.
We are consistently challenged to think outside of the box. What box??? Why not get rid of the box all together!

There is no one size fits all recruitment solution. There is no box. To compete in today’s world of finding great talent efficiently you have to think differently…react quickly and be ready to change the game. There is a new recruiter tool box.

To learn more, please attend this interactive session, Recruitment – Less is More. You will gain key insights into this new recruiter tool box, how the recession has changed RPO, and the best RPO option for your organization by joining a recruitment industry pioneer, Kim Davis, President/CEO/Founder DreamJobs as he discusses RPO in today’s market.

Go further than simply accepting and absorbing change, and instead take the control and lead the change for the commercial good of the organization. Whether managed in-house or outsourced, the talent acquisition function and its costs are continually scrutinized and assessed for potential efficiencies.

In the current economic climate, the pressure to reduce cost and improve efficientcy remain a key priority, however there is an increasing evidence that shareholders recognize competive advantage is intrinsically linked to Talent and that talanted employees simply don't stay as long and atracting them in the first place takes tenacity and consistent focus.
For example- To gain the total cost of recruitment you must factor in the cost / spend related to the below
• The existing Talent Acquisition Team
• Time spent by non-Talent Acquisition HR resources e.g. HR Business Partners, HR Admin, HR Systems
• The ATS deployed to support the recruitment process including licenses,
maintenance,upgrades and enhancements
• Maintenance of web content, as it relates to advertising vacancies and brand
•Creation, design, maintenance and bounty payments for candidate referral programs
• Agency fees
• Creation of recruitment marketing creative and collateral, either via external partners or in-house
• Recruitment marketing e.g. job-board licenses, press/onlineads, events, fairs, sponsorship
• Hiring Manager time i.e. creation of vacancy, approval process, screening applications, scheduling interviews, interviews, offer negotiation and on-boarding
• Discreet resources or teams with in the business that have been created to support the recruitment process i.e. recruitment champions, admin teams, Central Governance Teams
• Third-party assessment tools e.g. psychometric testing, behavioral analysis
• Back ground screening/reference checking and preparation of paper work for onboarding
• Any communication with unsuccessful applicants
