Talent Acquisition in Australia: Trends and Challenges
Online attendees will receive the Zoom link to join the session 1-2 business days prior to the forum. A further reminder email with this link will be sent on the morning of the forum.

WA Central Metro Hybrid Network Forum

Innovations in talent acquisition (TA) practices are often driven by advances in technology and reactions to external events. For example, social distancing restrictions triggered by the COVID pandemic forced many organisations to rapidly switch from face-to-face activities such as interviews and assessment centres to remote and digital versions of these activities.

We undertook a research project to better understand current TA trends, focused especially on how organisations are making use of technology in their TA processes, and the extent to which COVID-19 disrupted these processes.

In this presentation, we will present the results from this study, share some of the latest research evidence around assessing for culture fit and improving the candidate experience, and facilitate an interactive discussion to identify some of the key challenges associated with implementing evidence-based practice in organisations.
