HR Happy Hour 343 - Taking on Today's Talent Acquisition Challenges
Host: Steve Boese
Guest: Susan Vitale, CMO, iCIMS
Sponsored by Virgin Pulse - www.virginpulse.com
This week on the HR Happy Hour Show, Steve recorded live from the iCIMS Influence event in the iconic Bell Works building in New Jersey, the new home for the talent acquisition technology provider iCIMS to talk with iCIMS Chief Marketing Officer Susan Vitale about how organizations are tackling today's talent acquisition challenges.
On the day this show was recorded, the BLS released their monthly JOLTS report which showed that open jobs in the USA hit 7.1 million, an all-time high for this data series. Simply put, more organizations have more job opening than ever before in the US. iCIMS sits at the center of this challenge, helping their customers to find, attract, engage, recruit, and onboard talent in this incredibly tight labor market.
Susan shared how some of iCIMS customers are attacking their unique talent acquisition challenges with a combination of strategy, process improvement, and innovative applications of new technologies. From global process improvement and efficiencies at a large company like Hertz, to high-touch, high impact recruiting of highly sought after researchers at St Jude's Children's Research Hospital, to engaging with thousands of front-line candidates at scale using texting as a primary communication medium at Advantage Solutions - every company's recruiting challenge is unique and iCIMS is helping thousands of companies in these efforts.
Thanks to Susan and iCIMS for joining us and for hosting the HR Happy Hour Show.
