Talent Intelligence (TI) is still a fairly new concept, but has gradually gained a lot of traction. But how do global enterprises such as Amazon, EY and Google approach TI? On September 27 and 28, the first-ever global Talent Intelligence Conference will answer that question in Hoofddorp, Amsterdam. Headlining the event: Toby Culshaw (Amazon), Ian Addison-Smith (EY), and Kari Carney (Booking.com).
Talent Intelligence (TI) is the use of data and analytics to inform talent acquisition decisions. This can include everything from sourcing candidates to making hiring decisions. The concept allows talent acquisition leaders to make data-driven decisions about hiring, which can lead to improved hiring outcomes. By leveraging data and analytics, talent acquisition leaders can better understand their hiring process, identify areas for improvement, and make informed decisions about which candidates to hire.
At its very core, TI is about using data and analytics to improve a number of different phases and elements of the talent acquisition process. It can be used to identify the best channels for sourcing candidates, for example. Through a thorough analysis of past hires, TA leaders can identify which channels have been most successful in attracting qualified candidates. It then gives you an option to double-down on that channel.
‘Data is the key’
In recent years, Talent Intelligence has grown into one of the recruitment industry’s biggest trends, with some frontrunners leading the charge. One of them is Toby Culshaw, the author of author of the book Talent Intelligence: Use Business and People Data to Drive Organizational Performance and the Head of Talent Intelligence at Amazon.
“Across the last two decades in sourcing, recruitment and executive search, I have always held data to be key for any effective talent strategy.”
“Across the last two decades in sourcing, recruitment and executive search, I have always held data to be key for any effective talent strategy”, Culshaw says in an interview with ToTalent. “In the last decade we’ve seen an increasing maturity of the external labour market data vendors enabling a rapid expansion of internal talent intelligence capabilities with reduced barrier to entry.”
Catch Culshaw, as well as Alison Ettridge (CEO at Stratigens), Ton Sluiters (manager data at HeadFirst Group), Marlene de Koning (Director HR tech at PWC), Ben Zweig (CEO of Revelio Labs), Ian Addison-Smith (Executive Talent Attraction & Global Talent Intelligence Leader at EY), Intelligence Group director Geert-Jan Waasdorp, Sam Fletcher (Talent Acquisition and Executive Search leader at PayPal), Simone Dooley (Lead Talent Intelligence Partner at Booking.com) and Kari Carney (Global Talent Intelligence Leader at Booking.com) among many others.
