We're Only Human 9 - Sourcing, Recruiting, and Organizational Priorities
Host: Ben Eubanks
Guest: Madeline Laurano, Co-Founder, Aptitude Research Partners
Sourcing isn't a new activity in the talent acquisition world. There have always been hard to fill jobs, but we're seeing more of this kind of issue than ever before. In fact, a recent CareerBuilder study puts the cost of open positions at nearly $800,000 annually, tallying up costs that include lost productivity, low employee morale, and higher turnover due to burnout. In addition, one Lighthouse Research study of talent acquisition priorities pegs sourcing as the number one area that business leaders plan to focus on in the coming year.
In this episode of We're Only Human, host Ben Eubanks is joined by Madeline Laurano, co-founder of Aptitude Research and co-host of Research on the Rocks, another HR Happy Hour network show. She and Ben discuss some of the key aspects of sourcing, such as employment branding, recruitment marketing, and technology's role in the process.
In addition, they examine the impact of AI, machines, and algorithms on the sourcing world, breaking down some of the hype and illuminating an amazing competition that exemplifies that to get the best results, we need humans and machines working together.
