Put the Moët on ice, it’s National Talent Acquisition Day!
OK, so it’s unlikely anyone’s handed you a bottle of the good stuff in celebration of this under-recognised day, but that doesn’t mean we just ignore it.
Talent acquisition is an ever evolving business, and it’s all recruiters and HR professionals can do to stay ahead of the curve.
Yeah, you know what I’m talking about. So take ten, brew yourself a hot one, put your feet up, and let’s reflect on the importance of acquiring and nurturing top-notch talent. Hint – there’s a top tip in here about how you can elevate your talent acquisition strategy and build a workforce that drives your organisation's success. Oh yes, we don’t just write these for the clicks, you know.
Embrace the data
One of the key trends in talent acquisition is the increased reliance on data-driven decision making. Data analytics can help recruiters identify top candidates more efficiently, predict future hiring needs, and assess employee retention rates. Data can help make smarter recruitment choices and ensure a seamless talent acquisition process.
And here’s your top tip. If you can take this data and use it alongside the Character Quality data you get from Entelechy’s Discover solution, you’ll be able to ensure candidates are a good fit both for the skills required for their position, and also for your organisational culture.

Implement inclusive hiring practices
Diversity and inclusion are not just buzzwords; they are essential elements of successful talent acquisition. Organisations that embrace diversity benefit from a broader range of perspectives, increased innovation, and improved employee morale.
At Entelechy, we believe that in order to properly deliver on diversity and inclusion, we must celebrate differences and see it as common sense that every human being is unique. As such, if you want these human beings to do their best for you, you need to help them develop the Character that would make them the stand-out choice.
Invest in continuous learning
New strategies and technologies emerge regularly in talent acquisition. National Talent Acquisition Day, while perhaps not as big a celebration as an August bank holiday, serves as a reminder to invest in continuous learning for your HR team; this fosters a culture of growth and development. When employees see that their organisation values their learning, they are more likely to stay engaged and motivated, resulting in higher productivity and job satisfaction.
Blow open that HR silo
Effective talent acquisition extends beyond the HR department
