Key Challenges:

(from Roundtable discussions)

Over 30+ talent professionals, had the opportunity to discuss the top challenges teams are facing when it comes to TA:

1) Operating Models

What is the optimal operating model when hiring in the current climate? How to have better flexibility to scale up or down?


2) Employer Brand & EVP

What does your ideal candidate want? Rather than what you think they want? How to maintain brand within large businesses or align external contractors to present the brand?


3) Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

There is a huge need for DE&I strategy to improve diversity across the business (not just TA!) How can we track successful hires as well as unsuccessful?


4) Internal Demands

How do TA teams cope with demands when hiring volume increases? What workforce planning is in place? and how do we manage expectations?


If the above resonates with you and your challenges, we will be sharing more on how you can tackle these, with some of the best practice shared on the day!

“I found the event to be well organised, insightful and inspiring. I was able to capture some key takeaways, that I will implement into the day to day management of Vodafone’s Technology TA function.


Such a brilliant event.  It was great to be in a room with TA leaders all experiencing similar challenges- there was a great energy in the room and a real appetite to learn and share.   I am looking forward to the next one already.
