TECH BUYER Mar 2020 - IDC Perspective - Doc # US46115020
The Data-Driven Talent Acquisition Function
By: Megan Buttita, MLIS
This IDC Perspective looks at one area within talent acquisition (TA) — data and analytics — that has the power to elevate TA to a strategic function within an organization, many times with existing technology or point solutions that can be integrated with existing HCM systems with relative ease. The disconnect between intention to spend on data and analytics and importance points to confusion around how and where to start on this transformation.
"Successful transformation of TA organizations into a data-driven function will require a commitment to changing people, process, and technology, all supported by change management," says Megan Buttita, research director of Emerging Trends in Talent Acquisition for IDC. "Evaluating where TA teams are at and setting realistic goals based on a long-term strategy will be necessary to make this transition a reality."
