Talent acquisition has always been an important part of the hiring strategies and recruitment practices for any organization. But in the last few years, it became more critical than ever. After the economic downturn, there was a surge in unemployed professionals; there simply weren’t enough jobs for them to fill. Now, with the economy and job market alleviating, companies are competing against each other for the same talent – and often finding them a bit flat-footed. This has created vigorous changes across the talent acquisition and recruiting sectors – and has made it extra important for industry professionals to stay in the loop and on top of current trends in order to use them to their best advantage.
In a quest to do just that, StepUp HR is providing integrated HR solutions in executive search, recruitment, project-based hiring and contingent search.
