How Marketing Buyer Personas Can Help Recruiters Build Amazing Talent Pools

Posted by Sunil Bagai on Apr 13, 2017 11:00:00 AM

In today’s workforce, the evolving role of recruiters is becoming even more pivotal. Candidates aren’t attracted, sourced and recruited the same way they were a decade ago. The transactional tactics of matching skills, work experience and compensation to job descriptions no longer bear the same fruits. As the industry moves toward predictive analytics, digital ecosystems and on-demand talent pools, the best recruiters are confronted with the challenges of casting wide yet targeted nets.

Today’s business environment is defined by the fluidity of globalization. In a short span of time, technology has eroded many of the barriers -- both physical and social -- that have separated people through the ages. We’ve entered a new world of work where our tools, processes and even people function in “the cloud.” The rigid structures and staffing constraints of brick-and-mortar operations are hobbling hiring managers who must make real-time adjustments to the workforce in order to remain competitive. The MSPs that support them are feeling the same pain. It’s unlikely that this protracted war for talent will be won by the old “boots on the ground” mentality. Those days have passed.
