Building a Resourcing Function

With many Resourcing leaders time poor and residing over delivery teams with little or no access to sector expertise, now is the time to revisit those Resourcing strategies to ensure the blend of tech, outsourcing and process are being deployed in equal measures.

We’re bringing in 10 of our trusted partners to showcase how they’ve solved some of the most commonly faced challenges in this space. We will explore how to shape future talent pipelines while flexing and scaling a Resourcing function.

Some of the top line points we will cover include:

  • Why has it become increasingly more important for employers to be in control of their own talent pools and talent pipelines?

  • What is the best way to manage agencies?

  • Automating as much of your process as you can add real benefits from attraction through to reference checks and onboarding. What do you need to consider when deciding what to use? 

  • How do you resource for peaks or volume hiring?

  • RPO - Yes or No?

  • Advertising, brand, referrals, candidate engagement, communication and much more

And that’s just in the AM!

After an amazing lunch, we’ll be treated to an afternoon of presentations and discussions from our event partner vendor as well as a Head of Recruitment. 

This will lead to a roundtable discussion focusing on this question what is the potential of a direct resourcing model and what is the right talent model and fit for purpose hiring strategies?
