Building a Talent Acquisition Operating Model

There is a wide range of models for successful TA (Talent Acquisition) functions –and the needs of a specific organisation should always dictate the design of the right model for them –this is not a place for ‘cookie cutter’ solutions. Whether you are building a TA model from scratch for an early-stage company or transforming an existing function because business needs have shifted, this is a unique opportunity to reset and rethink what your company needs from their TA function, how best to meet those needs, and to consider what model is best to support your short and long term business goals.

In this guide, we will look at what some of the different models for TA functions are, examine the different use cases for those models, and also look at some of the tools and frameworks that can help your thinking about which model(s) might be best for your company.
