What is Total Talent Acquisition?

Total Talent

Our Total Talent Acquisition (TTA) delivery model is designed to complement our clients’ broader talent programmes.

We support the acquisition of talent throughout all forms of candidate engagement including permanent, contractor and temporary roles.

Managing all forms of recruitment control, consistency and visibility, stakeholder engagement and hiring experience, our TTA solutions support the globalisation of recruitment programmes today.

The TTA approach, has several distinct advantages which are already emerging over the established ‘fractured’ approach to recruitment:

  1. Wider candidate pools
    Having in place a system that enables the sharing of candidates between permanent and temporary talent pools will save recruiters time and provide them a wider range of potential candidates. It is currently often the case that temporary candidates are not considered for permanent roles, but the option to hire on a temp-to-perm basis is often useful and should not be ruled out.

  2. Economies of scale
    Cost benefits extend beyond the immediate positive impact of the reduced overall headcount needed to manage both temporary and permanent recruitment. A range of processes will also be streamlined: invoicing is an immediate case in point, as this can be centralised under a single individual or smaller team. A number of communication, liaison and reporting tasks will follow suit, particularly at a business-unit level where managers will have a single point of contact covering all their recruitment and talent needs.

  3. Contracts
    Simplified contract negotiations are another benefit that we have already observed in certain countries. In some regions, organisations can hold a single contract with the RPO provider, which in turn holds and manages all agency contracts.

  4. Shared technologies
    The ability for candidates to be shared across all permanent and temporary requirements provides hiring managers with a consistent and streamlined experience, no matter the type or location of the required hire. The ability to call on exactly the same technology and implement a single process frees them to
    spend more time focused on the core business.

  5. Hiring manager experience
    By following one process with one provider, hiring managers can efficiently start their search regardless of the type of role that needs to be filled. Having one point of contact is key to having a streamlined hiring process.

The concept of TTA makes a lot of sense – it ensures an organisation’s total workforce is being reported on. This includes the transfer of knowledge, transfer of skills, ensuring work is allocated to the rightplace and managing staff accordingly. By blending RPO and MSP solutions in a TTA model, organisations are redesigning an entire global talent acquisition strategy.

So, whether engaging the permanent, temporary, consultant or SOW workforce, Hiring Managers can benefitfrom a bigger talent pool, economies of scale, and efficiencies from the technologies that enable a TTA model.
