Panel - Sue Howse, Simon Townsend & Keryn Paviour-Smith, Includes a 5 min Q&A session:

Sue will be facilitating a panel discussion with two leading experts, one from an RPO, workforce analytics and future of talent perspective and the second panellist who has had over 20 years in talent acquisition (RPO and internal) globally, now Head of TA for NewsCorp.

Essentially recruitment is a supply and demand equation.

Company’s demands varying depending upon their short, medium & long term talent needs; geographic footprint and uniqueness of skills they need to attract to their organisation.

Overlay this with the ever-increasing access to data and information (quickly and with ease) and a clients level of sophistication is like never before.

Clients are more informed and often can independently access the information Recruitment Agencies have traditionally provided as a service or value-add. How do you stay relevant to your clients in the current and future landscape? We explore how the needs of hiring managers, TA/HR and procurement differ when viewing how they bring talent into an organisation.

Candidates are the supply side of the equation and candidate behaviours are changing. The way workers want to, and often choose to work is based upon their individual needs. They will make choices about where they work and what Co’s they work with on vastly differing needs. Likewise, candidates also have access to vast data and information relating to organisations, brands, their culture, benefits and all at their finger-tips.

This segment, Recruitment through a Different Lense takes an outside-in look at recruitment. We explore the view of Talent Acquisition with Keryn and she will help us understand the priorities she, her team, her business and experiences tells us about Company needs. Simon will provide insights to candidate behaviours that are consistently occurring and emerging candidate behaviours to understand in order to get ahead of the curve.
