Talent Acquisition & Recruitment in 2021/22 (Online)

21. September 2021
kl. 09.00 - 11.30  CET

Talent Acquisition and Recruitment have seen significant changes in recent years due to the impact the pandemic has had on job markets around the world. Many of these changes are likely to stick around for a while, enabling improvements and development of key processes within talent attraction, selection, and assessment. Therefore, it’s more important than ever to stay on top of new trends and industry-changes as a recruiter.

Talent Acquisition - NOCA

At this NOCA-meeting we look at how our members can use key talent sourcing technologies e.g., and how AI and ATS are changing the recruitment processes. We consider the importance of auditing the mandate- and framing the role of Talent Acquisition within the organization. This is needed to create a new mindset that allows more proactive and efficient practices in our organizations. Lastly, we raise the question:

What new technologies and processes are to impact our sourcing practices in the years to come?

To answer these questions, we are joined by experienced speakers within the field of TA and technologies. Our speakers represent Topdanmark and Nets Group, and potentially additional cases.

Michael Falkner, Head of Talent Attraction at Nets Group, will introduce us to the new sourcing technologies that Nets recently implemented. He will focus on how Nets work with Talent Communities. Michael will share his thoughts about how he believes that AI- and CRM/ATS-technology will impact the future TA-processes.

Martin Bøgelund Arvidsen, Employer branding & Talent Acquisition Lead at Topdanmark, will set the scene for Talent Acquisition’s strategic role. He will share his experiences and reflections from Topdanmark, and will dive into the critical questions of:

  • How to ensure alignment between TA activities and the business strategy?
  • How does TA become a management focus?
  • What is TA’s core task and which processes, tasks, and stakeholders are crucial to TA’s success?
