Talent Sourcing in the Digital Era: Different Approaches to Diversified Needs

Talent Sourcing in the Digital Era: Different Approaches to Diversified Needs

This IDC Market Perspective presents three new approaches that are emerging to respond to the new talent sourcing requirements in the digital era: talent sourcing platforms, talent marketplaces, and crowdsourcing. Being competitive in the digital era requires companies to rethink talent sourcing strategies and models. Technological progress and the need for highly skilled digital workers are making traditional HR approaches obsolete, paving the way for new tech-enabled talent sourcing approaches. Strategically adapting to changing talent sourcing scenarios will determine which companies will be successful in the talent battle in the long run. "In the next five years, 30% of European enterprises will move from traditional talent sourcing strategies and models toward virtual, borderless, and task-oriented approaches, integrating online communities and platforms to acquire skills and temporary staff."
