Recruiting Unbound: Becoming an Agile Resourcing Function

In a recent interview series, IHR’s Natasha Preocanin sat down, virtually, with Duncan Miller, Cornerstone to discuss some of the main challenges talent acquisition teams are facing today and how the recent pandemic has forced new ways of thinking and accelerated a new way of recruiting.  Whilst the pandemic has exposed many weaknesses in recruiting, it has also given us the opportunity to recognise unpreparedness and fix the issues before they become an even bigger problem further down the line. But to do that we must be unbound. Being unbound is being released from the constraints of traditional thinking and embracing each and every change that comes our way.

The focus topic for this interview was to look at agility, but what does it really mean within the context of recruiting? Cornerstone, the leading recruiting software, has been fortunate enough to be at the forefront of seeing its clients, and other organisations, take the lead on flipping processes that in a virtual world weren’t fit for purpose. The pandemic has made every organisation shift their entire workforce to a new way of working and communicating, and ultimately digital has been the enabler, but it’s not just about the technology. It’s a change in the way we hire, and focus on the short-term needs. It’s a change in mindset and approach.
