Creating standardised, performance-based TA benchmarks

2 November 2023, London

8.30AM – 12PM

As a sector, Talent Acquisition, has no consistent language, terms, metrics or benchmarks. How do we know what good performance is? How do we demonstrate value and impact to a board? How can we make accurate decisions about our future approaches?

Talent teams are often seen as an admin function, and in order step away from this and elevate TA into a strategic business function, we need accurate performance benchmarks. So let’s make them!

Join this breakfast workshop, designed for strategic TA leads with people and budget responsibilities, where we’ll work together to create standardised definitions for the most crucial metrics. We’re encouraging a collaborative, open and honest approach to measuring TA performance to help make more informed decisions about our future strategies that can be shared with the wider community.

Join us on this crucial mission. Let’s elevate our industry together.

What we’ll be workshopping:

  • Why we need standardised metrics and accurate benchmarks to elevate TA
  • What benchmarks will provide the most impact to our roles as TA leaders
  • How can we engage the wider TA leader community to join us on this mission
  • …and much more!
