Recruitment Transformation

Fuelled by the growth of social media and the relentless development of new technologies, the in-house recruitment sector has seen unprecedented change. The role of the modern in-house recruiter has changed almost beyond recognition.

Companies that have seized the opportunity and replaced traditional, administrative recruitment functions with specialist, strategic resourcing functions are widening the talent gap, and many companies have been left behind.

We now recognise the process of change from administrative to strategic resourcing as ‘Recruitment Transformation’. The good news is that the journey has been mapped.

InSource Talent has been created to help companies navigate that journey. We are your partners for Recruitment Transformation. We will provide an impartial assessment of your current recruitment activities, and advise on the development of your own in-house recruitment transformation strategy.
