Talent Pipelining/Sourcing

I know this space is usually reserved for conversations about Social Media but Talent Pipelining/Sourcing is becoming a pretty big topic and we (Granite Consulting) are having more and more conversations with organizations about this trend,…..

Many organizations are now looking towards a strategic talent pipelining solution as a way to better support their ongoing recruitment needs, particularly for repetitive or hard to fill roles.  A talent pipelining solution focuses on the front end of the recruitment chain, first identifying then proactively engaging and nurturing relationships with top market talent.

 When comparing the pros and cons of a standard Contingent Agency or a Retained Search Firm versus Granite’s Talent Pipelining solution, you should ask the following questions. Who owns the candidates and the market research at the end of the engagement? How does the agency or search firm engage with the candidates on my organization’s behalf?

 Granite’s Talent Pipelining solution adds value in these areas over typical agency recruitment providers:

1.      Market/Candidate Research – A thorough report including market data and insight, candidate feedback, and competitor intelligence is provided to you

2.      Candidate Ownership – You “own” all candidates sourced.  You effectively own a new talent community that is your to engage and nurture for present and future recruitment needs

3.      Reporting – Regular itemized activity reporting is provided to help you keep your key stakeholders informed.

 Granite Consulting is a recruitment partner committed to your success.
