BROOKFIELD, Wis., Sept. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Pinstripe, Inc. and Ochre House, partners and international leaders in recruitment process outsourcing (RPO), together announce the findings of their Global Think Tank. Hosted by client-partner VWR, the event brought together HR talent acquisition leaders from such well-known companies as Rogers Communications, QVC, Siemens Healthcare, Johnson and Johnson, and Moog.
In summary, the dynamic group discussion concluded that today's HR leaders must leverage global standards and tools to meet the needs of local markets. They must move away from a transactional mentality and open themselves to implementing plans that account for longer-term hiring requirements and closely align to business strategies.
"Many of the topics explored during our discussion uncovered trends that we are seeing across our clients and around the world," explained Courtney Cook, senior vice president of global business practices for Pinstripe. "More and more global organizations are seeking specialized partner organizations to bridge the gap between overarching HR strategies and nuanced local execution."
Facilitated by talent management thought leaders from both sides of the Atlantic, the discussion explored the latest strategic thinking, challenges and opportunities related to global talent acquisition today and in the future. An opportunity for like-minded global heads of recruitment to share best practices and innovation, this gathering consisted of roundtable discussions about the future state of global talent acquisition and how to leverage global talent management solutions as part of organizational talent acquisition and staffing strategies.
Primary findings from the discussion included:
- Global and multinational firms want the best of both worlds – the ability to have a global strategy, but local expertise with service delivery in each unique market;
- Global capability must be based on consistent foundations and through centralized leadership – brand, technology, metrics, participant experience – but implemented, managed and executed locally;
- Business leaders with international experience are a must, irrespective of their physical location -the barrier to truly global organizations and global HR functions is finding people who have an international mindset and global experiences; and
- Organizations must cultivate and promote an employer brand that resonates globally; one that is authenticated throughout the entire employee experience.
Continuing the conversation for a broader audience, Ochre House and Pinstripe's global experts will come together for a joint webinar on Thursday, October 20 at 4 p.m. GMT (10 a.m. CT) to present the findings in more detail and answer attendees' questions about global talent acquisition and management.
