In this unprecedented and unpredictable year, one thing has remained true – all eyes will always be on talent acquisition. “Whether it has been managing the impact of the pandemic, providing transparency on diversity hiring, or leveraging data and analytics to support remote hiring and workforce changes, TA is leading the charge on what the workforce will look like moving forward, as well as how to get there,” explains Megan Buttita, Research Director for IDC's Emerging Trends in Talent Acquisition program.

And in order to continuously attract, hire and engage top talent, today’s talent teams have to be more agile than ever. That it’s critical to have the right systems in place to support your company’s hiring needs.

According to Greenhouse President and Co-founder Jon Stross, “Employers are seeing a spike in available talent in the current job market, which makes investing in a collaborative, long-term technology partner vital for a company’s ability to transform hiring into a competitive advantage. A high-performing people strategy isn't just a series of one-off tasks the recruiters execute, it’s everything from the candidate's first email interaction to your new hire’s first day.”

TA technology has the ability to transform the work experience, and the technology needed to power modern recruiting is crucial for individual and organizational success.

How the IDC MarketScape study can help

Selecting the right talent acquisition partner and having confidence in their ability to help you thrive as the global economy returns to growth and enters the next normal is key. At the same time, trying to evaluate which vendor offers the right mix of product reliability, innovation, customer satisfaction and service, and in-demand, cutting-edge features and functionality can be overwhelming.

Thankfully, the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Modern Talent Acquisition Suites for Large Enterprise 2020 Vendor Assessment (doc # US45438920, September 2020) has done the heavy lifting for you. The study provides an assessment of 13 modern TA suites, using a robust set of criteria, including customer satisfaction, functionality, offering, growth, innovation and total cost of ownership.

The report also represents IDC’s key observations of vendor strengths and weaknesses to help you assess the right solution for supporting your competitive recruiting strategy before, during and after implementation.

People are the foundation of any company’s success, which means that leaders and recruiting teams need to invest in new and creative ways to get measurably better at hiring.”

It’s clear that TA technology is not a one-size-fits-all solution: bespoke business goals need to be incorporated into the selection process in order to find a vendor that is capable of helping you hire for what’s next.
