Can Hiring Managers Really Hire Better Than Your Recruiting Team?

According to ERE’s annual State of Talent Acquisition Survey, hiring managers don’t think recruiters are that much more effective than job boards – a major difference from that of talent acquisition (TA) leaders, who think their teams are doing pretty darn well.

ERE 2016 Attendees You Can’t Miss at the Networking Party

This week, talent acquisition leaders from companies all over the US are headed to Las Vegas for ERE 2016. They’ll be exploring how they can better leverage data for their recruiting efforts, and how reporting and predictive analytics can help keep them ahead of the curve.

We’ll be at the show too – check out some of the awesome activities we’ll be hosting while were there, including an open bar, demo viewing opportunities, and great give-aways.

The attendee list at ERE 2016 is impressive, and we had the opportunity to talk to some of the attendees before the show to see what they hope to get out of their experience.

Below are five ERE 2016 attendees you don’t want to miss at the networking party during this event. They’re from some of the world’s largest brands, and will be a treasure trove of information regarding talent acquisition data.

Paul Tanguay, Global Director of Recruitment Strategies, UPS

Tanguay has been with UPS for 30 years (22 of those in talent acquisition), and has risen through the ranks with the opportunity to build a global recruiting department.

Ask him about: how UPS is using data and analytics to tackle the talent shortage.

He’s in charge of all global recruiting efforts, while his partner Matt Lavery (also attending the show) handles the professional and corporate level recruiting. They have an internal recruiting team dedicated to analytics, and are constantly looking for ways to enhance and improve their recruiting process.

The information they have is valuable, but Tanguay wants more. At the show, he’s looking forward to interact and connect with other talent acquisition executives in the same boat. Data analytics are very important to UPS, and he’s hoping to discover some of the newest trends and technologies in recruiting.

Carey Ribley, Recruiting Manager, DaVita

Carey fell into talent acquisition after college, and has worked on both the corporate and agency side of recruiting. Corporate is where her passion lies – she loves brining a new hire into a company that’s the right fit, and is passionate about what they do.

Ask her about: using Taleo to track data for recruiting nurses, one of the most challenging positions for DaVita to fill.

At DaVita, one of the largest kidney care companies in the US, they use a lot of data to influence the hiring process. They track things like applicant volume, conversions, the candidate process, time to fill, and the success of a position just to name a few.

Ribley is interested in finding a streamlined and effective ways to leverage data for talent acquisition. They use Taleo for data management – data is currently inputted manually by recruiters, meaning there is always room for human error.

“People analytics are a good tool,” Ribley said. “You have to use them, but they’re not always black and white.”

She’s excited to just be around thought leaders and what’s innovative right now in recruiting – hoping to talk to other leaders who have broken the typical talent acquisition routine.

Cost-per-hire is the one recruiting metric that we hear talent acquisition leaders say they use most commonly, but also the one that they get the least amount of value from.

Data and analytics are becoming a necessity for talent acquisition leaders. Knowing metrics like cost of hire, source of hire, and candidate quality is no longer a luxury that helps leadership get ahead. They’re now an integral part of each organization’s bottom line.
