Transforming Talent Acquisition for Focus and Scale

Agenda

BlackRock’s Talent Acquisition team had an ambitious aspiration for the role they could play in fueling the firm’s growth.  But the reality of recruiters’ day-to-day work was a rush to screen in-bound applicants quickly, respond to urgent needs from dozens of hiring managers, and wade through reports from multiple disconnected systems. 

To avoid being overwhelmed by these challenges, BlackRock overhauled their technology, in-sourced key TA functions, reorganized their existing team, and established a new way of working with hiring managers and business leaders that has increased their ability to be strategic partners and achieve an efficient, engaging candidate experience.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How BlackRock identified the gaps and opportunities in their hiring manager and candidate experience
  • What changes were made to technology, operating model, and process/support functions
  • How BlackRock implemented the changes while continuing to make thousands of hires each year
