Global Talent Acquisition Day is celebrated every year on the first Wednesday of September. In 2022, the day falls on September 7th. The holiday was established by KRT Marketing in 2018. The agency specializes in finding and attracting employees with the necessary skills and qualifications. If it weren’t for people who find real talent, many companies would not be able to succeed.
It turns out that the profession of attracting talented employees has existed for thousands of years, so this direction cannot be called new. Since people have always sought to satisfy their needs, the process of hiring skilled craftsmen has also always existed. One of the earliest examples of hiring is from the Song Dynasty. To get a public position, applicants had to pass exams, and they were so difficult that only 1% of applicants coped with it. This selection process ensured that the best would work in the Chinese government.
- Julius Caesar was one of the first to establish a system of selection for military service, and he successfully recruited only the best soldiers. That is why the Roman army was famous all over the world.
- During the First World War, the recruitment of soldiers into the army intensified, and propaganda posters and leaflets were developed.
- More than 65% of business leaders say special strategic training programs are effective and help to find and successfully attract new talent.
- There is an acute shortage of talent in the world; by 2030 the shortage will be 85 million people.
- More than 90% of HR managers say training programs help close skills gaps.
How to take part
If you have agents in your area, host a thank-you lunch or dinner. Let these people feel their efforts are recognized. If you are an employer, look at the office through the eyes of new employees, and see whether you like going there every day. Refresh your workspace. Write a thank you post on social networks. The role of agents is underestimated, correct this gap.
