back in 2020, there was an acknowledgement that talent acquisition had changed forever but a sense that things would eventually stabilise into a new normal. two and half years later, it is clear that the only new normal is continual long-term disruption, change and uncertainty.


so what should ta leaders focus on to give their organisations the best chance of maintaining a competitive talent advantage in these challenging times?


my guest this week is hayli thornhill, head of recruiting at brighthire. hayli is an experienced ta leader with experience in both start-ups and large corporates. she has some insightful advice on dealing with disruption and preparing for an uncertain future.


in the interview, we discuss:


  • long term disruption and uncertainty


  • intelligent interview and evidence based hiring


  • what should ta leaders be focusing on


  • efficiency and quality


  • auditing tech stacks


  • modernising interviewer training


  • improving the hiring process


  • five non-negotiables to focus on


  • providing a brilliant candidate experience


  • looking to the future
