HCI and Allegis Global Solutions Explore Successful Methods for Attracting New Breed of Talent

Latest Research Reveals Shift in Recruiting Landscape, Best Practices for Employer Branding

NEW YORK, NY, June 23, 2015–The Human Capital Institute (HCI), the global association for strategic talent management, today announced the availability of its latest research, “Innovative Talent Acquisition Strategies to Attract the TalentSumer.” Conducted in partnership with Allegis Global Solutions (AGS), a leader in global talent solutions, the research highlights the methods that today's organizations are using to attract a new type of job seeker – the “TalentSumer,” described as candidates who choose their employer similar to how consumers select products to buy.

With the introduction of sites like Glassdoor and the influence of LinkedIn, today's job seekers have access to more information about a company than ever before, such as details about the corporate culture, potential career paths and what the experience of working for the company is really like. Much like consumers use product reviews to guide their purchasing decisions, candidates can consult any number of company review sites to guide their career decisions. In the report, HCI and AGS describe the rise of these “TalentSumers” and investigate ways that organizations can take charge of their employer brands in order to clearly define their employee value proposition (EVP) and compete for top talent.
