An Antidote to the Turnover Tsunami: Talent Acquisition Partnerships

The worst of the COVID-19 pandemic may be behind us, but its impact will be felt for a long time to come. The workplace was hit particularly hard, from layoffs to the shift to remote and hybrid work, and now there’s another storm brewing: the Turnover Tsunami. 

As people reevaluate their lives and careers, many have reached the conclusion that a job change is in order. In fact, studies show up to half of all employees plan to look for a new job this year. The pressure is on employers to ensure they’re not wiped out by a wave of departures that can short-circuit the recovery and growth of their businesses. 

TAPs bring a recruiting partner to the rescue

Times like these call for creative solutions as organizations seek to retain their top performers and attract new talent. Enter Alaant’s Talent Acquisition Partnerships, or TAPs.

Using Alaant’s TAP model, companies gain access to an expert from Alaant: a skilled and experienced recruiter that can serve as an extension of your existing HR team. It allows you to maintain recruiter flexibility as you pursue, hire and keep great talent; provides access to Alaant’s technology and tools, and its proven systems and processes, without having to make a long-term investment; and controls spending as we outline and work within a set budget.

The TAP model flexes to meet recruiting needs 

While TAPs are an outstanding solution for organizations that need to ramp hiring up and down quickly to meet pressing needs, they can also be used to support an ongoing recruiting strategy. With TAPs, companies can build an active pipeline of candidates that’s there when they need it – a huge advantage over starting from scratch when a position needs to be filled. And, professionals hired through TAPs become your employees, the same as if you’d found them on your own.

In addition, companies can use TAPs to strengthen their employer brand, creating an awareness of who your organization is, what your culture is like, and why candidates should consider you a preferred employer.

TAPs provide a safe port in the storm

Think of Alaant’s TAP model as a seawall on a shoreline, an apt analogy considering the approaching Turnover Tsunami. With access to an expert that can focus full-time on recruiting, TAPs enable a dynamic recruiting effort that can protect your company from the waves, prevent recruiting erosion, and proactively attract skilled and qualified candidates.

Alaant’s TAP program was tailor-made for today’s tumultuous times. Don’t wait for the boat to rock and fill with water. Contact us today and let’s get the conversation started! Contact us today and let’s get the conversation started!
