What is “talent acquisition”? 

Talent acquisition refers to the entire process of searching for, identifying, attracting, and hiring talent for an organization. Rather than pertaining to people as personnel or workers, talent acquisition recognizes that people possess talent that can contribute to an organization. It is a process that encompasses various steps in forecasting what is needed, planning the hiring process, announcing job opportunities, and an array of strategies in sourcing, active, and passive recruitment. 

Talent acquisition is under the scope of human resources. Instead of merging with general HR, many companies have a separate talent acquisition in place. If you are a talent acquisition specialist, your primary focus is to seek, engage, and bring the best individuals into your company. 

Rather than satisfying short-term goals in just filling a vacancy, talent acquisition focuses on long-term strategies. It is a continuous process of studying the workforce, the organization’s current needs, potential needs, future needs, and incorporating those findings in finding the best talent.
