Gone are the days when HR managers recruited random job-seekers after sifting through classifieds and other registered job portals. In this era of competition, finding the right talent for a suitable requirement is the norm. Without right talent, the given tasks and assignments are far from being achieved. Thus, seeking the right talent has become an ethical practice of most HR managers. However, the challenge lies in finding the right talent. Many recruiters terribly fail at finding the right talent for a requirement. This is because the art of locating suitable candidates or talent mapping is a skill developed only by experienced talent researchers.
Talent mapping is no ordinary skill. It requires a great deal of patience and endurance because talent researchers take into consideration every bit of information before presenting the full picture. Talent researchers have an eye for detail and are able to map talent through various tools and strategies. The mastery of talent mapping lies in how well a researcher is able to follow industry trends, keep up with dynamism and novel career opportunities.
Talent Mapping Techniques
Since talent mapping is a professional skill, it is only practiced by specialists or hiring agents as they are solely devoted to the art of recruitment and human resources. Therefore, MNCs and start-ups are unable to locate perfect talent unless they have a special talent mapping and research cell, which is nothing but an additional cost to company.
Talent mapping helps companies in various ways. Initially MNCs and start-ups refrain from investing in such secondary recruitment activities due to its expensive modules and features. However, talent managers must realise that investing in such activities can help organisations increase their revenue to its max.
Mapping of talent is a great determiner of niche hiring. For instance, if a company is into hiring DevOps engineers, talent mapping can help them find potential sources through which they can recruit experts.
Passive hiring is a difficult task which is only used to hire leaders and other experts. Recruiters find it hard to source such candidates. Here is where talent mapping steps in. Since, mapping of talent involves research and thorough analysis of job roles, it becomes easy to locate such candidates. Besides the strategies involved can also help hiring managers to recruit the best talent.
