The majority of employers today perform background investigations of some type, according to the National Association of Professional Background Screeners (NAPBS).
All background checks aren’t created equal, however. Whether you’re seeking to improve existing talent acquisition capabilities or are among the employers introducing a new background search policy, it’s vital to identify the right partner for background checks
With so many options on the market, the quest for the best-fit background screening provider can seem overwhelming at first. To help cut through the clutter, we’ve compiled five basic questions, which home in on the central issues related to background checks and can help any organization identify the companies most capable of meeting their needs.
In the story of the CRE tenant experience, there are clearly some areas of alignment between
building management teams and the tenants they serve. Both understand the importance
of amenities, security, and communication. Both know that a building represents more than
physical space – it is how companies acquire new talent and keep employees happy.
However, as this research reveals, there are still major disconnects between these two parties.
Talent is an increasingly critical differentiator of corporate performance and poses one of the most significant barriers to growth. CEB research finds that boards at top-performing companies are twice as likely to have a deep understanding of talent issues as boards at lower-performing competitors. However, most boards lack sufficient understanding of key talent issues facing the companies they oversee, particularly because the data and analysis they receive provide limited insight. This whitepaper outlines the critical talent conversations every board should have and shows how industry leaders are broadening their understanding of talent issues and assurance about critical talent risks by expanding the perimeter of talent issues they monitor beyond executive leadership and reshaping conversations on executive performance evaluation and succession.
Talent management has become one of the most pressing topics within HR organizations today - and it is no wonder, given the current economic environment and business imperatives.
In this research bulletin, we will outline the approach HR organizations must take to identify, cost-justify, develop and implement the highest impact talent management strategy.
In the 2014 Workforce Talent and Workforce Management Outlook survey, Human Capital Media Advisory Group, the research arm of Workforce magazine, in partnership with Cornerstone OnDemand set out to discover where HR leaders are seeing their greatest successes and feeling the greatest pain. Additionally, we explored how HR leaders are setting priorities for the coming years. While there are surveys that address how the needs of HR vary, many focus on the difference between small and large organizations with the assumption that midsized organizations are similar enough to large organizations not to require extra focus. To get a different perspective, we looked specifically at how the HR function in midsized organizations compares to their much larger counterparts. Are they as similar as is popularly believed?

The war for talent is a term that was coined by Steven Hankin of McKinsey & Company in 1997 to refer to an increasingly competitive landscape for recruiting and retaining talent. Today, this “war” has escalated
to new heights, commanding the attention of CEOs across all industries.
According to research recently published by McKinsey, more than three-quarters of Fortune 500 CEOs do not believe their companies are effective at attracting highly talented people. Of those CEOs who do consider their companies successful at attracting top talent, only 7% believe they are effective in retaining them.
In today’s hyperconnected labor market, recruitment and retention are not separate problems; they are two sides of the same coin. Companies that have adopted integrated strategies for recruitment and retention have a significant competitive advantage.

While there are many approaches to attracting diverse candidates, sourcing and pipeline management is one of the most critical. As organizations attempt to increase their sourcing efficiency by narrowing their focus on high-yield sources, they may inadvertently impact their ability to attract or find diverse candidates.
Stacia Sherman Garr, VP and Talent Management Research Leader at Bersin by Deloitte, Deloitte Consulting LLP, will share five critical sourcing practices organizations can use to attempt to address this situation, expand their talent pools, and enhance their capability to identify diverse talent. We'll also share Schneider Electric's story of how they've used better sourcing and pipeline management to meaningfully impact their diversity hiring numbers.

Fostering a positive relationship with a hiring manager is a journey that involves both patience and an honest assessment of the current state of the relationship. Bersin by Deloitte research found the most influential predictor of TA performance outcomes is a strong relationship between the recruiter and the hiring manager. In fact, this relationship is four times more influential than other TA performance drivers.¹
Many TA leaders also believe their recruiters are perceived with high regard by hiring managers and company leadership. However, a study by ERE Media found that recruiters and hiring managers have different views of recruiter performance—with recruiters giving themselves an average performance grade of B and hiring managers giving recruiters an average grade of C-plus.²

The talent acquisition market has changed dramatically. It is no longer just about placing ads on different sites and waiting for the resumes to roll in. Rather, it’s ferreting out those passive candidates and convincing them that your company is where they can shine and grow in their profession. Today’s recruiters must proactively search, find, and nurture candidates in this tough job market, and they need good tools to do this. In Forrester’s 45 criteria evaluation of talent acquisition vendors, we identified the 12 most significant software providers — ADP, Cornerstone OnDemand, Findly, IBM Kenexa, iCIMS, Jobvite, Lumesse, Oracle, PageUp People, PeopleFluent, SuccessFactors, and Technomedia — in the talent acquisition category that provide both applicant tracking system (ATS) and various levels of talent relationship management (TRM) functionality in their recruiting offering. This report details our findings about how well each vendor fulfills our criteria and where they stand in r
In today’s competitive work environment, attracting and retaining top talent is paramount and expensive.
Companies recruit high performing employees with deep experience, invest in training, and reward outcomes.
Yet while talent and experience are critical, new evidence suggests those attributes may not be enough.
It’s not simply how well a person can perform in a typical situation, but how quickly they can return to high
performance after an inevitable setback.
Resilience is the ability to become strong, healthy or successful again after something bad happens. It
includes (learnable) cognitive and emotional skills that reduce the degree and duration of episodes of
discouragement, reluctance or defeat that often follow negative events. A resilient worker will quickly put the
event in perspective and search for alternative solutions while their less-resilient colleagues experience a
letdown or assign blame.

Looking to attract, engage, and retain great talent? Groundbreaking research shows what to focus on and where to begin. We call them talent magnets because they are the precise attributes that make your organization attractive to employees. They are: Purpose, Leadership, Opportunity, Success, Appreciation, and Wellbeing. If you improve your culture in all six areas, even marginally, you will see positive business results. The magnets are also interrelated. Improve just one, and you’ll get a boost in all the others.

Enterprises in Asia Pacific now run multiple clouds with sizeable workloads, and cloud technologies have become increasingly challenging to manage. While IT organizations seek specialized expertise to keep pace with the constant change and complexity, what they are met with instead, is a global shortage of skilled cloud experts. As the costs in recruiting and training talent rises, the situation escalates into a hurdle to implementing cloud strategies.
To better understand the cost of cloud expertise, Rackspace teamed up with the London School of Economics (LSE) and independent research house Vanson Bourne, to research on the severity of the problem. This e-book covers the findings to provide thought-provoking insights into why you should drive your cloud journey along the managed cloud provider route, if you were to be caught in a no-win HR loop.
