About the TalentSum 2018 Talent Acquisition Landscape Study

At TalentSum, our research and findings are a large and vital component of the work we do. In our 2018 Talent Acquisition Landscape Study, we’re uncovering what it takes for companies to become great at talent acquisition. To obtain this information, TalentSum is conducting multiple surveys of C-level executives, business unit leaders and talent acquisition leaders and individual participants. We select our target populations for this research based on the following criteria:

  • Employer participants must have revenues above $1 million in revenue per year.
  • Employer participants must be willing and able to share accurate data with our firm.
  • Individual participants being surveyed must be from an independent employer with revenues above $1 million in revenue per year.

What you get for participating: All participating employers will receive pre-release reports of our findings – including best practice insights, ranked lists of industry tools, and how-to suggestions – to help your company become, or remain, a top employer organization. You’ll also receive an invitation to join a webinar where TalentSum will review the results and implications for companies like yours.

Full Study: Nov 7, 2017 through December 31, 2018; Survey Method: Mixed Mode; Participating employers (N=600) and Individuals (N=1200)

Current Attraction Survey (for employers)

Attracting great talent will continue to be an ongoing challenge as companies look to develop a dedicated and loyal workforce. During the first half of 2018, we’re doing a deep-dive into how the best employers in the United States use their employer brands, value propositions, attraction strategies, tactical devices and tools to attract talent. We’ll also use the moment to uncover what employees view as important and/or attractive – as well as what they believe it takes to make an employer a truly great place to work.
