How Innovations Revolutionize Talent Acquisition

How Innovations Revolutionize Talent Acquisition

This past week I had the opportunity to attend the Spring SourceCon event in Anaheim, CA. It was chock full of ideas, information, and enthusiasm. One of the highlights of the trip for me was a presentation by Kerstin Wagner. Wagner is the Head of Talent Acquisition for Deutsche Bahn. The theme of her presentation was “How Innovations Revolutionize Talent Acquisition.” Thirty minutes into her presentation I took to Twitter and announced to the world that I had a new hero. Presentations can resonate with you for a variety of reasons, but for me, it was the attitude or philosophy that Wagner and her team have taken in their quest to become a top employer. I found it to be very progressive and a great example of how innovation, branding, marketing, and technology can all come together and be an integral part of an overall talent acquisition strategy. While I could never do this presentation justice by simply putting it into words, I wanted to share some of my key takeaways.
