The Value of an Effective Talent Pipeline

Talent Pipelining is hugely beneficial recruitment strategy for both employer and candidate, but one that is seldomly utilised in early stage and scale up SaaS businesses.

What is Talent Pipelining ?

Building a Talent Pipeline, or Talent Pipelining, is the process of attracting and engaging with potential new employees, well in advance of any structured recruitment process for a particular role.

It involves creating specific personas relating to future hiring needs and actively targeting individuals who match the criteria either through dedicated Search, or as part of an inbound recruitment marketing strategy.

Once the potential candidate has been attracted to the business, it is important to interact with them and keep them engaged with your company until you are ready to make the hire and you can approach them more formally.

Some describe this as building a Talent Pool, which will include a number of individuals who offer the skills and experience that you are likely to be looking for in the future.

Building a Talent Pipeline is a hugely efficient way to manage an effective recruitment process and will save any organisation a huge amount of time and money.

There are a number of advantages to building an effective talent pipeline during uncertain times and over the coming weeks we will be providing further insight for both Professionals and Businesses in the SaaS industry.
