Are you responsible for managing a key talent acquisition sourcing or pipeline program – like employee referrals, the intern program, military and veteran recruiting, or contingent labor?

Your company is counting on you to attract top talent.  But you’re struggling to get your colleagues – both your peers and your superiors – excited about this program, let alone help you carry out key tasks.

Fortunately, there is a way you can learn how to improve your talent acquisition program without alienating your colleagues.

The TAPM Academy is a blueprint for an internally driven, continuous improvement process for your program. The methodology helps you tie the program goals to the company’s strategic goals, partner with leadership and peers to get support and buy-in, and calculate program ROI.

Whether you run a single program in addition to your other responsibilities or you focus on talent acquisition programs as your primary responsibility, this course is for you.

TAPM Academy

You’re smart. So why has it been so hard for you to run a talent acquisition program?

We’ve been in your shoes. You’re probably a whole team of one, right? And to run your program well, you often have to rely on people in other departments, or ask busy managers or co-workers to help carry the load. Add on top of that the additional work your program requires to make deadlines, alleviate concerns and put out fires.

Isn’t there another way to do this?

You’ve tried learning on your own, reading as much as you can about talent acquisition programs, project management, or strategy development. Maybe you’ve taken a PM course or two. But there doesn’t seem to be one book or one course designed specifically to help you carry out an effective talent acquisition program.

Until now.

We’ll walk you through everything you need to know in just 8 hours so you can …

  • Streamline your program to spend less time on busy work
  • Tie the program goals to the company’s strategic goals
  • Build a business case and calculate the ROI of my programs
  • Partner with leadership and peers to get support and buy-in
  • Learn and apply best practices
  • Understand the concerns of your internal customer base
  • Improve collaboration among your co-workers
  • Manage everything with confidence.
