Bersin research shows that out of 16 Talent Acquisition (TA) performance drivers, recruiter relationships with hiring managers ranks #11. Yet, most hiring managers rate their recruiters at C+ in this aspect2.

Too many recruiters and hiring managers lack an understanding of one another's roles and fail to communicate about their respective needs and responsibilities. Hiring managers and recruiters have equal stakes and interest in converting candidates from search to hire. So how can companies work to improve this dysfunctional relationship?

In this webinar, Robin will showcase effective relationships between recruiters and hiring managers by:

  • Describing the value of such relationships
  • Introducing a maturity model
  • Providing tangible action steps

As your maturity in Talent Acquisition increases, getting this aspect right is supercritical. Register Now!
