6 Takeaways from Bersin By Deloitte's TA Maturity Model

So your recruiting team is hitting their goals, adding new sourcers, managers, and analysts, and has instituted a successful employee referral program. What next? Bersin by Deloitte set out to discover the most common denominators amongst mature talent acquisition teams, and released their findings in a comprehensive report available to their members. To save you a click, we broke down the key findings right here on the Teamable blog. Here's what they learned:

Why Employees Don't Refer Candidates

“And now, I’m gonna hand it over to Tim from HR, for a quick update on talent.” Tim, your talent team’s HR business partner, dutifully saunters to the front of the room and takes his position at the podium. He reiterates headcount goals, goes over the open roles he’s desperate to fill, and then--stop me if you’ve heard this one before--implores the company to send over their referrals.

“Referrals are an excellent source of hire, they’re more likely to take the job and more likely to stick around, so please, think about who you know and send them our way.” Tim goes on to explain that for a limited time only, there’s a special $10,000 bonus for any referred senior software engineer who gets hired. Cue some chipper murmuring from the crowd.

So, how does this story end? With an influx of referrals and a slew of great hires? Spoiler alert: Bruce Willis was dead the whole time and so was Tim's referral pipeline.
