This may be broadly described as a ‘shotgun’ approach which will reveal the same candidates to everyone time after time after time.

The following Talent Acquisition briefing, which is proprietary to Peak Consultancy and part of our I.P., is for your guidance when you need to identify the very best talent and find ways to attract them to your organisation.
