As you continue to read The Seamless Workforce, you'll quickly learn that I am passionate about developing sound workforce strategies. I believe that it's an absolute necessity for every firm, regardless of industry or size, to craft thought out, end-to-end workforce plans that serve as fuel to the year-to-year business objectives.
I have been working in the field for over 20 years, and my current role with Yoh Talent Solutions has afforded me the opportunity to meet and discuss workforce planning strategies with a broad spectrum of HR leaders. Consistently, I find that the current economic environment is pushing HR leadership to discover more efficient ways to find talent, and I'm not surprised that many are realizing the benefits of choosing third party partners to improve the methods to move talent in and up their organization.
Recently, we've done some work with Syngenta, an $8.1 billion global agriculture firm employing 5,000 workers in the U.S. and 24,000 worldwide. In 2007, Syngenta committed to outsourcing all U.S. recruitment to Yoh HR Solutions. Paula M. Coles, SPHR, the strategic business partner at Syngenta, shared her story with HRO Today in last month's issue.
As Paula explains, we're all faced with a pool of available, qualified candidates that is growing daily. As a result, talent acquisition is becoming more and more intensive.
