It is a process of acquiring and finding skilled resources for realising the organisation’s needs or the labor requirement.
It is often confused with recruitment. Recruitment is about filling vacancies and finding appropriate candidates with a defined set of skills. On the other hand, talent acquisition is a continuous process that involves focusing on the long term planning and search of appropriate candidates with a special skill set. It focuses on finding specialists, future executives and leaders.
Basically, unlike talent acquisition, recruitment addresses the short-term and immediate headcount need of the company.
