Ep 89: Talent Acquisition Evolution

This week sees a first for the show, rather than me just interviewing one guest, in this episode I’m interviewing two. I recently headed down to Pepsico’s UK offices in Reading to have a conversation with Kevin Hough, their Head of Talent Acquisition for the UK and Ireland, and Dan Fitzpatrick, Talent Acquisition Lead for PepsiCo Global Concentrate Solutions. We covered a lot of ground in our discussion and it was great to hear Kevin and Dan talk about some of the everyday realities of in house recruitment within a large corporate. In the interview we discuss:     •    PepsiCo’s recruiting challenges     •    Anticipating STEM recruitment needs     •    How Talent Acquisition is changing as a discipline     •    Is recruiting the same as marketing?     •    The changing skill set of the in house recruiter     •    Rethinking relationships with recruitment agencies     •    The role of technology Kevin and Dan also give us their views on the likely future for talent acquisition.
