Results of the HR Hub Poll in August 2021

Allen Associates, News & Blog

Everyone who attended our Zoom HR Hub in August was asked to answer five multiple choice questions linked to transformation and talent acquisition. The results provide a useful benchmark against which to measure different organisations' approaches to culture transformation and agile hiring practices. Read the full Q&A below.

Our August HR Hub featured guest speaker Claire Holness, VP and Global Head of Talent Acquisition at one of the world's leading communications firms. Claire talked about culture transformation and the adoption of agile hiring practices, sharing insights and providing takeaways for hiring managers, recruiters and others involved in the people management function to apply within their own businesses.
