Talent management: UK firms try new tactics to attract rising stars

Elite UK employers are changing tactics in a bid to recruit top young talent, reports Alicia Clegg in the Financial Times. With demand for star students outstripping domestic supply, some UK firms are now travelling to destinations as remote as Australia and India to hire rising young stars. Other businesses are adopting early identification strategies” to pick up promising students before they graduate, notes the author. These strategies include replacing work experience with structured internships designed to get stars into the talent pipeline early on.

Several employers are also strengthening their links to educators by setting up business-oriented degrees in association with universities and professional bodies, writes the author. Others are appointing undergraduates as student campus managers” to promote their image by organizing corporate events on campus and to act as early talent spotters, she adds. While prestigious schools are widely recognized as large pools of top talent, some firms are now focusing their recruitment drive on lesser-known establishments, where there are usually still a few top performers. Others are working with organizations that promote opportunities for bright students from disadvantaged backgrounds. According to experts, these are ways for elite employers to build a socially diverse talent base without lowering their standards. A handful of companies are even sponsoring scholar programs for rising stars still at secondary school, signaling that the talent war is set to escalate, concludes the author.
