LinkedIn Talent Connect AWARDS FINALIST – “Recruiting Innovation”
By Dave Mendoza

“Informatica’s talent acquisition strategy emphasizes competitive intelligence (CI) mapping and how it can translate findings into actionable sourcing channels. CI findings are cataloged into a streamlined and simplified library that can be easily shared with stakeholders to act as a decision making aid. Major corporations that invest in developing deep and highly organized CI libraries focus on product marketing objectives. Talent acquisition objectives are seldom afforded such order and precision. Informatica has developed an intuitive approach that combines CI with subject matter expertise, product line and social media ecosystems in mind.”
