Talent Acquisition Framework - Selection at the center


Bersin recently released its new Talent Acquisition framework.

Overall, I agree with the central part on how selection is represented here. Selection is the key strategic function of Talent Acquisition. Yet, while traditional reference checking or telephone references are often associated with background check services, automated reference checks, such as Checkster’s checkups are closer to assessments than to criminal checks.
Maybe Bersin should make the distinction between employment verification, which is totally part of background checking, and reference checking which is not really about checking the past but aims at assessing past performance.
