Talent acquisition is an approach to building a talented team of employees. It is an ongoing process of building relationships, planning hiring needs, and finding a constant pipeline of candidates. With this strategic approach, employers can ensure they are consistently attracting the best talent to their company.
Recruiting is finding a candidate to fill a role for a company. Different from talent acquisition, it is not continuous. Instead, employers begin recruitment once they have a vacancy at their organization. Recruiting as a process aims to fill in the workforce gaps within the company.
