Talent Acquisition Research
For the new world of work
Global labor markets and talent economies are changing – and the way we build, develop, and manage a modern workforce continues to evolve.
What it is
The way we define success in HCM – and the way we achieve it – is changing rapidly. Industry research exists as a way to make sense of the myriad strategies, practices, technologies, and services available to you. From navigating the ever-changing $1 trillion market of HR technologies and services to discovering the most cohesive talent acquisition strategy for your industry, vertical, company and team, Lighthouse is dedicated to illuminating the many paths you can take to effectively attract, engage, and retain talent.
What it isn't
Industry research is widely misunderstood in our space. The countless voices of journalists, bloggers, consultants, and solution providers offer corporate talent leaders plenty of opinions and perspectives on the state of HCM. But while discourse and product profiles are valuable – and even analysts at Lighthouse Research write blogs and editorials – Lighthouse is not an open forum, and it won’t pitch you a specific product. Rather, we’re dedicated to showing you where each boat is in the harbor. By monitoring the vendor landscape, studying emerging key practices, and illuminating impactful innovation, we can assess which boat will take you where you need to go.
How We Work
We’re not your typical Ivory Tower analyst firm. Our goal is to conduct compelling research that drives actionable insight for today’s talent advisors – and the business leaders they support. To do that, we’ve built an expansive network of talent professionals including some of the most innovative minds in the industry. While maintaining an eagle-eye perspective on emerging trends, we leverage these relationships to vet our research for practical analysis and application. At Lighthouse, we firmly believe that any HCM initiative should be anchored in this kind of methodology so our clients know precisely where they are before charting a course to where they want to be.
Why HCM Research is Important
In today’s highly competitive, candidate-driven hiring climate, industry research offers a unique advantage to solution providers and talent leaders alike. At Lighthouse, we believe that objective analysis of evolving key practices and emerging technologies remains the best way to gauge market viability, develop forward-thinking strategies, and modernize HCM process to support business goals in the near- and long-term.
