You can have recruitment without talent acquisition,
but you cannot have talent acquisition without recruitment. Recruitment (at least the definition) is
simple: finding talent to fill open positions. Talent
acquisition, however, is a much bigger animal. Talent
acquisition takes into account future roles that will
need to be filled, and future gaps in talent that may
arise. These positions can be identified by looking at
the current organizational plan, or looking back on the
organization’s history to learn patterns that may arise
in the future. In some instances, a talent acquisition
strategy may project a need for positions that don’t
even exist in the organization yet. Talent acquisition is an all-encompassing talent strategy for the employee
lifecycle, and recruitment is the first stage.
