Talent means the skill that is within someone quite naturally – to do something that is hard. At the same time, someone who has the ‘talent’ is able to do something without trying hard. It is an ability that someone is born with. It is a high degree of ability or of aptitude. Someone who has talent is referred to as talented: For eg., Sachin Tendulkar has a talent for playing cricket. In such cases, we say that he or she is ‘born with a talent’.
Talent acquisition is the process of finding and acquiring skilled workforce for organizational needs ! Talent acquisition is quickly becoming a unique profession, perhaps even distinct from the practice of general recruitment. In many progressive companies, there is a separate ‘function’ to meet specific needs of the company whether it is in Sales & Marketing, Research & Development or even in Administration. At Rambuna Consultants, when a client company of ours places its trust on our recruiting abilities – we realize our importance and the need of the hour for the client company.

In techno-commercial roles for ‘system integrator’ or MNC distributor companies, we focus on recruiting only the ‘street-smart’ candidates and this quality is important to us, more than even educational qualifications and work experience. I personally make sure that the shortlisted candidates have the pre-requisites and dexterity to perform at the earliest under trying market conditions, keeping in mind the scant resources of the client. In such cases, we believe that the overall success depends on technical and functional competencies and alignment to the company culture.
