Is there any logical grouping or hierarchical order to the factors that impact talent management? For example, gaps include: A) imprecise career paths, B) engagement, C) skills development, D) subjective performance assessments, etc. Are there rules about which is foundational and which is built on the foundation?

Are there best practices or techniques for using social resumes and mobile recruiting tools when sourcing candidates? I'm looking for guidelines on making sure we see each résumé without it becoming a time management issue. Our goal is the same: Find the best available talent, but our team is primarily trained to recruit the old-fashioned way.
