Our recent TALiNT Partners Executive Dinner & Debate, held in Auckland, New Zealand, in partnership with Deel, brought together industry leaders who are at the forefront of shaping the future landscape of talent acquisition, providing invaluable insights into the current state of hiring and the challenges and opportunities ahead.

State of Hiring 2023 Report Highlights: Deel’s State of Hiring 2023 Report shed light on several key trends shaping global hiring practices. Notably, the report highlighted the increasing trend of hiring both locally and internationally, with distributed hiring extending beyond tech roles to encompass sales, operations, and content creation. Regions such as EMEA and APAC emerged as the fastest-growing hubs for hiring, with North America and Latin America closely following suit. Top countries for hiring included the USA, UK, Australia, Canada, and Germany, while popular global roles spanned software engineering, sales, content creation, and design. Salary trends showed an upward trajectory in EMEA and APAC, underlining the evolving dynamics of the global workforce.

Challenges and Solutions in Global Mobility: Discussions at the event delved into the complexities of global mobility and cross-border hiring. The conversation highlighted challenges such as changing legislation, tax implications, payroll management, and compliance requirements. In addressing these challenges, solutions such as Deel’s comprehensive platform, spanning over 190 countries and offering access to HR and compliance experts, were emphasized. The need for a human touch amidst the integration of AI in recruitment and HR processes was underscored, emphasizing the importance of maintaining a balance between innovation and personal connection.


Data Integration and Compliance Concerns: The issue of data integration and GDPR compliance emerged as a critical consideration in today’s interconnected world of talent acquisition. With organisations often utilizing multiple platforms across talent engagement, hiring, and onboarding, questions were raised about the flow and security of data. Compliance emerged as a top priority for talent acquisition leaders, highlighting the need for robust systems and processes to ensure adherence to regulations.

Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB): A significant portion of the discussions centered around diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB) in the workplace. Insights from tools like Culture Amp AI for diversity audits and surveys provided valuable perspectives on navigating generational diversity and fostering a sense of belonging across all demographics. The emphasis shifted from mere diversity and multiculturalism to a deeper focus on fostering an inclusive environment where every individual feels valued and empowered.


The evening was not just about exchanging ideas; it was about charting a course for the future of talent acquisition. The collective wisdom shared by leaders, from addressing succession planning challenges to embracing the need for continuous learning in the face of generational shifts, highlighted the resilience and adaptability of the industry.

Our sincere gratitude goes out to all the leaders who contributed their time and insights to make this event a success. Together, we are not merely navigating the future of work; we are actively shaping it.
