The EVOLVE Talent Acquisition Framework helps TA teams deliver world-class results. From initial assessment to specific action plans, EVOLVE empowers TA leaders to identify and prioritize areas for improvement so that no effort is wasted.
Teams, processes, technologies, and strategies are optimized over time, and organizations emerge stronger, more efficient, and better able to adapt to the needs of the ever-evolving talent marketplace.
"The opportunities and opportunity costs are high for employers. The time is now to understand maturity levels and build strategy and plans to address them. This self-assessment, like any, will illuminate short-and long-term opportunities and challenges, and help identify where to prioritize and invest, both from a resource and financial perspective."
- George LaRocque, Principal Analyst at #HRWINS

Pillars of TA
Three pillars of talent acquisition
Jobvite’s EVOLVE TA Framework assesses your organization’s maturity in 17 discreet process areas across the three pillars of TA: recruitment marketing, applicant management, and TA operations. We’ll help you optimize not just the process areas but also the connection points between process areas to see real business results.
Optimized recruitment marketing ensures your organization has a high-quality, engaged talent pool ready to convert into active candidates.
Want to focus on just the maturity of your recruitment marketing?
A Talent Acquisition organization’s level of maturity is determined by their ability to drive consistent results by leveraging people, process, and technology through the pillars of talent acquisition.
Level 1: Ad-hoc Talent Acquisition
Teams operating at an Ad Hoc maturity level are highly reactive, with limited measurements in place and little recruitment marketing activity. They have minimal technology or integrations between technologies and instead rely on manual and paper processes that are not scalable. At this maturity level, people, processes, and technology aren’t aligned.
Level 2: Developing, But Disconnected Talent Acquisition
Teams operating at a Developing maturity level have instituted some proactive and automated processes, including recruitment marketing and sourcing. They’re leveraging technology to support those processes, though their technologies aren’t entirely integrated. At this maturity level, teams are actively tracking and analyzing some performance metrics.
Teams operating at an Integrated maturity level have optimized their people, processes, and technologies to proactively attract and engage talent with highly automated processes. They’re able to drive effective recruitment marketing and sourcing strategies, tactics, and programs. While they’ve fully integrated their technologies, analytics remain fragmented. Despite that limitation, they’re still able to continually measure and improve key performance metrics.
Level 4: Advanced Talent Acquisition
At Level 4, companies have reached advanced maturity, leading to activation of cutting-edge strategies, increased channels, micro targeting, and increased personalization of recruitment marketing. Full automation is pursued and achieved wherever possible. Advanced content marketing is now a real possibility.
Using the EVOLVE TA Framework as a guide, CDW advanced their technologies and strategies across TA process areas. As a result, CDW has seen improved application conversion rates, created a candidate experience that attracts more talent, and optimized their recruiting campaigns.

Key Talent Audiences
These audiences have experiences and skill sets to fill high-volume jobs, geographically targeted jobs, or critical jobs like executive hiring.
These are demographic groups that businesses want to attract such as diversity & inclusion candidates, veterans and military hiring, and university relations for students, grads, and interns.
