Name the talent acquisition process

Wichita State University is preparing to take another step forward in the pursuit of excellence. This step forward will reinforce our capabilities and enhance our ability to attract highly skilled and motivated individuals by implementing a new talent acquisition system. The new system includes:

  • A new online tool
  • An updated career site
  • Automation of many currently manual processes
  • Robust reporting capabilities
  • Enhanced compliance capabilities

With this new system, we will be even more competitive in attracting talent. We know some of the brightest minds and imaginations are already part of the team at WSU as students, staff, faculty, alumni and much more.  Although Talent Acquisition is an accurate description of the process, it’s not very jazzy or memorable. We want to name the process and we need your help. Some themes to keep in mind are talent management, transformation, candidate and employee experience, integration and integrated systems.

Please submit your ideas to Krista Thacker at by May 24. All submissions will be entered into a drawing for WSU swag at the end of the submission period. Please be sure to include your name, how you are affiliated with WSU (e.g. student, faculty, staff, etc.) along with your email address with your suggestion.
