Lately, I've found the term "talent acquisition" distasteful. Yes, these are only words. However, the implication that we seek our most valued resource (people) and "acquire" them, seems misguided. If I had the option to permanently rename the function, I'd rather see "talent alignment" or "talent attraction". Something that more closely represents the intended spirit behind the process.
We don't acquire talent or skills. We hire people. Real people.
We have to attract them, not acquire them.
