Talent acquisition & talent management improvements

Vodafone is revamping hiring and talent management as it shifts from telecom to tech company. The British telecom is adding 7,000 software engineers to its European workforce by 2025. Part of the goal is to bring more intellectual property in-house instead of relying on outside suppliers who own the IP.
