A strong talent function is critical to the success of any organisation, but with the shift of work from permanent to gig, local to global and manual to automated, what does the new world of work actually look like and as recruiters, where do we fit in? There are three forces dominating the talent conversation and the 11th Annual Australasian Talent Conference (ATC) 2017 is going to explore all of them.
Automation: From search tools and application tracking systems to chatbots and algorithms, technology is automating more and more aspects of recruitment. Will we all be replaced? What will it be like to recruit in 5 and 15 years? Emerging tools include augmented reality and interactive voice recognition, where you can simulate the work environment and search for candidates by simply asking a computer. Understanding and exploring these tools and emerging technologies is vital to success. It’s critical for talent professionals to get ahead of the curve and understand how these tools can be used to benefit the business.
The Humane Recruiter: Recruiting has always been about developing relationships with candidates. Corporations are struggling to provide an inclusive workplace to foster innovation, decision making and productivity. The key to success is to create wide and deep relationships to connect and engage candidates. It is about being authentic and responsive. It is also about providing candidates with an engaging and smooth experience when learning about or applying and clearly showing them why they should work for your firm. Technology is essential to making this possible.
Talent Economy: The world of work has morphed rapidly over the past decade. Talent is scattered around the globe. Value is in narrow skills on the one hand and in broad capabilities and potential on the other. The distribution of work has moved away from regular employees to a potpourri of part-time, temporary, contract and consultant workers. The structure of organisations is changing – small is beautiful, but so is mega-large. Where are we headed and how do recruiters fit in and thrive?
On the surface, these three separate drivers are working in parallel however, when you look closely, you’ll notice that they are all intrinsically linked.
Candidate discontent is rising. They are loudly complaining about your job seeker experiences and the brand of the recruiter is being tarnished. Could automating the basic and repetitive functions of the recruiter allow us the time we need as talent professionals to operate at the top of our skillset – to have the time and space required to be a genuine partner – the rise of The Humane Recruiter is made possible by automation! If talent is as we suggested, scattered around the globe, doesn’t technology play a major part in connecting us all? How do we though incorporate these remote and non-permanent employees into our culture?
It’s a fascinating time to be in Recruitment. This year’s ATC is designed to prepare you for a new era of Talent Management, to understand its accelerated drivers, adopt emerging tools and adapt to the next generation of talent roles and deliver on a new set of expectations. Join us.
