ON HIRING SENIOR LEADERS

Have you had this experience?

CEO comes to you and asks you to begin a confidential search for a replacement for an incumbent C-level leaders. Search is going to take 6 months, so you need to get started now as there is a predicted need to upgrade the department - what do you do?

- How to hire C-suite?
- How to hire confidentially?
- What are the qualities required to lead?
- Can these be quantified or is really just chemistry with the CEO?
- What techniques, approaches work best when hiring at this level?

QUANTIFYING COMPANY CULTURE - WHY & HOW?

There isn't a TA, HR Manage or CEO who doesn't think their company culture is the most important thing about their business.....but is there a way to actually measure it?

In a world increasingly driven by metrics, company culture is one where we are consistently lagging, relying at best on periodic pulse surveys, at worst on - you guessed it - gut feel.

Is there a better way? Can we actually measure company culture? And if so, what do we measure? Are there any patterns to see in how the most effective companies operate?

These are the questions we are going to try and answer in this week's Brainfood Live On Air. We're with Social Psychologist and Talent Intelligence lead Leila Mortet (Philips), Skill Scout CEO Elena Valentine and People Analytics Consultant, Natasha Oulis (NeoConsulting) and Brian Evje, Head of People (Uncapped)

Nico Blier-Silvestri in the co-pilot seat.

TALENT INTELLIGENCE - WHAT, WHY, HOW

Do you know what 'talent intelligence' is?

You'd be forgiven if you didn't, because it's a concept which has stubbornly stayed on the fringes of the TA, mainly due to strategic neglect by businesses who had long under estimated the impact acquiring top talent had on the bottom line.

But as businesses better understand the importance of the talent they have a their disposal, Talent Intelligence is becoming a function distinct with the TA function, sitting in between traditional recruiter and analytics. They are there to tell you where the best talent is in the market - where best to put the jobs, where best to put the recruiter hiring for those jobs.

We're going to be talking about Talent Intelligence in Ep102 of Brainfood Live On Air, with some of the leading brains in the industry - Leila Mortet, Talent Intelligence at Philips, Toby Culshaw, Talent Intelligence Lead at Amazon and Allison Ettridge, Founder at Talent Intuition.

Brainfood Live On Air 101 - How to hire when you’re overwhelmed by Job Applications

March 19, 2021

HOW TO HIRE (WHEN YOUR OVERLOADED WITH JOB APPLICATIONS?)

Over the past 12 months we've observed the phenomenon of surging applicant volume, with numbers from 100-1000% more than the same moment the year before.  For many industries, especially ones which are absorbing workers from industries made dormant by lockdown, handing excess volume of job applications has become THE hiring challenge to tackle.

The shift to remote - and the 'hire from anywhere' approach - suggests that this pattern of high volume job applications can be expected for many types of job role.

- How to structure your TA team to handle it?
- How do you maintain / improve candidate experience?
- Does your relationship with the hiring managers change?
- What tech stack do you need to handle the volume?
- How do you ensure the TA team - the recruiter experience - remains intact?

All this and more in Ep101 of Brainfood Live On Air. We're with Clair Bush, VP of Marketing at ph.creative, Jelmer Koppelmans Founder at Roadtrip and Ben Gledhill, Head of Resourcing at Thames Water
