SWITCHING INDUSTRIES: A GUIDE FOR RECRUITERS

 

The agility of recruiters is one of the main reasons why we are resilient during times of change. Switching industry focus is one of those skills which makes most sense in the present moment as industries rise and fall with the shift to remote, the change in work habits, the change in people's priorities.

 

Is there a technique or system for doing this? What is the best way to switch an industry? Can we develop a framework?

 

- What industries are rising, which are falling?

- How to make the switch - Big Bang or by increments?

- How to accelerate through the change

- What are some common errors of those who make the switch?

- What are the problems with NOT making a switch?

 

All this and more in Brainfood Live on Air. We are with senior recruiters who are experts in employer branding and candidate UX -  Alla Pavlova, Recruiter (Riot Games), Christine Ng, Head of Talent & Media (Quantum Motion), Vanessa Raath, Founder (Talent Hunter) & Katrina Hutchinson-O'Neill, CEO (Join Talent)

November 5, 2021

EMPLOYEE GENERATED CONTENT: A CASE STUDY FROM IBM

 

There is no better form of content than EGC - Employee Generated Content. Today's job seeker does not want to see slick corporate videos, over produced marketing lit or sermon delivered by the CEO. What they want is to see people who are doing the jobs they are doing telling them how it is to work at the employer.

 

But knowing is not the same as doing! How do we get from the idea to the execution? Today's special will look at one of the best exemplars of unlocking EGC and enabling the employees to tell the story - IBM, via the Talent Marketing team led by Nick Thompson.

 

You will learn:

 

- How to have to conversation with marketing(!)

- How to get business endorsement

- How to activate socially influential employees

- Define what kind of stories you want to tell

- What channels, what format, what length, what tone, style and the rest

- How does this convert to applications? Or is this the wrong question?

- Who you need in your team to make this happen

- How to track and manage EGC

Essential stuff for any employer branding / talent attraction focused recruiters out there.

Brainfood Live On Air - Ep131 - Future Fit Talent Acquisition Leaders

October 29, 2021

FUTURE FIT TALENT ACQUISITION LEADERS

 

Talent Acquisition is a function no stranger to change, but perhaps there has never been a moment quite like this that is confronting our industry; radical decentralisation of organisation structure, diversification of employee contracts, shift from one to maybe multi-modal ways of operating, the blurring the divide between 'company' and 'market', the rise of social imperatives as a business priority and the loosening of organisational structure to facilitate internal mobility. And that's not including dramatic developments in technology with advances in AI, talent intelligence, people analytics and workforce automation.

 

How do we - as talent acquisition leaders - ensure that our departments are adequately staffed, skilled and organised for future fit?

 

There is no better analyst to ask than the legendary Kevin Wheeler - founder of the Future Talent Institute and world renowned workforce analyst, Kevin Wheeler.

 

You will learn:

 

- What are the underlying macro trends which TA leaders need to be aware of?

- What skills are TA departments going to require to be fit for purpose in the next decade?

- How does the shift to remote / distributed working change the work of TA?

- What is the impact of diversification of employee types under management?

- How we force rank the key tasks of a current TA team vs future TA team?

- How do TA get better today and stay on the right path for the next decade?

- What do TA leaders need to do to future proof the function?

RECRUITING IN INDIA IN 2021 / 2022

 

Brainfood virtual roadshow is taking a long overdue visit one of the most important recruitment markets on the planet - India. Home to over 1 billion people, India's working population size, distinct regional diversity, leading edge technology companies and world famous off shoring / services companies combine to make this market one of the most dynamic to review. I also suspect, for folks on the outside, it is profoundly misunderstood.

- What is the status of remote work in India?

- What is the labour supply / demand split in India?

- What are the main challenges for recruiters in India?

- What do we mean when we talk about DE&I in India?

- Do people travel and relocate for work?

- Which sectors are the most popular for graduates

- How do you get good at hiring for the India market?

 

We’re with Mitasha Singh, People & Culture (Unifynd), Sarang Brahme, Programme Manager - Employee Experience, Engagement and Employer Branding (Capgemini), Bharath C, Tech Sourcer (Facebook),

Brainfood Live On Air - Ep129 - Where does ‘culture‘ fit in today‘s hiring process

October 15, 2021

As Recruiters and HR professionals we care more than most about company culture. Hiring new people into the organisation is probably the quickest way to change company culture. So how do we make sure that change happens for the better, and not for the worse?

- How do we capture the dynamism of organisational culture?
- How do we use our understanding of company culture in assessing candidates?
- What is the line between hiring for people who we think add to the company culture vs discriminating against people because they behave differently from us?
- What measurements can we use to better understand 'culture fit'?

All this and more, in Brainfood Live On Air. We're with Nims Dhawan, Organisation Design (UK Ministry of Defence), Stanislaw Wasowicz, Regional Director Alliances (SmartRecruiters) and friends.
