Our world is has changed, and continues to change.
Recruiting needs to change as well. The traditional resume-scan, resume-based interviewing process still works for well-defined roles in well-established organizations. But if your organization is changing rapidly, growing, or transforming, and talent is your life blood, the traditional talent acquisition process will not serve you well. Instead, you need to get realistic about the talent scarcity challenges you face today, and will increasingly face in future.
The traditional ‘psychological contract between employer and employee is dead.
The Covid 19 pandemic, and its lingering global impact,
the outsourcing of jobs to less developed countries by large corporations in the drive to increase their short-term profit,
- the growth of the ‘gig’ economy, also driven by the desire to increase short term corporate profit,
- the upsets in the global supply chain when impacted by adverse global events,
- the constant threat of climate change’s negative ecological impacts,
- and now once again, the specter of potential nuclear war, and the resulting fear of losing control over one’s life, sparked by Russian Leader Putin’s invasion of the Ukraine,
have changed people’s attitude toward work forever. Many people have far less interest in a life-long career than they have in a reasonable work | life balance right now.
