TOPICS: The Future of Work – What does it mean for Recruiters?
Recruiting has been at the forefront of digital change for a number of years. Early market shapers such as Seek and LinkedIn have forever changes the landscape of how you recruit talent.
So while it would be ease to say that recruiting has been an early adapter to digital change, the reality is there, is even more change on it’s way. However, this time the disruption is being driven by the changes to the jobs themselves rather than how we find and place candidates for the jobs.
What are these changes? The world of work, as we know it is about to change dramatically, in the not too distant future, we will move from the binary employee/not employee model in our workforce, to an organisational eco system with a range of stakeholders that contribute to the success of an organisations, but not necessarily as an “employees” as we know them today.
The new world of work includes a gig economy, with freelancers, older workers reinventing themselves, flexible work practices, AI and robots joining us at work or taking our jobs creating massive job displacement and the need to retrain and redeploy large numbers of employees. What does this all mean for the Recruiters and for both your clients and your candidates?
How do we plan for a rapidly changing world, where the whole concept of what work is, who does it and how, will be redefined and challenged like never before?
This presentation, will highlight the scope and scale of the change ahead and provide some frameworks to help you think about how you prepare both for your organisation and your own career.
