Modern recruiting is no longer a quest to find the right people to fill pre-existing roles, but rather a process to get the skills the organization needs today and in the future. This disruption is driven by conditions adversely affecting organizations of all types, such as unfavorable economic conditions, the abrupt need for work from home strategies, and overall changes brought about by the pandemic. And one important idea to remember – the circumstances brought forth by the pandemic didn’t replace the organization’s pre-existing challenges – they simply added to them.
When considered this way, skills can be acquired and developed in more creative ways – through internal projects and gigs, via targeting learning delivered to new hires to close any identified skills gaps, as part of an individualized development plan, and via the emerging and many outside sources – freelance platforms, contract workers, or outsourcing arrangements. And lastly, HR leaders must consider how roles break down into skills and take note that some of these skills may be best taken over by smart technologies like AI.
In this session, Trish and Steve will discuss:
Creative ways to expand opportunity for skills acquisition inside and outside the organization
How focusing on skills acquisition and skills development throughout your talent management lifecycle
How modern HR technology can enable and empower new hires and existing employees to take ownership of their skills and career development
How to re-frame your talent acquisition strategy into a skills acquisition strategy
