  • Data Security The Data Dilemma

    Safeguarding employee privacy is a key concern in today’s digital economy.

    By Marta Chmielowicz

    With the digital economy in full swing, HR leaders are embracing technologies that capture employee data and deliver insights that can be interpreted to better attract, retain, and grow talent. But the flood of numbers pouring in from talent management platforms across the organization carries risk as well as reward.

  • Relocation Data Mobility Metrics That Matter

    Harnessing the power of data is leading to better decision-making and improved employee satisfaction to boot.

    By Debbie Bolla

    Global mobility has traditionally been a costly investment for organizations. In fact, according to Urban Bound, it costs more than $97,100 to relocate current employees who are homeowners and nearly $73,000 to relocate new hires who own homes. But in a tight labor market where talent is often a key differentiator, can organizations put a price on having the right person in the right role at the right time? That’s a tough question to answer, but luckily data is easing the cost implications of relocation while delivering additional insight into employee satisfaction, productivity, and retention.

    Strategies to develop and communicate a compelling employee value proposition.

    By Michael Switow

    In the early 2000s, not long after Kenexa (now part of IBM) launched a development and recruiting centre in an office park in Hyderabad, India, a new building rose quickly nearby.

  • The Self-Disruptive Leader

    In the age of transformation, executives are forced to adapt to a new way of working.

    By Michael Switow

    In an age of disruption, what types of leaders are needed to drive organisational success?“ It’s no longer good enough to be agile,” explains Korn Ferry’s Associate Client Partner Tim Wiseman. “You can’t just respond. You have to get in front. What we’ve used in the past to measure what ‘good’ looks like for leadership models is not going to get us to the future.” Instead, Wiseman says the best leaders are people who “get in front and break things before their competition breaks them.”
