Over the years, HR has transformed from a largely administrative profession to one that profoundly impacts the strategic direction of an organization. This transformation has been led by HR professionals that consistently push the boundaries of people management, cementing themselves and the HR industry as key players in today’s business environment.

With Glassdoor reporting that the average job opening attracts 250 resumes, it’s hard to believe that 65 percent of recruiters, according to Jobvite, report their biggest challenge in hiring as a shortage of available talent. So why are talent acquisition teams struggling to manage candidates? Many applicants may just be unqualified. However, when it comes to filling open positions within their organizations, talent acquisition and recruitment marketing teams often fail to access an entire hub of data readily available to them: their past applicants.
Beamery, a candidate-relationship software company, claims that the key to hiring candidates is not just forwarding available jobs, but building valuable employer-candidate relationships prior to the application process. That’s why with the launch of their company in 2014, their offices are already expanding to three major European and American cities and their clientele includes big-name companies like Facebook and VMWare. Beamery is truly taking the recruitment software industry by storm.

The gig economy is exploding, but are companies truly embracing the diversity of their new workforce? For many, the answer is no. According to Ardent Partners’ 2016-2017 State of Contingent Workforce Management report, nearly 38 percent of the world’s total workforce is now considered “non-employee,” but only 63 percent of organizations are reshaping how work is done across the numerous talent sources in their enterprise. Without a unified talent acquisition solution to help manage the different types of workers in today’s world, companies may be missing out on the best-fit talent for their needs.
“By taking a more extensive view of their workforce and embracing a truly blended working population, companies can exercise more flexibility and adapt more easily to alternative ways of working to secure the talent in the right place and the right time to meet their needs,” says Kate Heath, global head of RPO, partners and alliances at Lumesse.

More than Just Rewards

Picture this: It’s 2030, and your company is struggling to grow, not because the services you provide are unnecessary, but because you simply cannot find the right employees to fill your most important positions. According to Rainer Strack of The Boston Consulting Group in a recent TED talk, this scenario may become a reality.

HRO Today CEO Elliot Clark has said that it has become this magazine’s job to recognize those who take so much time recognizing others in the workforce that they don’t have time to honor themselves.

The HRO Today Forum in Chicago in May provided the perfect opportunity to share the incredible work of this year’s leaders of distinction. The winners of our CHRO of the Year Awards, Talent Acquisition Leader of the Year Awards, and HR Healthcare Program of the Year Awards were also honored.
