Tapping into Talent

Talent Acquisition Leader of the Year

The pressure on TA leaders to drive success is greater than ever before. See how this year’s award finalists are getting ahead with innovative initiatives.

By Taylor Thompson

With SHRM reporting that 83 percent of HR professionals have faced challenges recruiting the right job candidates in the past year, it comes as no surprise that organizations are restructuring their talent acquisition departments with the hopes of seeing positive change. Gone are the days of job applicants working to gain the attention of potential employers. Instead, that focus has shifted onto the organizations themselves as HR and talent acquisition leaders drive initiatives to help them stand out among the crowd in a competitive job market.

Next Generation of Leaders

By Cheryl Allen

There is great value in using generational research to effectively inform people practices. The current workforce makeup of baby boomers, Generation X, millennials, and Generation Z is likely one of the most diversified in history. Each generation is equipped with skills and knowledge based upon the environment they grew up in, and organizations are searching for them in the current competitive business environment.

As these digital natives become the dominant generation in the workforce, they are quickly squashing these misconceptions and bringing their positive influences to build their vision of a new work paradigm.

By Jeff Mike, James Guszcza, and Kathi Enderes

Underneath buzzwords like “disruption” and “digital transformation” lie some important truths for HR leadership. There is no denying that powerful technologies aimed at individual consumers have changed the game. The best of these technologies deliver compelling, personalized experiences to customers through digital platforms, smartphones, and increasingly, augmented and virtual reality.

CEO’s Letter: Serious Issues Require Serious Debate

HRO Today

By Elliot H. Clark

I have been waxing philosophical as I ponder the upcoming HRO Today Forum North America to be held at the MGM Resort in National Harbor, Md., from May 6th to 8th. Mostly, I have been thinking about people.

People are messy. People are complex, occasionally conflicted, fallible, and emotional. But managing people is the business of HR. And the practice of HR is evolving rapidly. Do you know who has the right answers about the ultimate future of HR? No one. We are all on the same roller coaster ride trying to see over the next rise because what follows may be a big stomach-churning turn. So everyone is trying to peer into the future because the only thing we are certain of is that the speed of this ride is accelerating.

Outside the Mold

Employee Development

Organizations need to reinvent growth strategies by providing opportunities to all levels of employees.

By Meghann Arnold

When it comes to developing a strong workforce, organizations too often provide opportunity to only “traditional” employees: Those who have college degrees and a resume full of experience, volunteerism, and organizational involvement. To put it lightly, organizations don’t always give opportunities to those who don’t fit the mold of advancement.
