In today’s competitive business world, talent has the potential to be the greatest strength of an organization and one of its most powerful sources of competitive advantage. But developing a top talent pool requires more than just a good recruitment strategy: culture, technology, data insights, benefits, learning, engagement, and more are emerging as top considerations.

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.

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.

What Does the Future of HR Look Like?

HRO Today Forum 2019

Attend the HRO Today Forum in May and find out.

By Taylor Thompson

In the last few years, the HRO Today Forum events have covered a wide array of themes, including “The Talent Cloud” and “Driving Corporate Strategy,” to capture how HR has evolved. And while these advancements and responsibilities bring an abundance of new opportunities for HR, they also present challenges. This ultimately leaves HR executives and their teams to decide where to focus their energy and whether it will result in a positive outcome for their organization. So for 2019, “The Great HR Debate” seemed fitting for the HRO Today Forum North America in May.

Everything’s Peachy in Employee Engagement

Peachy Mondays

The 2018 iTalent Competition winner empowers organisations to act on worker feedback in real-time to make a real difference.

By Taylor Thompson

In the past few decades alone, human resources has evolved from an administrative function to a growing industry arguably centered around the most important department in an organisation. The workforce has transformed to accommodate advancements in technology and the work-life balance expectations of the up-and-coming generation of workers. Out of this change comes the race to not only retain top talent, but to maintain an organisation’s current workforce. What better way to keep top performers than going to them directly to find out what works and what doesn’t? Whilst asking employers for feedback on current business practices sounds like a straightforward task, James Anderson, co-founder of Peachy Mondays, began to see otherwise.

Overcoming Challenges

HRO Today

By Debbie Bolla

It’s not uncommon to hear a CHRO in the APAC region say that one of the biggest challenges they face today is the talent shortage. Such is the case for Prasanth Narayanan, director and CHRO for Carnival Group, who says the growing economy in India is driving a substantial supply and demand gap. What’s refreshing to hear is Carnival’s proactive strategy to get ahead of curve.

Narayanan explains that the organisation has worked hard to develop an attractive employee value proposition (EVP), “Come Celebrate, Yourself & Work”, which allows them to attract the right candidates—ones that reflect the company values and purpose.

The Power of Integration

iTalent Competition

This year’s iTalent Competition winner is helping organizations reduce time to hire and maintain compliance to boot.

By Taylor Thompson

According to the U.S. Department of Labor, the average cost of a poor hiring decision can equal 30 percent of the first year’s potential earnings. Glassdoor and the Brandon Hall Group also report that 95 percent of employers admit to suffering from at least one bad hire every year. With increasing pressure to find the right hires and growing candidate expectations of a customer-like experience, HR needs a vetting process that can keep up with the rapidly-changing nature of the hiring process.
