What challenges does the future of work present for Australian employers?
The future of work is here. In Australia, significant developments in technology and automation across our largest industries are already creating new demands for talent and a re-think of internal talent development and mobility. As a talent partner, we are doing much more than sourcing external talent for our customers, we’re taking a holistic approach to talent acquisition and employer branding by ensuring that our customers are focused on internal skills development and alignment to future needs. It is critically important that we are creating new opportunities for those people whose roles are at risk of redundancy due to technology and automation. Retrenching employees and hiring in new talent is not a sustainable strategy from a talent attraction or brand perspective and has obvious moral implications.
With Jade Clifford, Executive Director of RPO EMEA, Allegis Global Solutions
From communicating with job seekers to onboarding new hires, technology has changed the entire HR landscape. Talent acquisition leaders are now able to leverage intelligent tools to do tasks such as conduct interviews on mobile phones, answer candidate inquiries via social media platforms, and even eliminate bias in the hiring process. The modern HR team has become a hybrid function where humans and machines work together in a seamless, efficient, and effective relationship. But enabling a corporate culture that welcomes these technological innovations and managing the change management process into the digital era can be challenging. Here, Jade Clifford, Executive Director of RPO EMEA at Allegis Global Solutions, shares her insights.

In the United States, stocks finished a volatile quarter up, marking the third straight positive quarter. Both the S&P 500 and the Dow Jones Industrials increased by 1.2 percent within the quarter.
