How To Avoid Hiring The Wrong Candidate

Posted by Dr. Zivit Inbar on 6 December 2016

In Dr. Zivit Inbar’s previous blog, she described the recruitment process as being based on four major principles: culture based recruitment, workforce planning, transactional activities and candidate selection. Zivit also mentioned that many start-ups fail because they duplicate the recruitment principles of big corporations and focus their time and efforts on the transactional part of the recruitment process, which should actually only take about 5% of the recruitment time for start-ups. The main focus (around 80% of the process) should be on the selection process.

From Talent Management to People Management

Posted by Mathew French on 27 October 2016

The world of managing people is a movable feast of transformation. For today's organisations, the focus has shifted from automating and integrating your talent practices, to providing holistic product ecosystems that act as enablers for the provision of stellar people management. The key concern for today's HR professionals and business leaders can be summarised as: employee engagement, teamwork, innovation, collaboration and empowerment. Leaders and managers need HR technology solutions that provide more than just the automation of processes and tasks. The systems of the future need to offer functionality that can increase engagement, enhance efficiencies and improve productivity so as to provide your business with better operational performance, increased value, strategic oversight and the capacity to pivot on a dime when the need arises in any of these contexts. As the HR technology market continues to evolve, disrupt and be disrupted, what will this mean for the future of HR and the future of work?
