Use Cloud e-Learning To Build A Self-Developing Organisation

Posted by Mathew French on 23 February 2017

The HR Professionals of today are struggling to build a culture of coaching, feedback, development, and mentorship for their Employees. Given the fact that more than half the workforce is now made up of Millennials, it is essential that your organisation provides them with the thing that they ask for most, which is, someone to learn from. This approach has been described as the 'Self Developing Organisation.' That is, an organisation that has the capacity, the technology and the operational agility to develop, train and empower on the fly. With the rise of the need for real-time learning and empowerment on the rise, rather than think about your learning and HR strategy as one of 'delivering training,' think about it as 'building a self-developing organisation.'

The Learning Curve Is The Earning Curve

Posted by Mathew French on 7 February 2017

According to Bersin, providing Employees the opportunity for learning and development in the workplace has become a paramount attractor in the job market, particularly given the number of Millennials in the workforce and their focus on just that. It has been posited that today's youth will potentially have 70+ year careers, and they understand that their ability to grow, learn and progress is perhaps the most important driver of their future earnings potential and job satisfaction. Companies that focus their culture on career growth and learning, outperform their peers in innovation, long term growth, and employee retention.

Which HR Trends Matter To Your Business In 2017?

Posted by Mathew French on 19 January 2017

At this time of year, there are a lot of articles floating around which profess to know the top trends for HR during the coming year. Sometimes these articles are valid (and backed up by a significant amount of data), and sometimes there is a lot of crystal ball gazing going on. Ultimately, it is becoming more and more difficult to accurately predict future HR trends, however, there are a few annual reports that warrant investigation. One of those reports is Deloitte's annual Human Capital Trends report. The 2016 offering outlines the opinions and perspectives of 7,000 HR and business leaders. That's a significant amount of data gathered from a global cohort, so it is worthwhile taking a look at the picture those 7,000 respondents painted about the likely short and long-term future of business from the HR perspective.

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.

Culture First, Skills Second: Recruitment For Long-Term Success

Posted by Dr. Zivit Inbar on 1 November 2016

When I meet with fast growing start-ups, they often say: 'we need help in writing position descriptions, working with recruiters, sorting resumes.' This is exactly why recruitment fails. With this approach, it is most likely that these start-ups will end up recruiting the wrong people. They may get the headcount number right, but consequences for the culture and teamwork will eventually impact company performance.

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?
