MANAGING in the

NEW WORLD

Talent Trending

A study conducted back in 1998 confirmed that past experience had little to do with future work success. That is why it needs to be dumped from its exalted position during the hiring process. Some companies such as LinkedIn, Accenture and Tesla are working on newer, innovative models to improve their talent recruitment cycles. Neuroscience-based AI is being preferred over the traditional resume. One company helping many in this hiring is Pymetrics uses an academic process to evaluate any person’s emotional and cognitive capabilities through a game-like scenario. Brain tasks such as puzzles and quizzes are provided to aspiring candidates to deduce their problem-solving and multitasking skills. Other such companies are simply asking innovative questions. Some have set hunger at work as a key differentiator rather than which college someone went to.

The fight to get the best of talent recruitment is heating up with each passing year. In addition to recruiting the best, retention has become another challenge. A survey conducted revealed that nearly two-thirds of those employed and three quarter of those in the same survey below the age of 34, believe that periodic job-hopping will further their career prospects. Contrary however to all this evidence, it actually pays off to encourage one’s best employees to actually consider external job offers. This is because all kinds of employees but especially the millennial age group wants constant training and development. This kind of management training can best be achieved by pursuing a variety of assignments in similarly varied companies. It is well-known that employees do consider leaving. So, it is better that leave decisions are openly discussed as it helps build transparency. When the best of employees depart on good terms, it actually enhances the position of the company as others realize that the employers do not come in between career aspirations, while also treating the departed ones with respect. When departures are managed smoothly, it is extremely likely that those leaving may come back.

A lot of companies and recruiters have become skeptical about their own abilities in talent recruitment. As a result, beyond the usual interviews and resume screening, job auditions have become the new norm. For a lot of employees, especially experienced professionals, this is not welcome as they see it as a new form of exploitation. However, since it has become a norm, so not much can be done about it except to accept it. Job auditions are alright in a few circumstances that the candidate must appreciate. First of all, it is okay when the number of hours to be devoted to such unpaid work is minimal, say two hours. Another matter to introspect is whether it is a dummy project one is working on or a real one. If it is the former, one might as well accept, but the latter needs financial reimbursement. A candidate can even negotiate to be paid for the duration of the audition. Another factor to consider is the learning part. If that is high, one might as well go along.

Talking about class is quite a social taboo in different parts of the world, but especially in the US. However, instead of avoiding these conversations, workplaces must encourage open discussions. Class must be included as one of the diversity factors during talent recruitment rounds. This is because class migrants often find themselves ill-equipped to take on others from traditionally white-collared backgrounds. Most of those who grew up in working-class backgrounds, came with little work experience. But such class migrants must be nurtured because they bring certain qualities to the table that those from more privileged backgrounds fail to. The onboarding process needs to be really looked into so that these people end up as the right culture fit despite their previous hardships. To start off, companies must consciously try to not hire only from Ivy League colleges, because inherently they are expensive and thus not inclusive to the working-classes. Culture fit must be clearly understood by the recruiters. Referral hiring must be limited as it leads to inbreeding from the familiar backgrounds. During promotions too, teamwork must be valued. Work-life balance must be kept open for all.

Different people have different measures to cope with stress or excess anxiety. The most common ones involve either to face it through or buckle down and just bear it. Professional workers with a “bias for action” often pride themselves on being tough so simply carry on. Retreating meanwhile can help cope for a while, but none of these approaches last long. They often lead to unethical behaviour, chronic exhaustion, burnout and poor decision-making. Companies with a proactive talent management wing set out ways to tackle this through relaxation facilities like entertainment zones, workout equipment or nap zones. Instead of either retreating or trying to brave out, a third method has been identified with long-term positive health effects- focusing on learning. One can start off by picking up some new skills, learning some new language or simply studying further. To start learning at work, one must start off internally. After this, one must start learning in a group with others. Companies can even initiate such learning activities as part of their corporate training sessions within their work breaks.
