Ep 342: Trust & Accountability
Trust at work has been in the news a lot recently. Whether it's Zoom fatigue caused by too many pointless meetings, employers using software to spy on employees in their own homes or forced returns to the office, it is clear that our new world of work still doesn't sit comfortably with some employers.
Ep 334: Fair AI
The number of talent acquisition technology solutions offering AI continues to grow exponentially. However, we must look at AI's role in recruiting through a critical lens to ensure transparency and that technologies are fair and ethical. If AI is being used to improve the candidate experience and remove bias, how do we make sure it isn't actually making things worse.
Ep 326: Getting Automation Right
Recruiting Automation will be a topic we explore in a lot of detail over this coming year. The key to any automation strategy is removing friction in a way that saves time and resource but at the same time enhances the experience for candidates, recruiters and hiring managers.
Ep 306: World Class Talent Acquisition
As we move towards 2021, it's increasingly evident that a paradigm shift is taking place in talent acquisition. Forced remote hiring has added rocket fuel to technology adoption, and the deep recession is driving new strategic thinking around purpose, people and process.
Ep 304: The Employment Outlook
With many countries facing a second wave of COVID 19, taking a long term view on the outlook for work and employment is difficult. However, several months into this global crisis, crucial labour market trends are emerging, which will shape the future of talent acquisition.
Ep 302: Target Audience
I've been advocating for broader adoption of established digital marketing practices in recruitment marketing for a long time now. With many talent acquisition teams now having to deliver results with reduced resources, understanding targeting and measurement in marketing has arguably never been more important.
Ep 300: On the Frontline
A few months ago, the podcast passed 1 million downloads, and it feels fantastic to get to this next milestone of 300 episodes. A big thank you to everyone for all the support you give me, whether that's through listening, sponsoring or appearing on the show. This podcast would not exist without you, and I'm incredibly grateful.
Ep 297: Introvert Friendly Workplaces
Building inclusive workplaces that make everyone feel that they belong is something all employers should be focusing on. One topic that I don't hear talked about very often in our industry though is the difference in working styles between introverts and extraverts. So how can employers make sure their working practices, communication and talent acquisition strategies are working for everyone
Ep 294: Global Recruiting
One of the interesting debates in recent weeks has been whether the explosive growth in remote working will open up global pools of talent to employers in ways we've not seen before. Recruiting across borders can present many challenges, so what should employers be taking into account and planning for?
Ep 293: Recruiting Future Live
Last month we recorded a live version of the show as part of The Recruiting Automation Conference organised by recruiting tech vendor Wade and Wendy. The theme of this virtual conference was diversity and inclusion, and I was delighted to get to do another interview with recent podcast guest Anna Chalon Director or Recruiting and Diversity and Inclusion at Frame.io.
Ep 260: Dream Teams In A Remote World
One of the best business books I've read in the last few years is Dream Teams by Shane Snow. In the book, he analyses how the best teams become more than the sum of their parts, illustrating this with evidence from history, neuroscience, psychology and business.
The Digital Transformation Of Assessment
The changing nature of assessment is something we have covered from several different angles on this show before with contributions from both practitioners and consultants. However, to date, we haven't actually heard the vendor point of view in all of this. So with that in mind, my guest this week is Sam Whiteman, Head of Product Strategy at SHL.
Special Episode: Coronavirus outbreak
In light of events this week with the coronavirus pandemic, here is a special short episode to help the talent acquisition community get access to relevant information. I'm joined by Lars Schmidt, who is curating an information resource that everyone needs to be aware of.
Programmatic Advertising Explained
I have three guests on the show this week. Jon Hull, Head of Resourcing Delivery at Nationwide Building Society and Ben Gledhill, Head of TA at Yodel will be sharing their experiences as practitioners. I'm also joined by Rob Prince from Talent Nexus who will be acting as our programmatic expert and helping to demystify what is fast becoming a significant area of talent attraction.
I've been producing this podcast for five years, and I have to say that my guest in this episode, Balaji Ganapathy, is one of the most insightful people I've ever had on the show. Balaji is Global Head of Corporate Social Responsibility and Head of Workforce Effectiveness at Tata Consultancy Services, a company with 450,000 employees.
The Rise Of Talent Intelligence
My guest this week is Marlieke Pols, Talent Intelligence analyst at Philips. Marklieke recently authored a whitepaper that Phillips has published aimed at helping employers better appreciate the immense value of talent intelligence as a critical part of any talent acquisition strategy.
