When Steve Jobs launched the iPhone in 2007 people were stunned. Three mobile devices in one. Nobody had done that before. The mobile phone makers were caught out big time. Many people thought it was too good to be true. Others were impressed. Finally, someone had produced just what they’d been waiting for! Then it wasn’t long before everyone wanted a touch-screen smart phone. Today, smart phones are a part of daily life and it looks strange to see someone using a traditional mobile device.
The iPhone is just one of a plethora of ways in which traditional industries and practices have been disrupted and overturned in the past 10 years. And, it’s set to continue affecting how many of us live and work on a frequently occurring basis.
Fast forward to today and to the world of Talent Management. Organisations continue to rely on outdated practices in how they hire, retain and develop their people. Surely not, you might be saying to yourself!?
Worse still, in an attempt to “modernise” HR practices they’ve invested in sexy looking software that promises to do everything. As thought leader on Talent Josh Bersin remarked in one of his recent reports, in some cases users are still trying to figure out what to do with the software. That strikes me as a bit like putting the cart before the horse!
LinkedIn’s 2015 Global Recruiting Trends report found that improving candidate and job matching was the top trend that will affect how recruiting is done over the next five years.
