The Future of Work
This week’s guest blogger, Chris Gootherts, Founder and President of International Talent Recruitment, postulates, “You have already declined the candidates that could have filled all your needs.” In this post, Chris uses his experience at Microsoft, Apple, and Amazon to explore causes of unfilled positions in tech, and builds his case for what recruiters need to do with the allegory of the elephant and the blind men.
“I no longer saw four generations beholden to their stereotypes, but a communication divide that was digital, not generational.” Guest blogger Chris Kurtz, Founder and Principal Consultant at PeerThru, discusses this digital divide, his approaches to communication, and his action plan.
“Talent Acquisition has a drastic need for increased innovation, education, and a general push for ideation. Unfortunately, it seems tactical execution and order taking is our natural disposition.” Guest blogger Marie Burns discusses the need for innovation and the trends that present opportunities for that innovation.
