These years we are witnessing a shift in the job market. We designed prodii for a future of “distributed recruitment” and empowered employees.
The rate of change has accelerated while the usual channels of talent and skills in demand are drying out. Contingent, contract, and part-time workers make up almost one-third of the workforce. Employee churn will rise and so will the demand for agile talent-pipelines and tools reducing time to hire. The pace of change in business requires organisations to be more agile and figure out how to embrace a new approach of “digital HR.”
A new social contract is developing between companies and workers, driving major changes in the employer/employee relationship. Millennials make up more than half the workforce and they anticipate working for many employers and demand an enriching experience at every stage. This leads to expectations for rapid career growth, a compelling and flexible workplace, and a sense of mission and purpose at work.
The empowerment of the employee. The faster pace on the jobmarket means the demand for certain skills pass the upper hand to the employee. Especially those with a good reputation and quality followers in their virtual communities. They will soon become an important ressource for new hires.
