It is both exciting and challenging to be a talent acquisition head or hiring manager today. Both the demand and the playground for innovation here are, now, unprecedented. On the one hand, one has a new spectrum of expectations of talent from the workplace. There is an unrelenting emphasis on fairness, respect, speed, purpose, goal alignment, and D&I (Diversity and Inclusion) areas. The talent wants to be hired for the right reasons and without wasting time on unnecessary red tape. They also want to know more about how their journeys affect and get involved in their strategic journey. On the other hand, CXOs want HR to be fast, ROI-centric, and swift in supplying talent in a consistent, agile, and real-time way. Now, don’t the two sides seem quite a balancing act for HR?
New Expectations, Old Constraints
For instance, recall how nearly two-thirds of US-based employees in a McKinsey survey have said that pandemic has caused them to reflect on their purpose in life. And almost half said that they are reconsidering the kind of work they do because of the pandemic. Moreover, millennials were three times more likely than others to say that they were re-evaluating work.
