HR Happy Hour - Episode 53 - 'Re-thinking Talent' Thursday July 8, 2010 - 8pm EDT The long lasting and lingering economic recession, shifting workplace demographics, access to information and talent growing exponentially, and likely the final days of the traditional 'employee/employer' social contract are all conspiring to make locating, acquiring, and retaining the talent that organizations still need ever more challenging. The recession in particular is forcing a new generation of workers to think differently about work and nature of their future relationship with an employer, or more likely the many employers they are going to have in their working careers. Workers and candidates have been forced to adapt, but what about organizations? Are the organizations that need to have access to and support from ever more capable collections of talented staff doing enough to adapt themselves to this new environment? What approaches and strategies for talent acquisition make the most sense in a world where compensation, benefits, and long-term security can no longer be promised? Does traditional internal career pathing even make an impact on the modern employee that fully expects a short tenure at an organization? What organizations are today are changing and morphing the fastest and best to remain competitive and successful in their talent acquisition efforts? Joining us to talk about these issues will be Susan Burns from Talent Synchronicity and Jennifer McClure from Unbridled Talent (and hopefully you too).
