HR Happy Hour 264 - Future Trends in Talent and Talent Acquisition Technology
Hosts: Steve Boese, Trish McFarlane
Guest: Kevin Wheeler, Founder, Future of Talent Institute
This week on the show, we welcome consultant, speaker, and thought leader Kevin Wheeler to the HR Happy Hour Show to talk about some of the big trends in talent and talent technology, and how it is so important for HR and talent leaders and professionals to keep dialed in to these trends to better prepare themselves and their organizations to successfully navigate the future.
Kevin shared some of his recent work and research on how large companies are dealing with the increased technology capabilities and the transfer to digital business models, and the continued emergence of the contingent or 'gig' economy. We also talked about the importance of images and imagery, and how technology and organizations should be re-assessing and re-committing themselves to more visual forms of communication.
Kevin also previewed his upcoming keynote at the Talent Acquisition Technology Conference, November 15-16 in Austin. Kevin will be talking about the ‘The Promise and Peril of Predictive Analytics’, and we talked about a few of the key challenges and considerations for HR and talent leaders who are considering adopting predictive technologies in talent acquisition.
We also spent some time talking about Amazon - quite possible the most interesting large company in the world.
