If you’re a talent acquisition (TA) leader for a big shop, I’m guessing my life is better than yours! Why do I know this? Because the technology you’re being asked to use has completely passed you by on the side of the highway!
In mid-October, 15,000 people gathered in Houston for the Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing (GHC).
Recruiters are always chasing the new shiny objects, and with good reason. Talent management—and specifically the talent acquisition ecosystem—is a constantly evolving model and, much like Charles Darwin’s survival of the fittest theory, those who adapt to its changing landscape (and its new shiny objects) will have the best chance for survival.
The 2016 HR Technology Conference & Exposition will be held in Chicago from October 4-7 and I’m excited to return as a member of the 2016 HR Tech Insiders blogger team.

According to a paper by Gartner, businesses need to now look at their world though a digital lens. This means that businesses need to look at people and things in a different way to maximize and better understand the opportunities that are available. I think this can be applied to employees as well.
Next week at am participating at IBM Insight on an influencer panel. One of the areas we will be addressing is the future of mobile and its importance to HR. In preparation for that I happened to come across a paper from Bersin by Deloitte on 10 big disruptions on the horizon for HR. One of these areas is in HR’s use of mobile applications.
It’s a rarity in life to be able to gather with others who share a common cause, and be inspired for almost every minute of every day together. To do so with 12,000 people over 3 days is unheard of. Except when it comes to the Anita Borg Institute’s Grace Hopper Celebration of Women in Computing.
