The future came too fast for HR. Routine, every-day events are quickly taking on a very futuristic route. Things that seemed impossible are now mainstream. Talent acquisition is no exception and yet many organizations continue to recruit like it was 1970. Consequently, top talent just “swipes left” in mind-numbing fashion. To win the race for talent, every expert agrees the future of HR depends on its ability to deliver an awesome candidate experience, from your career site to the job offer. During this presentation Recruiting in the Age of Googlization author/speaker Ira S Wolfe will guide you on a candidate’s job search, share modern candidate decision behaviors, and provide tips and insights on how to align recruitment with candidates, and ultimately convert more qualified job seekers to new hires.

Humans Need Not Apply

HR Meets Future Shock

50 years ago Alvin Toffler warned us about Future Shock, a time when “too much change in too short a period of time” would leave us overwhelmed, disconnected, and suffering from shattering stress and disorientation. Just 20 years ago, Future of Work Global Thought Leader warned us about the Perfect Labor Storm. Now here we are – technology is blurring the lines between science fiction and reality. The tsunami of change facing HR can be paralyzing. How prepared are you and your employees to work with and supervise an algorithm, to manage a hybrid workforce, to recruit and retain employees in a gig economy?
