RECRUITING IN THE AGE OF GOOGLIZATION
It’s time for every business to “get its SHIFT together” and get a grip on reality. Tried and true recruiting practices aren’t working. Traditional jobs are disappearing, new job categories are emerging, and employment technologies are exploding. The competition for qualified workers is both terrifying and intensifying. The wired, tired, and technology are converging and yet many companies continue to recruit and screen talent like it was still 1970. Isn’t it time for human resources to SHIFT and get off the pot?

Unfortunately the accelerating change does not have an on-off button. You can’t press rewind either. During this keynote, Ira S Wolfe paints a vivid picture of future jobs, work, and the workplace where the machines are turning into the workers. A viable solution defies conventional wisdom as well as economic and workforce planning…and that’s where Ira’s fresh way of thinking and growth mindset captivates and motivates his audience to make change work for them.

“It is change, continuing change, inevitable change that is the dominant factor in society today. No sensible decision can be made any longer without taking into account not only the world as it is, but the world as it will be … This, in turn, means that our statesmen, our businessmen, our everyman must take on a science fictional way of thinking.”Isaac Asimov
“ We are walking from the pages of science fiction into the workplace.”Gary Mathiason
“Because of the explosive power of exponential growth, the 21st century will be equivalent to 20,000 years of progress at today’s rate of progress; organizations have to be able to redefine themselves at a faster and faster pace.”Ray Kurzweil
