Skills analysis: Unleashing the power of digital
Consultants often maintain that if you can’t measure it, you can’t improve it. This is particularly true in the area of skills. Management needs a detailed understanding of their company’s talent requirements if they want to know who to train in what skill, or who to recruit with what profile. This can be a particularly complex challenge in large organisations, and this is where digital solutions become indispensable. But what benefits do such solutions actually bring?
Core HR function: Anticipating skills requirements
The human resources discipline encompasses a wide variety of roles and responsibilities, all centred around the employee. These tasks span everything from recruitment, payroll and administration to strategic workforce planning and training. The number one purpose of HR, however, is to manage skills. This means ensuring that the company possesses the knowledge and expertise it needs not only to manage day-to-day business and contribute to the company’s success, but also to anticipate future talent requirements. This is particularly true in times of talent shortage. It is up to companies to equip themselves with the concepts and solutions needed to meet these challenges.
How do employee ambassador programs work?
To attract and retain the best talent, your employer brand must reflect your company culture and values – as actually experienced by your employees. But how do you convince candidates that your employer brand is genuine and true-to-life? Employee advocacy remains the most powerful channel. But you need the right digital tools and managerial support to leverage this valuable resource.

Quiet quitting – tragic and unnecessary
All of a sudden everybody is talking about "quiet quitting". Staff who choose to work no more than is absolutely necessary, doing only the bare minimum required and nothing more. It is in protest against not being promoted or acknowledged or not getting better paid, despite working around the clock, stepping up and taking responsibility.
Leading the next generation of employees
As labour markets strive to rebound from the impact of the pandemic, a historic talent shortage has emerged. Three out of every four companies globally have reported talent shortages and difficulty hiring – a 16-year high. Compounding this is “The Great Resignation”, driven by Gen Zs and millennials’ changing priorities, in many cases fuelled by the conditions of the lockdowns.
LinkedIn Live: Blueprint for keeping your organisation agile
Steve Goldberg, HCM research & advisory, and Jennifer Borun, senior director, analyst relations and strategic engagement, sat down on LinkedIn Live to discuss how to guide your organisation through solving future problems and succeeding in a volatile market.
How AI fights the demographic change
Today’s workforce is going through a rapid transformation. The universal five days in the office have given way to more remote and hybrid styles of working, the Great Resignation has seen mass job mobility, and companies are now competing for talent in a candidate-led market. In amongst all of this, accelerated by the pandemic, many of the baby boomer generation have been retiring earlier, as their priorities change. Although recently there has been an uptick in those considering re-joining the workforce due to immediate fears around the cost of living, according to the ONS, economic inactivity in those aged 50 to 64 has gone up over ten times since March 2020 – a seismic shift and a trend that cannot be ignored
