The Global Picture: The Employee's View of Life at Work
We asked — employees worldwide responded. How do they view
their workplaces today, what do they need to perform better, what
skills do they see necessary for their future positions, and what can
businesses do to meet their expectations for the future? This global
study surveyed 5446 professional employees on their views of their
life at work and how it may be improved.
Generational Talent Trends Across the Globe: One Size Doesn't Fit All
Employees of all generations are demanding a new value proposition that provides greater career support combined with new flexibility in managing their work and building their skills. At the centre of the new work equation are employees who are looking for more personalized career experiences that bolster current skills and develop new capabilities — all within an environment saturated with meaningful work and growth opportunities.
Global Perspective on Talent Trends
The world of work has been experiencing seismic shifts: the composition of the workforce, the skills that drive business performance, and the talent pools that will likely fuel future growth. Organisations need to look at talent and its development through a new lens — examining traditional concepts about the nature of work, what constitutes employment, and the ingredients for creating a thriving workforce.
Going Social for Talent Acquisition
Social networks support the creation of talent pools by providing free features to individuals and often charging companies to access them. These networks are increasingly used for candidate sourcing and as they proliferate, their numbers can overwhelm recruiters.
The Journey to Digital HR — What Research Tells Us About Implementing a New HRIS
Major software implementations — such as replacing a Human Resource Information System (HRIS) or deploying new Human Capital Management (HCM) software for the first time — are far from trivial. New software requires careful budgeting of both financial and people resources, and can disrupt day-to-day operations. Software deployment impacts short-term productivity, and requires detailed project management, careful change management and thorough training to mitigate risks.
Making Sense of the Maze: Talent Acquisition Technologies
Competition for skilled talent is hot — and increasingly challenging across the globe. Solutions — often from young innovative companies — hit the market almost daily it seems, but how are recruiters, hiring managers, and HR professionals looking for new software solutions to ascertain which solutions make sense for them?
Recruiting in the "Free Agent" Nation: the Rise of the Contigent Workforce
Whether contingent by choice or necessity, these workers now make up a significant proportion of the talent pool. Their large and growing place in the labour market creates an additional challenge for recruiters: how do I find the elusive talent set I need — especially if it may be on a short-term or temporary basis?
Rewarding the Risk Preventers: Getting Cyberstaffing Right
Cyberattacks loom as an ever-present threat to today's businesses across the globe. Lloyds of London recently estimated that cyberattacks were costing businesses $400 billion.1 The average costs of data breaches are increasing, moving up from US$3.79 to US$4 million per incident, according to recently conducted research by IBM and the Ponemon Institute.
Risky Business: Protecting Data in Today's Hacker-Prone World
The most recent Global Risks report ranks cyberattacks as one of the top 10 risks most likely to cause a global crisis. While the press devotes more attention to external hackers, internal treats also occur. These breeches may occur accidentally, because employees are unaware or negligent. Explore the steps that companies can take to mitigate against internal cyber risks.
Software, Security, and the Cloud: What Vendors Provide to Their Customers
Technology providers are alert to the ever-present danger of hackers and security breaches. They build in varying degrees of security into their products. Our recent study looked at the security features vendors provide in their HRIS products and more tellingly, whether these features were presented to their customers as required or as options on which they had a choice.
Vendors Can Help: Preventing HRIS Cyber Breaches
In the computing environment of the early Cloud days, organisations worried about the security of their data. Together the HCM vendor community has largely alleviated that fear. Today, however, organisations face a new fear — the fear of cybersecurity attacks into a businesses' private computerised data.
