When CEO’s demand:
Revenue growth, Profit increase, Better talent
The Head of HR has to:
Hire faster, better, cheaper talent
Yesterday hiring talent was;
Let me sell you on a career at our company
Today hiring talent is:
let’s pull up a chair, have a coffee and chat about a career
Tomorrow’s engagement could be:
Build a community for entrepreneurs
The concept is to build talent communities which are cheaper to manage than regular employees, who can action on business problems immediately as they are agile ; who autonomously self manage their careers reducing your cost of talent.
With talent communities ( crowdsourcing) you can:
“ white label and auction your business problems to talent pools who compete to gain reward and recognition whilst solving your immediate requirements ; talent who are un-impaired by a corporate career mindset,”
Seven ways of building a great talent community are:
1. Create a socially interactive talent community, don’t have a oneway information send environment.
2. Reward your community with recognition opportunities, people work for respect as well as money so game your talent recognition.
3. Create free training using your corporate university, people manage their careers by constant upgrade of skills, so offer some free training to incentivise talent to join your community.
