In our latest survey report, we explore the growth challenges facing businesses and HR leaders in a rapidly changing landscape.
We surveyed over 500 HR leaders in leading organisations to explore their views on these challenges, and to find out how they are supporting people and leveraging people data to help them achieve their growth goals.
The survey revealed that:
• It’s the war for talent, again. The greatest challenges for growing companies are winning the war for talent, growing productivity and improving workforce visibility.
• Fast-growth companies share common traits in the way they manage and engage their people—we call this being a People Company.
• There’s a disconnect between managers and employees in terms of what being a People Company means.
• Becoming a People Company is a journey, with many organisations some way from embracing all aspects.
• People Science is a thing: there’s an appetite to leverage people data and analytics, but there are blockers in the way.
The more you know about your people, the more you can enable them to do their best work. And in turn, the greater the chance of business success. Yet, a rapidly changing world of work makes it difficult for companies to achieve this. There is a growing global skills crisis, and it’s getting worse. A shortage of skilled people makes it tough to find and attract the people you need — and it’s even tougher to get them through the door once you find them. To win the war for talent, you need to understand and engage with your candidates better than ever before.
A growing business is usually a good thing, but for talent acquisition teams, growth on a large scale can pose some unique recruiting challenges. That’s because rapid expansion can confront talent acquisition with the need to ensure that as the company grows, quality of hire doesn’t shrink.
The retail market is growing, presenting employees with more opportunities to find jobs that provide training, development and career progression-something today’s workforce demands. With improvement in the retail sector comes increased pressure to win the war for talent. This three-step checklist will help you identify your talent management strengths and weaknesses so you can recruit and retain the best people.

Build or buy? When manufacturers have sought new leaders, they have typically done both: grooming talent in-house and paying market rates for the best thinkers and managers.
With the growing STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) shortage, companies will be harder-pressed to buy – and keep – top technical talent. Emerging and established leaders will command premium prices and field continual offers, increasing the likelihood they’ll make frequent job changes, taking their industry and institutional knowledge with them. As a consequence, manufacturers will need to build their talent pipeline, empower knowledge workers with the tools and intelligence they need to succeed, and provide professional development opportunities that exceed what competitors offer.
This will be a marathon, not a sprint. What’s key to making the race for talent successful: virtual training environments that accelerate learning and innovation.
Growing organizations have different hiring needs than companies in low growth mode. Companies that plan to grow must consider their recruitment technology and how it will impact their ability to scale. When businesses start to expand, they are often required to change many of their recruiting and talent acquisition practices. Typically, emerging companies find themselves unprepared when it comes to increasing workforce changes. The solution: Implementing Talent Acquisition Software to streamline all hiring needs.

It’s been a long road to recovery, but the economy is finally bouncing back after the Great Recession. Businesses are growing, companies are hiring and quality talent is in high demand. For the skilled worker, the job market has shifted in their favor, and professionals everywhere are taking advantage. The findings of the fifth annual Job Seeker Nation Study explore the progression of the job market, the modern job seeker’s approach to job hunting, and what this means for the workforce in 2015. Read this study to learn more.
Finding and retaining great talent today is challenging. Not only do Millennials expect more from employers, they expect more from their careers. The growing talent shortage is nothing to sneeze at either: in 2016, 68% of surveyed HR professionals found it difficult to fill full-time positions. Finally, there’s the shocking skills shortage: 84% of HR professionals reported seeing applied skill deficits (such as problem-solving skills) in candidates in the past 12 months.
