Recruiting for Roles of the Future

It is now agiven that many roles in the near-future don’t yet exist, which begs the question on how to plan the hiring of these roles and potential skillset that comes with it? We spoke with Peter Byrne from the giant that is Google and delved into this fascinating topic, that is specifically highlighted within the tech industry.

We recently partnered with Indeed to speak with some influential Talent Acquisition Teams, delving into some of the key challenges, opportunities and key trends to be aware of in 2020, specifically surrounding Talent Attraction, Retention, and Upskilling.

Recruiting for the future not only means strategising for roles that are yet to come into existence, it also means preparing your existing workforce and upskilling them in a way that will prepare them for the unknown. A key concern in any organisation is losing knowledge and insight, but Peter highlighted the extensive training Google has to offer, as a way of providing individuals with skills that wouldn’t normally be within their day-to-day role. Giving your employees the ability to learn, whatever skillset they fancy, is a sure fire way to keep them engaged, connected, and hopefully at the company!
