    Contact: matt@metashift.co.uk
    Content marketing and its critical role in recruitment marketing and employer branding is a topic very close to my heart and something we have covered many times on the podcast. One of the most challenging aspects for any talent acquisition content strategy is often generating the content itself. So how can employers be effective at content marketing in a time of shrinking budgets and smaller teams?
    My guest this week is Anthony Jones, Global Head of Talent Brand at Rockwell Automation. Over the last two years, Anthony has built in house content creation and digital marketing capability to address Rockwell Automation's recruiting challenges. He has some excellent insights and advice to share.
    In the interview, we discuss:
    • The recruiting challenges at Rockwell Automation
    • The approach to Talent Branding
    • Standing out in the places that matter by using content to get attention.
    • Building capability to produce unique content
    • The importance of specialists in talent acquisition and the key skills required
    • Types of content and the importance of doing things differently
    • Why authenticity is critical
    • The role of technology

    Ep 281: Skills, Mobility and AI

    Ep 281: Skills, Mobility and AI

    We are currently living through a period of time where assessment that's based on skills and potential has never been more critical. As the economic crisis plays out, employers need to understand the skills base within their workforces to drive mobility and enable redeployment. At the same time, correctly understanding the transferable skills of available talent will help companies make some fantastic hires.
    Unfortunately, though recruiting is still dominated by a reliance on resumes and other outdated practices. So how might this be changed and how can technology help to drive our industry forward.
    My guest this week is Todd Raphael from Eightfold. Todd has been studying and writing about the talent acquisition for over 20 years and has some great insights to share about skills-based recruiting.
    In the interview, we discuss:
    • The most significant developments in talent acquisition in the last ten years
    • Outdated recruiting methods
    • The benefits of skilled, focused hiring
    • Transferable skills in an economic crisis
    • Redeployment to prevent layoffs
    • The role of AI
    • Innovating to improve internal mobility
    • Mitigating bias
    • The future potential of intelligent automation

    Ep 280: Great Employers

    Contact: matt@metashift.co.uk
    Over the past ten years, I've been on judging panels for many different industry awards. This is something that has really helped me appreciate the role business awards play in driving our industry forward by showcasing and celebrating great work.
    That's the reason I'm working with the Stevies to promote their awards for Great Employers. To tell us more about the categories and the judging my guest this week is Michael Gallagher, Executive Chairman and Founder of The Stevie Awards.
    Michael also talks about the reason he set up the Stevie Awards for Great Employers, discusses some of the previous winners and shares details about the special awards they have introduced to recognise HR's response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

I was looking for a podcast which would help broaden my knowledge and understanding of what is happening in the recruitment tech market. This Podcast achieves this whilst talking about some very interesting/current topics, whilst getting view points of executive members of the recruitment technology sector. If you want any of the above this Podcast is a must listen! Thank you for the Podcast so far Matt, keep up the good work.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I don't work in HR or recruitment directly, but having recently undertaken a project looking at intern hires for the team I work in, Matt's podcast has been invaluable.

The podcast is full of informative, relevant and actionable insight from industry leaders.

More of a sales pitch than a podcast

Was hoping to hear ideas and thoughts on recruitment whether that be agency or in-house.
Just seems to be a lot of different recruitment servicing companies pitching their product.
It has some interesting concepts and ideas but just not enough to keep me engaged.
