    Ep 256: CEOs And Talent Acquisition

    Ep 256: CEOs And Talent Acquisition

    A significant issue that I see time and time again is the disconnect between what CEOs say they want from talent acquisition and what is delivered. Why does this disconnect happen, and what can talent acquisition leaders do to fix it?
    To help answer this vitally important question I'm delighted to welcome Jerome Ternynck, CEO of SmartRecruiters back to the show. Jerome has recently written a book on Hiring Success which is aimed at CEOs and illustrates what they need do to compete effectively for the best talent.
    In the interview, we discuss:
    • What is currently happening in the market and how SmartRecruiters are responding as a company
    • The disconnect between what CEOs want from hiring and how talent acquisition is measured
    • What does an enterprise need to do to acquire top talent on demand
    • What should the main focus be for talent acquisition to drive change
    • Rethinking hiring budgets
    • AI bias versus human bias
    • The future of talent acquisition

    To recap, I'm currently mixing content between topics that are relevant to the right now and topics that are important in the medium to long term. This episode is a right now episode.

What feels like an infinitely long two weeks later, my guest in this episode is Holly Fawcett from SocialTalent to give us an update on what they are seeing in the market right now.
    In the interview, we discuss:
    • What is going on in the hiring market right now
    • The supply of talent
    • Adaption to virtual hiring
    • Dealing with change-resistant hiring managers
    • Talent acquisition as a leadership enablement function

    Ep 253: Remote Working - A CEO's Perspective

    Contact: matt@metashift.co.uk
    With everything that has happened in the last few weeks (just to timestamp this I'm recording on March 31st 2020) there is understandably already a massive amount of content being released and discussion going on about remote working. I wanted to add some value rather than some noise to all of this, so I've invited back one of my former guests to give us a CEO's perspective on remote working.
    Wiktor Schmidt is Executive Chairman & Co-founder of Netguru, a company that has always had a remote-first operating model for its employees. Wiktor has a tremendous amount of experience leading remote teams and has some valuable insights to share.
    In the interview, we discuss:
    • What is a remote-first organisation?
    • The difference between choosing to work from home and being forced to work from home and the implications for leadership
    • Maintaining culture remotely
    • The vital importance of trust
    • Keeping a remote team motivated and productive
    • Digital leadership
    • Future equality of opportunity for remote workers

    Contact: matt@metashift.co.uk
    As we continue to move through extremely troubled and confusing times, I decided it would be good to have an episode about happiness.

Nic also shares a lot of practical advice on how leaders can help improve the happiness of their teams in our current challenging times.
    In the interview, we discuss:
    • What does happiness actual mean
    • The benefits of happiness at work
    • Applying statistical thinking to measure happiness
    • What can leaders be doing in the current crisis to improve the happiness of their teams
    • The five main drivers of happiness at work

    Ep 251: The Digital Transformation Of Assessment

    Ep 251: The Digital Transformation Of Assessment

    Contact: matt@metashift.co.uk
    The changing nature of assessment is something we have covered from several different angles on this show before with contributions from both practitioners and consultants. However, to date, we haven't actually heard the vendor point of view in all of this. So with that in mind, my guest this week is Sam Whiteman, Head of Product Strategy at SHL.
    In the interview, we discuss:
    • How technology has evolved assessment over time
    • Using AI as a capability to drive specific outcomes
    • How AI can be used to find hidden gems in the candidate pool
    • The evolution of video interviewing
    • Giving candidates more value by building an interactive assessment experience
    • The importance of people and machines working together to be better
    • The problem of algorithmic bias and how to avoid it
    • The future of assessment
