    It's becoming increasingly clear to me from the conversations I'm having with talent acquisition professionals worldwide that what happens in the coming months will set a course for a wholesale transformation of our industry. Talent markets are changing, technology is changing, employers are changing, and the very nature of work itself is changing.

Joe has some very strong and very well informed opinions on what the future looks like for talent acquisition.

    Automation & Candidate Experience

    Automation & Candidate Experience

    As the adoption and sophistication of recruiting automation gather pace, it's essential to understand its constituent parts and the advantages and disadvantages of automating specific recruiting processes.

    One area of the recruiting experience that doesn't get much attention is interview scheduling. A recently published research report from Cronofy has shed new light on the impact interview scheduling has on the candidate experience. I wanted to explore this in more detail.

    With that in mind, this episode has a bit of a different format. My first guest is Adam Bird, CEO Cronofy, to talk us through the report's findings. I then expand out the conversation and bring in talent acquisition leaders Izzy Hung, Global Executive Hiring Lead at Forgerock and Ben Gledhill, Head of Resourcing at Thames Water, to get their thoughts on interview scheduling and recruiting automation in general.

    In the conversation, we discuss:

       ▪   The report's methodology and key findings

       ▪   The impact of a poor interview scheduling experience on candidate decision making

       ▪   Does automation work for all levels of recruiting?

       ▪   The impact of the pandemic

       ▪   Candidate feedback

       ▪   Using technology to facilitate workflows

       ▪   Technical integration

       ▪   Driving differentiation through tech stacks

       ▪   The future for recruiting automation

    Diversity and Disability

    Back in Episode 335, I published an interview where we talked about Neurodiversity in the workplace. The episode generated a lot of interest, and many organisations got in touch with me to share their stories. One that really stood out was a non-profit called Creative Spirit, which helps create integrated employment opportunities for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

    Creative Spirit is doing some vital work, and I'm delighted that their Co-Founder Laurel Rossi joins me as my guest this week.

    In the interview, we discuss:

       ▪   Creative Spirit's backstory and purpose

       ▪   Being a genuinely inclusive employer and how the pandemic is changing everything

       ▪   Busting the myths about employment for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities

       ▪   Success stories and shout outs

       ▪   Advice to Talent Acquisition Leaders

       ▪   How to get involved with Creative Spirit

    Change Management & Adoption

    Change Management & Adoption

    The growth in adoption of Recruiting Technology is continuing to speed up exponentially. There is always a lot of focus on the types of software companies should be buying but often not as much focus on the amount of internal change management involved to make the technology work within the organization. So what how should companies be thinking about this, and what kind of strategies should they be building?

    My guest this week is someone who helps to design change management and adoption strategies on a daily basis. Jen Wilks is VP of Professional Services at Eightfold Ai and has a tremendous amount of knowledge and experience to share on what makes technology implementations successful.

    In the interview, we discuss:

       ▪   Why change management is so important in software implementation

       ▪   Achieving executive buy-in

       ▪   Pilots and early wins

       ▪   Common pitfalls and mistakes

       ▪   Communication strategies

       ▪   Adoption Planning

       ▪   Gamification

       ▪   Outcomes and success criteria
