ERUPT: Adapt and Thrive


On 20th August, as part of our ERUPT event series, The BTN hosted an interesting virtual panel session on adapting and thriving in the current climate.

ERUPT: Adapt and Thrive gathered HR and Technology professionals to engage, network and share thoughts around the topic of ‘Adapt and Thrive’.

Our panel (shown below) discusses a variety of questions presented by the host, whilst also taking on some questions that our attendees were posing on the virtual event platform.

The panel started by looking at the learnings they have all taken from the past few months, considering aspects like resilience, collaboration and the sudden nature of which many organisations moved remote, alongside much more.

The concept of the event, adapt and thrive is integral to companies at the moment as agility and crisis response has become a major focus for most, if not all, organisations in the current climate. The conversation was driven around the talent acquisition agenda looking at how people worked, led and drove productivity remotely, whilst also considering the impact on hiring, headcount and the mission for HR and talent acquisition of reinvention.

From here panel focused on skills and the skills gap, looking at how the talent acquisition can embrace and harvest this, by mapping skills successfully, whilst also looking at the best way to coach and train your people's skills to then allow your people to be 'self-fulfilling'.

Our panellist explored a variety of topics, with a large focus on talent acquisition, skills, organisational culture, Employee Value Proposition (EVP) and communication, emphasising how this is associated with long-term success for your organisation and people.

Our panel also considered the nature of customer experience and customer focus within organisations post-COVID, and how the customer for talent acquisition (being candidates and internal stakeholders) is entirely different, meaning that a 'customer focus' is internally driven for talent acquisition, instead of being externally focused.
