The workplace is converging, and so are future skill and talent requirements. Today, the auto industry is hiring more electrical and 3D printing engineers than hardcore manufacturing or mechanical engineers. Google is strengthening hardware capabilities further – recently paying $1.1B to acquire 2,000 HTC engineers. Irrespective of the industry and size, Business Intelligence and cloud skills are becoming a norm. It’s a new world with new rules. What does this agile business environment mean for Human Resources?

Recruiting trends more often than not slip out from my circle of interest. To be vocally self-critical, I find myself either skimming over these or straight out ignoring them.

It intrigued me not because of the smart machine-learning trained algorithms (that has been around long enough) but because when Google gets involved, things change.
Thank you to everyone that attended our latest specialist HRTN Reward event, chaired by Jeff Bakes, Reward Director at PwC. These are the thoughts taken from that event, held at the Haymarket Hotel on Thursday 7th November.
