  • AGS Takes QUANTUM Leap in the Workforce Acquisition Framework Space

    Oct 16, 2018, by Nikki Edwards

      Earlier this month, Allegis Global Solutions (AGS) launched the QUANTUM Platform™ to the U.S. market.  QUANTUM is a workforce acquisition (WA) framework comprising a total talent strategy, a sourcing methodology, and a technology platform all in one. 18 months in the making, the idea was initiated about a decade ago, as discussions began around the roadblocks associated wi[...]

  • Meet Ari & Mya, the Talent Acquisition Virtual Assistants

    May 31, 2018, by Nikki Edwards

    With increasing pressure on organizations to find the best hires, talent acquisition (TA) teams are continuing to grow. And as more Gen Zs are joining the workforce for the first time, so too are the latest generation of virtual assistants or chatbots. Here I look at the early careers and future prospects of Ari and Mya, two virtual assistants currently being used by TA vendors and corporate T[...]

  • Why Digital Onboarding is Essential

    Apr 27, 2018, by Nikki Edwards

      Is your organization already struggling to find the best talent? If so, put yourself in the shoes of a candidate for a moment. Take a look at your organization’s employer branding on your website and social media pages. Do you think candidates would be impressed? Hopefully yes, but many organizations’ employer branding leaves a lot to be desired. Appealing to all possi[...]

  • The Impact of VR & Gamification on Candidate Assessment

    Mar 28, 2018, by Nikki Edwards

      One of the things that was very clear from my visit to the UNLEASH HR industry event in London last week was that virtual reality and other interactive tech has arrived in the talent acquisition space in a big way. Here I look specifically at examples of how VR and gamification are having an impact on the candidate assessment process. Candidate assessment is one of the hot talent [...]

  • Collaboration is Key for Successful Talent Acquisition

    Feb 28, 2018, by Nikki Edwards

      Most organizations have probably struggled to find talent at some point, with some roles being particularly problematic to fill; cybersecurity being one recent example. Some organizations have applied desperate approaches to get hold of scarce talent, including hiking up new starter salaries (often at the detriment of those already in the wider team/breaching equal pay legislation), [...]

  • Next Generation RPO: Good Things Really Do Come in Small Packages

    Feb 02, 2018, by Nikki Edwards

      The RPO market has traditionally been dominated by vendors who were established in the U.S., the U.K., or Australia, the first countries to embrace the concept of RPO. The majority of their clients were large organizations headquartered in those regions, who typically had high-volume permanent hiring requirements, and as those organizations expanded internationally, the RPO vend[...]

  • The Wizardry of HR Platforms: 9¾ Examples from 2017!

    Dec 21, 2017, by Nikki Edwards

      2017 has seen HR service providers rethinking their approach to tech development based on latest developments in the wider market. Firstly, developments in platform-as-a-service (PaaS) solutions have been core to driving what appears to be a seamless integration of talent technology/tools stacks. Secondly, software developers have changed their approach, focusing on user experience a[...]

  • Five UNLEASHed HR Tech Ideas from HRTechWorld

    Oct 31, 2017, by Nikki Edwards

      Last week’s HRTechWorld in Amsterdam, or UNLEASH as it now known, did not disappoint, my only regret being that two days wasn’t enough time to see everything and meet everyone I wanted to. As well as the established vendors being present, sharing their new product updates, there were plenty of start-ups showing how they are changing the face of HR/payroll. Analytics, auto[...]

  • Hungry for Hungary? Why the Country’s Talent Feast is Attracting International Investment

    Sep 27, 2017, by Nikki Edwards

      I was privileged to be invited recently to a customer and analyst event in Budapest, Hungary hosted by Cielo. Great, I thought – I’ve never been there, maybe I’ll see the Danube and a few historic buildings. And from that perspective, Budapest did not disappoint; it was understandable why there were so many tourists visiting, enjoying the hot September weather. But [...]

  • Is the U.K. Gig Economy Over Hyped?

    Aug 30, 2017, by Nikki Edwards

      There has been much hype about the growth of the gig economy in the U.K., but when you take a closer look, is it really anything new? And how is it likely to grow and change over the next few years? According to the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), March 2017, gig workers are defined as those workers who ‘trade their time and skills through the intern[...]

  • Global Population Trends Require a Radical Rethink of Talent Acquisition Strategies

    Jul 20, 2017, by Nikki Edwards

    It is very easy to get caught up in the here and now of workplace challenges around talent acquisition (skills shortages, multigenerational workforce, ageing population, socio-economic issues, etc.), and the best way to tackle them in the short-term (this week, this month, this year). But what if a much wider look at the trends affecting talent acquisition were taken into consideration –[...]

  • How RPA & AI Are Taking Cielo’s TalentCloud to the Next Level

    Jun 01, 2017, by Nikki Edwards

    There is so much hype around RPA and AI technology that RPO, MSP, and Total Talent vendors could get carried away in the race to launch the latest RPA or AI technology feature at the expense of delivering excellent customer service.  Cielo has a more grounded approach to technology, suggesting that “Technology is only as valuable as the human experience it improves” and is [...]

  • How Consumerization of IT Can Transform HR

    Apr 28, 2017, by Nikki Edwards

      After attending a HR technology event, I always come back on a high having spent one or two days talking with positive people who are passionate about what they do in the HR tech space. HR tech continues to develop apace, and has become very user-friendly. Having spent most of my career in HR, I sometimes wonder whether the HR end-users in attendance are there to take a serio[...]

  • NelsonHall Takes Transformational Approach to the Role of the CFO

    Apr 01, 2017, by Nikki Edwards

    The nature of finance & accounting is changing rapidly with the advent of new technologies. RPA has already shown its potential to reduce transactional F&A costs by 20% while improving quality of service and the application of cognitive technologies over the next few years will multiply this existing impact several times over. And, with the advent of machine learning, the processes will in[...]

  • Handholding SMBs on their Digital HR Journey: How Moorepay is Driving U.K. Payroll Growth

    Organizations today are dealing with a myriad of inter-related market challenges: Political (Brexit uncertainty, European elections 2017-18, etc.) Economic (budget cut-backs, geographic/industry sector volatility, globalization, etc.) Social (talent shortages, multi-generational/ageing workforce, etc.) Technological (data/big data, analytics, “consumerization”, etc.), Leg[...]
