People's changing relationship to work

People are looking for more meaningful relationships and this does not stop at work. Potential candidates want to understand the purpose behind their role. And employers like you want to hire the best available talent today, who also have the potential to grow with your business. How can you make this happen?

Valuing people's soft skills


Candidate lists should reflect the real world and its diversity. To help this, recruiting should focus on personalities and behaviours with future potential, in addition to the technical skills you need today. This will create greater market flexibility, improve candidate mobility and help make workplaces more representative.

Talent attracts talented people

By understanding what matters to and motivates employees, you can improve the way your company works. How? Both parties need to understand each other’s needs and seek to satisfy each other’s expectations. The best way to do this is through genuine conversations that reflect real-life expectations of work and the world.
