NAVIGATING A COMPETITIVE
The rise of instant gratification due to digital technology has changed the world around us. People operate their daily lives, expecting faster Internet speeds, overnight shipping and entertainment that will hold their attention span – deciding within moments whether a video or program is worth their time.
This “must-have-it-now” mentality has permeated everything in our lives – including how companies hire. As consumer gratification gets closer and closer to instant, individuals bring this mindset to the workplace as well and to suppliers of all types of services.
Couple this phenomenon with low unemployment rates, and suddenly, timeliness in talent acquisition becomes paramount, especially so the best candidates aren’t lost to competitors. This e-book examines the problems that exist with the old concept of “hire slow; fire fast” and provides solutions to remain competitive in a landscape of talent shortages.
