The Talent Marketplace
We have seen the emergence now of the Talent Marketplace as a validated category in the Talent Management arena. Even Gartner and Josh Bersin have now written and spoken about it. Global companies are starting to track their recruiting metrics more closely than ever.
The percentage of positions filled internally is one metric. Even the number of movements horizontal vs vertical as another trending metric in organizations measurement of internal talent mobility. We believe, increasingly, we will be tracking the number of projects and capability matches of those projects.
More than ever, recruiters need to think of themselves as part of the contingent workforce of their clients. True business partners who support their clients with these emerging new talent market dynamics and with great talent intelligence tools to support this new era.
Organizations that are fair, transparent, inclusive, respectful of their people are the ones who will thrive in the future. We need a more human/humane work experience, and the time is now.
Talent practices will need to be better than they were last decade. More human; people-centric; intelligent, more robust in their skills and capability matching; more learning and growth-oriented, more enabling, and better able to deliver the talent optimization that organizations will need in the coming decade.
The time is here for this new era in the Talent Experience, and Talent Enablement Systems are here. We’ve been waiting for this moment. Bring it on!
