Ep 629: A Personalized Candidate Experience
Providing a quality candidate experience remains a significant challenge for many organizations. This challenge has been intensified in recent years by evolving candidate expectations, volatile talent markets, shrinking TA teams, and technology that has yet to be designed with the candidate in mind. However, are we on the cusp of an era when technology, rather than making the candidate experience worse, can actually help provide the high-quality, personalized candidate experience we have all been seeking? My guests this week are Luke Smith, Talent Acquisition & Experience Specialist at Toyota GB, and Euan Cameron, CEO at Willo. This discussion offers many great insights into what personalization is possible now and what will be possible in the future.

Ep 626: Taking A Strategic Approach To AI
Get my free whitepaper "10 Ways AI Will Transform Talent Acquisition" – Download Now  Trend Spotting – Find out how my digital course will help you shape the future of talent acquisition in your organization – Click Here It is becoming clear that company CEOs are taking AI very seriously, and it is starting to inform the strategic direction of many businesses. For example, 44% of CEOs responding to PwC's 2024 Annual Global CEOs survey believed that Gen AI will drive efficiency and boost profits in the next 12 months.  It is now critical that Talent Acquisition leaders take AI seriously and build strategies that closely align with their business's strategic direction. Unfortunately, in most cases, this isn't happening with the urgency that the situation requires. So, what are the barriers here? Do we fully understand the challenges, and what can TA leaders do to ensure they stay in step with the rest of their business? My guest this week is Paul Maxin. Paul is a highly experienced Global TA Leader who has worked at a diverse range of major public and private organizations. Paul firmly believes in the importance of approaching AI strategically with a sense of urgency and shares some pragmatic advice on how best to achieve this.  In the interview, we discuss: Why TA is out of step with the rest of the enterprise The challenges that stop TA from being strategic The importance of scenario planning Calls to action What questions should TA leaders be asking themselves? Data, measurement, and transparency Proving the strategic value of TA Auditing and the danger of AI being bias on steroids The continuing importance of the candidate experience An increasing risk of burnout What might the future hold?

Ep 625: What's Next For Generative AI?
The hype around the arrival of Gen AI was off-the-scale crazy. Now that things have calmed down and the use of LLMs is starting to normalize, it can be easy to think that the hype was overblown. However, we are about to see some developments in technology that will change our mindsets entirely and start to bridge the gap between the initial hype and our current reality. My guest this week is Jack Houghton, Co-Founder of Mindset AI. Mindset AI uses cutting-edge AI technology in the HR and Learning space.

Ep 624: The TA Team Of The Future
Much of the conversation about the future of talent acquisition focuses on absolutes. The questions debated revolve around whether there will actually be a need for talent acquisition in the future, whether robots will do all the recruiting, and whether most jobs will even still exist.  While these discussions are essential, they tend to polarize opinion and don't do much to move the industry forward. We need to have nuanced conversations about the practicalities of this transformation process and focus on the skills and roles that will drive the change we need. My guest this week is Andreea Lungulescu, Principal Talent Acquisition Partner at thermondo. Andreea strongly advocates for strategic talent acquisition and the importance of TA shaping its own destiny. She has done some significant work around the future roles talent acquisition will need and has some highly valuable insights to share In the interview, we discuss: Elevating the role of TA and making it strategic The importance of understanding rapidly changing business priorities How are employers responding to AI? The enthusiasm vs. implementation gap What are AI skills? Removing silos in the talent function Disrupting the traditional career framework in TA What TA roles might we see in the future?

However, companies can often make significant progress by taking small steps in important areas. The quality of the candidate's experience is the critical first step in an organization's inclusivity, and recent data indicates that quality has been dramatically deteriorating over the last 18 months. So, what practical and immediate steps can employers take to be more inclusive with their recruiting? My guest this week is Advita Patel from Comms Rebel. Advita is a communication and workplace culture strategist who helps organizations cultivate a culture of inclusion. In our conversation, she shares practical, pragmatic advice on how employers can build inclusive candidate experience by improving the quality of their communication.

EP 622: Redefining Expertise
It's been clear for a long time that the way we traditionally think about skills and expertise is out of step with our fast-changing and volatile world. This issue runs through the education system in many countries and also influences how employers attract and upskill talent. So, what are the innovative approaches that could solve this problem? My guest this week is Ed Fidoe, co-founder and CEO of the London Interdisciplinary School (LIS). LIS has been described as the most radical new university to open in decades. It offers degrees that use an interdisciplinary approach to solving some of the complex problems that business and society face. There are interesting lessons for employers here around the concept of interactional expertise. In the interview, we discuss: What is LIS, and why was it founded? Building networks of knowledge Connecting academic learning to the workplace Enhancing employability by addressing the current mismatch of expertise between college and the workplace Intellectual curiosity and problem-solving Cultivating diversity of thought through diversity of background The power of interactional expertise in the knowledge economy  What future skills will be needed in an AI-driven world?

Ep 621: Rain, Whisky and Robots
If you listened to the TA Leader interviews in Episode 619, you'd know that Recruiting Future recently collaborated with The Chad & Cheese podcast to host two face-to-face unconference-style events in Edinburgh and Glasgow. On the day between the two events, we decided to combine podcast recording with tourism. What better way to do this than to use a campervan as a mobile recording studio and drive around the southeast of Scotland, taking in some of its world-famous coastal views? Well, that was the plan anyway. Our plans took an unexpected turn as the weather had other ideas. But this led to some exciting impromptu discussions on AI and the future of work, sparked by a tour of a two-hundred-year-old whisky distillery, a flying visit to a seven-hundred-year-old castle, and a trip to the beach. In this episode, we discuss: Is the resume dead? What's going on with skills-based hiring The differences and similarities between talent acquisition in Scotland and talent acquisition in the US Attitudes to risk The tricky balance between robots and humans What does the long-term future look like Do we have the right attitude towards the future as an industry?

Ep 620: Hard Skills & Soft Skills
The shortening shelf life of skills, shifting business priorities, and the surge in AI-driven job applications are compelling many employers to rethink their candidate assessment and selection processes. This shift towards skills-based thinking is fostering greater integration between talent acquisition and talent management. By combining data on soft skills, hard skills, and career aspirations, employers can leverage a unified dataset to gain a comprehensive view throughout the entire employee lifecycle. So how can this be done, and what advantages can it bring? My guest this week is Jason Putnam, the CRO at Plum. Jason has been driving the charge around the scientific assessment of soft skills for a while and has recently incorporated data on hard skills into their methodology. Jason has some important insights to share on the future of assessment and the implementation of skills-based hiring. In the interview, we discuss: How the market is evolving The changing balance between talent acquisition and talent management TA's responsibility for retention Combining hard skills and soft skills Pace paradox versus business latency Focusing on the skills you need rather than the skills you have The evolution of the recruiting process Building alignment between talent acquisition, talent management, and hiring managers The importance of one universal dataset The role of AI Follow this podcast on Apple Podcasts.

Cancel Culture and Respectful Disagreement with Justin Jones-Fosu
The pendulum goes back-and-forth. In 2021, a survey was published that showed people had never been more afraid to speak their minds (a shocking 9 out of 10 people have felt emotionally or physically unsafe to speak their mind more than once in the past 18 months. Unsurprisingly, the conversation topics that have generated the most fear include political or social issues (74%) and COVID-19 issues (70%). It was the peak of MeToo and George Floyd cancel culture. Fast forward to today, and thought leaders from Professor Scott Galloway to James Carville are pushing back. It's a lot to digest. That's why we invited Justin Jones-Fosu, founder and CEO of Work. Meaningful. to the show. Author of the upcoming book "Respectfully Disagree," Justin and the boys cover a wide array of topics that many are afraid to bridge, but shouldn't be. If you've ever found yourself keeping quiet, instead of engaging, this is a must-listen. And if you speak your mind on every occasion to do so, it might just be for you too.

Ep 618: Breaking The Rainbow Ceiling
Currently, there are only four LGBTQ+ CEOs in the Fortune 500 and none in the FTSE 100. This really illustrates the hidden challenges and differences in professional opportunities for LGBTQ+ people, especially when it comes to promotion and recruitment into senior roles. Many employers publically say that improving diversity and inclusion in their workforce is a significant priority, but this will only truly happen with appropriate representation at the top of the organization. My guest this week is Layla McCay, Director of Policy at the NHS Confederation and author of a new book called "Breaking The Rainbow Ceiling." Layla shines a light on the challenges that LGBTQ+ people face at work and offers advice on how companies can recognize and address the barriers and build a more inclusive workplace where everyone can thrive and succeed. In the interview, we discuss: Why she wrote the book The barriers that prevent LGBTQ+ people from being hired or promoted into senior roles Roles models and self-esteem Conscious and unconscious bias Managers reinforcing imposter syndrome. Understanding different experiences Allowing people to do their best work Intersectionality Equity in talent management Advice to employers on inclusive hiring Follow this podcast on Apple Podcasts.
