The 5 crucial characteristics of a new world organization

Changing market conditions, the impact of technology, and the differing expectations of five generations in the workplace at once have contributed to a huge change in organizations across the world.

As a result, they’ve emerged flatter, more agile, and bound by a common purpose. Employee empowerment and collaboration is becoming the norm.

5 things that make a truly great leader

5 things that make a truly great leader

The old-fashioned view of leadership is that a great leader will achieve success wherever they go. Successful leaders have a certain set of skills and attributes, and therefore they'll be able to take them anywhere and get results. Attributes like extroversion, charisma, and the power of persuasion. But the truth is, in the new world of work, what it takes to be a leader has changed dramatically.

Great leadership isn't about one set of skills or strengths. Today, great leadership is dependent on five key elements...

 
 
 

5 habits that are preventing you from reaching your leadership potential

5 habits that are preventing you from reaching your leadership potential

Traditional leadership is all about capitalizing on certain strengths. "Focus on what you do best and surround yourself with people who have complementary strengths," is the traditional leadership philosophy.

But in recent years, a lot of leadership theory has started to consider the flipside of this belief. In other words, when it comes to strengths, you can sometimes have too much of a good thing. It could even be the reason you're not reaching own potential as a leader.

Here are five ways overused strengths could derail your potential in the workplace...

 
 
 

Think you’re underpaid? Five things to consider before calling it quits

Think you’re underpaid? Five things to consider before calling it quits

Are you feeling underpaid and undervalued at work? Before you go and look for a higher-paying job, you need to consider a couple of things: the market rate for your role, and what the real problem might be for your workplaces woes.

Understanding salary

As you ponder your next move, it’s crucial to understand how a pay raise works.

Often, people assume that their pay should increase every year that they stay at an organization. However, unless there is a bonus program or a special arrangement in place, a salary is often worked out as the confluence of three things: the market; your performance and business performance.

 
 
 

Three kinds of emerging HR tech ideas: which one will be the most disruptive?

Three kinds of emerging HR tech ideas: which one will be the most disruptive?

As business leaders, we’re used to making data-driven decisions in every facet of our organizations, except, perhaps, for our people.

While the world of work is changing rapidly, there are still aspects where organizations generally do things the way they’ve always been done, such as the way they find candidates for roles, select new hires, and identify and develop top performers.

Largely I think this is because businesses still struggle to accurately measure people. And that leaves the HR and recruitment sectors ripe for disruption.

 
 
 

U.S. Job Market: The Midyear Employment Outlook

U.S. Job Market: The Midyear Employment Outlook

The U.S. job market experienced solid growth in April following unexpectedly weak job growth in March. Because of the quick and strong rebound, the March dip is believed to have been weather-related. The national unemployment rate dropped to 4.4 percent; its lowest point in a decade. Economists say indicators point toward steady job growth in the coming months.1

The U.S. job market gained 211,000 new jobs in April, which was higher than the 185,000 jobs predicted, and a significant bump up from the 79,000 jobs gained in March.2 Despite the low numbers in March, economists say job growth in the first quarter of 2017 is outpacing expectations.

If your organization is about to embark on a new candidate search, there's probably already a long list of things you have to think about.

Social Media Recruiting: Get Creative for Effective Hiring

Social Media Recruiting: Get Creative for Effective Hiring

Recruiters’ use of social media to attract candidates has grown rapidly in the past few years. In a 2016 study, the Society for Human Resource Management found 84 percent of organizations surveyed used social media recruiting, with an additional 9 percent planning to use it.1 But this widespread adoption of social media in recruiting has caused a problem: talent inundated with job postings on their timelines and feeds. The flood of open positions is so great, many candidates simply scroll right past what could be the perfect job.

It’s no longer enough to simply use social media. Recruiting on these platforms must be targeted and creative in order to reach top candidates and capture their attention so they’ll click through to that job posting.
