The social and technological revolution that we are experiencing at the moment due to the use of technology has transformed the way of attracting talent in organizations. According to Christopher Dottie, CEO of Hays Spain, companies that are aware of the main trends in the market will attract the most talent. And among these trends, highlights the following three:

CONCILIATION AND LABOR FLEXIBILITY

“Work-life balance is a central topic of debate in any circle. And it is from many axes. This growing need to reconcile work and family life means that companies and employees also look for flexible models of hiring that reveal alternative labor relations that are beneficial for both parties. Prioritizing flexibility in work will change the relationship of the company with the worker. New forms of contracting will appear that will lead to an increase of the collaborators beyond the own staff and more options of teleworking that will promote a greater conciliation between professional and personal life of the employees.”

For this expert, this tendency is good for both parties, since “it acts like a talent magnet”. But it also causes uncertainty on both sides of the market. Therefore, “companies will be forced to propose new forms of management that can combine these contractual models, while employees may come to fear for their stability.”

THE TECHNOLOGY AS CATALYST

“Hyperconnectivity, because of the facilities provided by technology, leads to an inevitable overlap between personal and professional life. Nowadays, consulting social networks during work hours or sending work emails from home is standard practice in the daily life of any employee. ” For Dottie “this can be a” double-edged sword “that companies and workers should” from mutual trust. In order for the relationship to be equitable and satisfactory for both parties, companies must stop focusing on the time invested and start doing it in the results achieved. “

THE END OF LINEAR RACES

And the triumph of the multifaceted. “The notion of change in the business structure has made the accent put in the need to take into account the laterality of the relationships. We are probably facing the end of linear races and veteran teams are becoming obsolete, adopting models that reduce extended stays in the same organization. “

This challenge, according to Chris Dottie, “responds to a growing demand for stimulation and personal development by employees; it requires lateral transfers, internal training, onboarding, innovation and the admission of new ways of thinking to be able to retain the best talent “. In turn, “the company needs to invest in the formation of its staff so that their careers are adapted to what the reality of the companies demands and, for the time being, they are not provided by academic institutions.”
