"Over the next five years, 90%of jobs will be created in emerging and developing countries" says ILO

"Over the next five years, 90%of jobs will be created in emerging and developing countries" says ILO | Recruitment & Technology | Scoop.it

The 2014 edition of the ILO  World of Work discusses the importance of job quality amid somewhat positive global employment developments. Reflecting a smaller increase than previous projections, global unemployment stood at just under 200 million in 2013 and is expected to rise by 3.2 million in 2014. By 2019, given current trends and policies, unemployment will reach 213 million. Global joblessness is projected to remain broadly at the current level of 6 per cent until 2017.

The highest unemployment rates, in North Africa and the Middle East, are expected to remain at 12.3 and 11.1 per cent in 2014. The largest increase in 2014 is estimated for Central and South-Eastern Europe and former Soviet bloc countries, where unemployment will reach 8.3 per cent in 2014.

Over the next five years, 90 per cent of jobs will be created in emerging and developing countries. This is expected to have a significant impact on migration flows.

“Migration patterns look set to change as emerging and developing countries make further progress in improving the quality of jobs,“ said Mahmood. “Already, South-South migration is on the rise while workers are also leaving advanced economies, particularly some hard-hit European countries, for work opportunities in developing countries.”

Sirona Says: Forget 2017, The Future of Recruitment Is Here. Now

At what point do you stop believing job data? Every single day in the press, online, on Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn there is a new study about the state of talent somewhere in the world. Granted it is an important subject - in fact a crucial subject to some global industries at the moment. But is anyone actually paying attention to the thought that if some of these surveys are even 50% correct, we have really serious issues ahead in recruitment?

Peter Thompson's insight:

Great article by Andy Headworth on the tech available to direct sorucing companies right now & how this is reducing their reliance on agencies.... & why you need to be offering value to the communities where your ideal candidates hang out (not just the big platforms like LI etc.)

New ways to find talent | Crowdsource & Gamification | Recruitment & Technology | Scoop.it
An e-commerce website has taken a crowdsourcing approach to attracting and recruiting top talent. Could this be applied to your business?
Peter Thompson's insight:

“The Codehire Cup really attracts those hard-core tech-junkies,” Jodette Cleary, executive HR consultant at BigCommerce, toldHC. Cleary went on to clarify that their involvement with The Codehire Cup will not replace their recruitment mechanisms, but simply add on to what they already have in place. “This is another way of identifying that top talent, and then it is just about looking at cultural fit,” she said.

eGrabber is the leader in automated list building tools for B2B sales & recruiting.

Way better than a simple CV parser, this product has the potential to help recruiters & many other sales types to build meaningful information while surfing the web - even if you only have a few bits of information. The lead researcher also has great potential to build out your knowledge base. Worth a look. $1995 / user / yr may be a barrier for large scale take up.

Future of work: how the freelance revolution is changing the meaning of a ‘day job’

Future of work: how the freelance revolution is changing the meaning of a ‘day job’ | Recruitment & Technology | Scoop.it

Across Australia many employers have realised that developing and promoting an appealing working environment is an effective way to both attract and retain staff.

 

But even these efforts are proving insufficient in gaining the services of an increasing number of Australians, who are cashing in job security for a more flexible working lifestyle.

The exact number of Australian that are leaving full-time employment for life as a freelancer (also known as a ‘soloist’ in some circles) is hard to define – in part because many of Australia’s freelancers are actually moonlighting after working hours.

 

This is seen in figures from the Australian e-commerce platform provider BigCommerce, which has found that more than half of the work done by retailers who use its software is conducted in the evening. This suggests many online retailers are working a day job and running an e-commerce site at night.

 

Freelance economy: The United States in particular has seen a rapid rise in the so-called freelance economy, with freelancer numbers projected to outpace full-time workers by 2020, according to business services firm MBO Partners. The McKinsey Global Institute has also suggested that 160 million jobs – approximately 11 per cent of the world’s 1.46 billion service jobs – could be carried out remotely. While many of these freelancers work in traditional contracting arrangements, for a growing number work is facilitated through the numerous online outsourcing marketplaces, such as Freelancer.com, oDesk and Elance.

The 9 Hottest Trends In HR Technology ... And Many Are Disruptive

The 9 Hottest Trends In HR Technology ... And Many Are Disruptive | Recruitment & Technology | Scoop.it
I just completed several weeks of HR conferences (four vendor conferences, the HR Technology Conference, SuccessConnect, and LinkedIn TalentConnect) and want to share some insights on key directions in HR technology.
Peter Thompson's insight:
My personal bugbear is point 5. HR Vendor-Provided Middleware is Becoming a Standard! JB says "Bottom Line: HR Technology Is Changing Fast" Remember that HR is a huge marketplace: every company with more than 10 employees has some type of HR software in place. And today’s HR tools are used by managers, employees, candidates, and part time contractors, so everyone “uses” them. As technology changes, disruptive ideas and vendors come to market. It’s an exciting space, and every year it surprises us with new directions.

MONEYBALL AT WORK: They've Discovered What Really Makes A Great Employee

MONEYBALL AT WORK: They've Discovered What Really Makes A Great Employee | Recruitment & Technology | Scoop.it

Way beyond the résumé.

 

The one innate quality that is absolutely necessary for every job is "learning agility." That's the ability to pick things up quickly, to learn on the job, and to take initiative.

 

Over and over again, the people who perform best are the ones who don't need to be told what to do, the ones that love challenges, seek information on their own, and quickly adapt.


Peter Thompson's insight:

"What we're bringing to the table is what we call the human insight analytics," Kenexa CMO Tim Geisert says. "So what drives engagement from an organizational standpoint? What are the key data points that make people good at what they do in their jobs?"

Great article on the 1st of a 2 part series on the  two things innovative disruptive companies have in common

1 - an overwhelming desire to disrupt their competitors by re-imagining the ways things are done

2 - they are also guided and driven by leaders who come from what we at TomorrowToday call the Connection Generation.
