Candidate Sourcing & Selection is a matter of Big Data, not how you perform at an interview

To find that Holy Grail of job qualification: culture fit. One solution, particularly for the new generation of job seekers might lie in "gamification".
Among many companies attempting that particular quest is another American startup, Knack, which this month established an office in London. Knack – tagline: "We're reimagining how people discover their potential, from education to work to innovation" – uses immersive online video games to collect data to quantify how creative, cautious, flexible and curious, etc, potential job applicants are, and offers thereby to funnel tens of thousands of applicants for clients.
Knack began when its Israeli founder, Guy Halfteck, failed to land a job with a large New York hedge fund after an interview process lasting six months of interviews and tests based on the common fallacy that the more information human decision-makers have, the better judgments they can make. Beyond a certain point, the information just becomes noise, Halfteck argues, with a data-driven weight of evidence on his side. He looked for a different model, one that could "transcend resumés, transcend interviews, transcend what people say about themselves and cut to some data that is actually credible …"

Four principles of culture change

Four principles of culture change | HRintech  - - -  HR Innovation & Technology | Scoop.it
When I founded Senn Delaney 37 years ago to focus solely on creating healthy, high-performance cultures and improving the spirit and performance of organizations, I had to do a lot of basic grounding in my discussions with leaders to explain what culture is and why it should be shaped instead of letting the culture shape the organization.

Today, organizational culture has reached a tipping point. In fact, culture was named the most popular word of the year in 2014 by Merriam-Webster. It has now become one of the most important words in corporate boardrooms, and for good reason. Most CEOs know that culture matters and can have a strong impact on business results. Companies that focus on culture are becoming icons for job seekers, especially the future generation of leaders, who place a premium on work-life balance and culture fit in choosing where to work.

Big Companies Are Embracing Analytics, But Most Still Don’t Have a Data-Driven Culture

Big Companies Are Embracing Analytics, But Most Still Don’t Have a Data-Driven Culture | HRintech  - - -  HR Innovation & Technology | Scoop.it
For six consecutive years NewVantage Partners has conducted an annual survey on how executives in large corporations view data. Each year the response rate increases, and the reported urgency of making effective use of data increases as well. This year the results are both more encouraging and more worrisome than in the past.

Six years ago, the primary focus of questions and answers in the survey was big data, which was relatively new on the business scene. In the 2018 survey, the primary attention has moved to artificial intelligence. AI is now a well-established focus at these large, sophisticated firms. There is both a stronger feeling that big data and AI projects deliver value and a greater concern that established firms will be disrupted by startups.

Automation in recruitment and why it is a necessary for HR  | HRintech  - - -  HR Innovation & Technology | Scoop.it
Technology has made huge inroads into our professional and personal lives, and it is no wonder then that a department that hustles several transactional tasks, which are routine yet vital to the smooth running of the organization, is undergoing a major transformation with technology at the helm.

Right from recruiting skilled talent (quite a long-drawn-out process that one!), onboarding them, entering employee data into payroll system and updating it regularly, granting leaves, handling shifts, assisting employees with any documents they might need, preparing tons of recruiting reports to promoting companies at job events, organize external/internal training for employees, gathering feedback from employees, managing internal communication with employees, the operational and functional tasks that come under the purview of Human Resources are rigorous.

A lot of people – including us – are looking for a talent management model but so far, no one has developed such a model yet. This article, therefore, introduces a talent management model you can use in order to get the most out of your employees.
The AARRR model
Back in the day, I taught entrepreneurship to university students. One of my favorite models to explain startup marketing was the pirate – or AARRR – model (originally by Ash Maura). I usually introduced it by asking: “What does a pirate smoke? A cigAARRR!”

How can we establish a model for successful HR transformation?

HR - often side-tracked from strategy
During two earlier articles we discussed the fact that many international companies are facing challenges in their HR function and the fact that on the administration side, HR admin tasks are often duplicated across business units and countries – diverting focus from strategic HR tasks. We subsequently identified the 6 main ‘derailers’ why HR transformation efforts often fail and identified the 3 overwhelming enablers for HR transformation.

In the literature, the term 'HR transformation' is sometimes distinguished between first and next generation HR transformation:

Five Workplace Issues We’ll Be Talking About In 2018 | HRintech  - - -  HR Innovation & Technology | Scoop.it

We thought 2016 was a year of turning points. But we had no idea how 2017 would shape up to hold far more moments that affected the workplace, from the current administration’s changing positions on labor policy issues, to whistleblowers sounding the alarm on sexism, racism, and other unfair practices, to the shifting demographics of the workforce itself with the first members of gen Z making their entry into full-time employment.

 

Here is a look at some of the more significant trends that will continue to dominate the conversation around work in 2018.

These are all good conversations to have. The one I want to see the most is about being the best humans we can be because therein lies the future of work far more than anything else
Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, December 21, 2017 2:10 PM
We should have been talking about the first two all along, unequal pay and workplace harrassment. The latter is all about power and bullying.

The last one, AI in the workplace, is something that needs to be talked about. It is a greater challenge in job loss and a need to rethink what that means for the future. Jobs are leaving, not only because of tax incentives, but because humans can be replaced. Is that what we want?

Grads of LifeVoice: The Disruption Of Higher Education And America's New Manufacturing Industry - Part 3

Whenever any new technology emerges that challenges the way people and businesses have been doing things for years or even decades, the initial excitement is often overshadowed by uncertainty and reluctance to try something new. In the early days of the cloud, it was almost inconceivable to think that it would lead to such a profound shift in how businesses operate. More recently, the drive toward digital transformation has caused even greater anxiety in some organizations.

In this age of digital transformation, all industries -- from manufacturing and banking to hospitality and retail -- are evolving. This means that decision makers must identify key business issues, not technology issues, that digital transformation can tackle. Companies need to not only harness the power of the latest digital technologies and platforms to stay relevant and competitive but also course-correct their business models based on evolving customer demands.

What is a “Fail Fast” Organizational Culture?

What does “fail fast” mean in its original context?

In software development, the intention is to discover and detect where a potential problem might occur in the overall process, to speed it up and minimise time and costs. The focus is on iterating and steering the project to success as it develops, rather than creating a lot of software before showing it to the end user – to minimize the risks involved in their acceptance of it. This enables developers to test their products and get immediate customer feedback, to ensure that what is being developed is in tune, and aligned with what customer’s think they might want, or want.

Create a Growth Culture, Not a Performance-Obsessed One

Create a Growth Culture, Not a Performance-Obsessed One | HRintech  - - -  HR Innovation & Technology | Scoop.it
Here’s the dilemma: In a competitive, complex, and volatile business environment, companies need more from their employees than ever. But the same forces rocking businesses are also overwhelming employees, driving up their fear, and compromising their capacity.

It’s no wonder that so many C-Suite leaders are focused on how to build higher performance cultures.  The irony, we’ve found, is that building a culture focused on performance may not be the best, healthiest, or most sustainable way to fuel results. Instead, it may be more effective to focus on creating a culture of growth.

Is Learning Without HR a Developing Trend? | TLNT | HRintech  - - -  HR Innovation & Technology | Scoop.it

Emoquo is a good example of a new generation of learning products. It’s a cool little tool that uses short videos to help employees figure out how to handle specific interpersonal issues in the workplace. It has all the hallmarks of where training seems to going: cloud-based, just-in-time, microlearning that is initiated by the employee.
What interests me is how this sort of technology fits into a company’s learning and development strategy. There is no reason an individual department couldn’t adopt this learning tool without consulting HR. There is no need to integrate with the LMS; no need to worry about budgets since these tools are inexpensive; no need to train employees how to use the tool or to monitor it’s use; there’s not even any need to involve IT in implementing this cloud-based learning technology.

The growing need for recruitment automation tools has fuelled the recent popularity in AI for recruiting.

With hiring volume predicted to increase next year but recruiting teams remaining the same size or shrinking, interest in recruitment automation will only get stronger.

In 2017, finding top talent will depend on a recruiter’s ability to intelligently automate their workflow.
Recruiting teams are also facing increased pressure to demonstrate data-based KPIs. Talent acquisition leaders are increasingly measuring their recruiting teams by quality of hire in addition to time to fill.

According to LinkedIn’s data, the most important recruiting KPIs are:

Quality of hire is the top priority for 60% of talent acquisition leaders
Time to fill is the top priority for 28% of talent acquisition leaders

What is process innovation and why it can transform your business  | HRintech  - - -  HR Innovation & Technology | Scoop.it
Process innovation is the foundation for superior performance in any industry. Digitization throws new challenges at many organizations today. The only way to react to those challenges and solve them effectively and efficiently is by implementing new changes and quickly reinventing processes across verticals and geographies. Also, today’s economy is ruled by customers like it was never before, and it overindulges in mass publicity too. New customer needs and new technologies make your old innovation outdated. In such a scenario, only process innovation offers sustainable and meaningful ways to get and stay ahead in your industry. Keep rethinking what you have already rethought. Make process innovation a way of life in your organization and streamline it by using more innovative processes.

Artificial intelligence (AI) offers enormous potential to transform our businesses, solve some of our toughest problems and inspire the world to a better future. But our AI systems are only as good as the data we put into them. As AI becomes increasingly ubiquitous in all aspects of our lives, ensuring we’re developing and training these systems with data that is fair, interpretable and unbiased is critical.

“Our AI systems are only as good as the data we put into them.”

Bad data can contain implicit racial, gender, or ideological biases. It can be poorly researched, with vague and unsourced origins. For some, end results can be catastrophic: Qualified candidates can be disregarded for employment, while others can be subjected to unfair treatment in areas such as education or financial lending. In other words, that age-old saying, “garbage in, garbage out” still applies to data-driven AI systems.

The Big Company Purpose Quiz 

The Big Company Purpose Quiz  | HRintech  - - -  HR Innovation & Technology | Scoop.it
If you want to create confusion in a group of consultants, you should start a discussion about the purpose of organisations. There is always someone who starts explaining (with an underlying tone of “why do I always have to explain the basics?”) what a purpose is, and what the difference is between purpose, mission, vision and values. For a moment it seems to be clear, but that never lasts long. Especially the boundaries between purpose and mission are blurry (or was it between purpose and vision?).

Time for the BIG Purpose Quiz. The main question is number 2: are you able to match 62 organisations with their purpose/ mission statement?

Consumer-products giant Unilever, for one, already has made hundreds of global entry-level job and internship hires using such advanced analytics and artificial intelligence tools. Candidates now need only click on a Unilever ad on Facebook or a targeted career-advice site and use their LinkedIn profile to fill out an application.

If an algorithm that sifts applications sends theirs along, they play a set of online games that assess their skills. If they clear that hurdle, they submit video interviews through a website or app. The lucky finalists then get in front of a hiring manager.

I am not sure the math is right (0,3 w / Gh gives me 3333 Gh / Kw, not 300) but still, I can imagine the energy needed to make the system works!


Pas trop certain que les calculs sont corrects (0,3 w par Gh me donne 3333 Gh par Kw, pas 300 tel qu'indiqué dans le texte).  J'imagine aisément par contre l'énergie requise pour faire fonctionner le système...


"Not only does that centralize bitcoin mining, but it also screws up energy usage. The most advanced bitcoin miners now expend 0.3 watts per billion hash calculations, or “gigahashes.” Flip that math around and you get 300 Gh per second per kilowatt. So the sketch is basically 13,600 petahashes per second with 234 kWh consumed by every transaction, giving you 32.71 terawatt-hours consumed by the Bitcoin network—or 0.15 percent of the total world consumption of electricity."

Data and Technology Don’t Change Your Culture, They Reveal it

In Weapons of Math Destruction, mathematician and data scientist Cathy O’Neil paints a disturbing picture of how data can go awry. “Black box” algorithms that make decisions with little to no transparency or accountability can lead to bizarre situations in which judgments are handed down with no possibility of appeal.

For example, she tells the story of Sarah Wysocki, a teacher who, despite being widely respected by her students, their parents and her peers, was fired because she performed poorly according to an algorithm. She now works at another school district that uses humans to evaluate teachers.
