There are many ways to earn in 2020 - from labourers to playbourers, preachers to teachers, carers to sharers. 

As jobs unbundle into tasks, new types of organisations, markets, platforms, and work ecosystems will evolve that are better suited for our needs in the Digital Covid Age. 

This long read has some ideas, examples and questions for our most important work yet - rebuilding resilient, fair, and prosperous societies.

Would love your thoughts....

Automation and the Future of the Recruitment Function

Automation and the Future of the Recruitment Function | HR Transformation | Scoop.it

This article by Kevin Wheeler, moves from the general and breaks down exactly where AI could automate recruitment in a few years time.  

Andrew Spences insight:

By breaking down the recruitment process, Kevin identifies areas where automation could improve recruitment.

 

This includes chatbots, emotion recognition, simulations, predictive analytics.

 

Many companies are doing aspects of this already, but the reality is most recruitment operations have only automated a tiny percentage so far.  

 

The article also discusses the impact on careers, as the recruiting function is redesigned into a more personalised, advice-orientated function.

Everything I Learned About Predictive Hiring, I Learned from Applying for a Mortgage | HR Transformation | Scoop.it
The same data science approaches used by lenders and creditors are immensely useful for predicting employee performance - pre-hire - before it’s too late.
Andrew Spences insight:

I think this article gives a very good example of using predictive analytics and how to overcome some of the challenges.

 

Two Problems with Most “Predictive” HR Systems and Approaches

  • Most approaches “predict” flight risk or performance for current employees only – when it’s too late.
  • Most approaches don’t have highly predictive job candidate data – and never consider augmenting their candidate datasets so they can predict pre-hire.
