The Recruiting Future Podcast Covering Innovation in HR and Recruitment

Over the last few years, there have been parallel conversations about candidate experience and talent experience. As thinking has developed, it has become obvious that these two things aren't mutually exclusive and are in fact elements of an overall talent experience. I recently undertook a research project in collaboration with Mervyn Dinnen and with the support of Saba Software, to explore the implications of a joined-up talent experience on talent acquisition. We spoke to several employers who are doing some exciting work in this area and have recently published our findings in a free...

The Recruiting Future Podcast Covering Innovation in HR and Recruitment

Contact: matt@metashift.co.uk We talk a lot about the poor quality of job postings with many just being a cut and paste version of the internal job description. However, we should also be talking about the poor quality of job descriptions themselves, many of which are put together in haste with little thought round impact and outcome. To give us a different perspective, my guest this week is Kate Leto, a well-known product management and transformation consultant.

Contact: matt@metashift.co.uk Employer Brand storytelling is a crucial topic for me, and it has been great to see an increase in the number of employers using the power of stories over the last 18 months. However realising the true potential of storytelling is only possible by understanding the science behind it and having proper strategies in place for audience segmentation, messaging, medium, format and distribution.

Flexible working is a hot topic at the moment. Despite all of the recent publicity around companies moving to four day weeks and other flexible initiatives, the reality is that flexibility is nowhere near the norm in working life.

I feel very strongly that there needs to be a fundamental change in the way we think about work. Too often, mental health and productivity are impacted by ways of working that are no longer relevant to the world in which we now live.

My guest this week is someone who feels the same way. Anna Whitehouse is the founder of Mother Pukka, a digital community for people who happen to be parents. Anna is also the driving force behind Flex Appeal, a campaign which is lobbying both government and employers to drive a shift in thinking about flexible working.

In the interview, we discuss:

• What is Flex Appeal?

• The huge benefits to employers of embracing flexible working

• The need from a fundamental shift in the way we think about work

• Evidencing increased productivity

• Agile Working and Job Pairing

• Leaving loudly

• Why recruiting and HR should embrace transparency to promote flexible working

Anna also talks about the future of Flex Appeal and shares her advice to individuals on the best way to persuade employers to let them work flexibly.
