Millennials will complete the digital transformation of businesses. Here’s how to get them working for you

Posted by media on October 20, 2016 at 9:00 AM

In this blog we've talked about how to include the Millennial generation in companies’ commercial strategies. But businesses should not only aspire to catch the attention of those born between the early 1980s and 2000s as buyers - they should also strive to be perceived as workplaces where Millennials want to develop their careers. Why? Because this group is earmarked as the one set to complete the digital transformation of enterprises, since they are the first digitally native generation and have know-how that no executive over 50 years old would.

All companies seeking Millennial talent are competing to attract and retain the best candidates, but given that it is a generation characterized by having very little loyalty to employers, the issue is to develop a strategy that not only attracts these professionals but retains them. So how can a business stand out as an attractive prospect for Millennials?

5 essentials for fostering intrapreneurship in your company

Posted by media on September 27, 2016 at 9:00 AM

In this blog we’ve examined the importance of business innovation on the common assumption that digital transformation is a fundamental to a company’s survival.

Taking an innovative idea and actually putting it into practice requires, among other things, new roles and leaderships, the articulation of a true digital culture and the implementation of new ways of working. But beyond the basics, any kind of innovation is the result of an intrapreneurial figure taking the bull by the horns and actually making change happen within a company.

In this post, we offer 5 key ways of promoting a spirit of intrapreneurship in any organization.

How will the Fourth Industrial Revolution affect HR?

Posted by media on September 20, 2016 at 9:00 AM

Despite having been coined relatively recently, the concept of the fourth industrial revolution is accepted as a real and irreversible phenomenon set to profoundly change all aspects of business management.

The revolution heralds serious technological, demographic and socioeconomic disruptions affecting just about every aspect of a business, and in the case of human resources, there’s talk that these disruptions will both cause redundancies as well as create entirely new job roles. It is thought that an estimated 65% of children now enrolled in primary education will eventually work in professions that have not as yet been invented.

The World Economic Forum (WEF) recently published the Future of Jobs Report to better understand the impact of the fourth industrial revolution on the workplace, as well as emerging challenges related to attracting, training and retaining professional talent.

In this post, we take a closer look at some of the report’s findings as a sequel to our first article on the impact of the fourth industrial revolution, with a particular emphasis on how human resource departments are set to be affected.
