“Great Organization Skills Needed. Duties May Vary”: The new hiring strategy for 21st Century organizations
Sixty-six percent: that’s the number of new hires reported by the Drucker Institute as either marginal or complete failures. It is also the percentage of employees that Gallup reports as being disengaged or “actively disengaged” across North America. The same percentage of hiring managers believe recruiters don’t understand the jobs they are filling and almost as many believe hiring managers don’t understand recruiting.
These shocking statistics present serious challenges for organizations that have been hiring for a 20th Century, industrial model rather than for the realities of 21st Century organizations.
Speaker Mark Federman will discuss this state of affairs and what it means for organizations. What if we consider every employee transition – arrival, promotion, reorganization, and resignation/termination – as an act that transforms the contemporary organization? What could be the impact on recruiting, development, advancement, and even termination if we view them as opportunities for culture transformation and organizational change?
Join Mark for a complimentary breakfast event at SEEC’s Nadal Management Centre to hear how organizations can move from “Who is the best person to fill this job?” to “Who is the best person to help us become our aspirations?” Marilyn Laiken, program director for SEEC’s Masters Certificate in Organization Development and Change program, will also be on hand to talk about the program and answer questions about furthering your career in the field.
