In a rapidly changing job market, employees are constantly looking for new challenges and opportunities. They want to explore their skills, discover potential occupations that match their capabilities and identify relevant training paths to pursue their desired career. The Flemish Service for Employment and Vocational Training (VDAB) believes in the power of data and AI to support both employees and employers in this change of mindset.
Curious, entrepreneurial employees are what drives a company in today's rapidly evolving environment. So, creating a stimulating atmosphere where people get the chance to explore and develop their talents without judgement becomes necessary in every organisation. And that is exactly where CoachHub comes in. “It is time to change the perspective that coaching is only for the lucky few”, states Patrick Rütten, Senior Behavioural Scientist at CoachHub. “It is a proven practice that has advantages for all kinds of industries and use cases.”
Strategic workforce planning is not new. The concept has been proving its success for years and is seen as the way to go in many HR departments. Today, data and AI are breathing new life into it, creating many new opportunities. Peter-Andries Albrecht, Head of Global Talent at Umicore, and Yves van Durme, Global Organisational Transformation Leader at Deloitte, share how strategic workforce planning makes a difference.
Spending three hours in a classroom and then applying the knowledge gained during on-the-job training is a thing of the past. “Digital learning saves employees a lot of time and makes consuming theory more interactive and therefore more enjoyable,” says Jonas Maerschand, National Sales Manager at FLOWSPARKS. “In addition, the on-the-job story remains crucial. By turning to digital, there can be even more focus on experiencing and executing the theory.”
Every month, no fewer than 300 million jobseekers browse through Indeed. That Artificial Intelligence speeds up and supports the recruitment process is clear when using this platform, but how can we use data efficiently today when the challenges in the labour market are changing rapidly?
Data and technology are more important in our lives than ever. We collect data continuously and do whatever it takes to interpret them. And that is where the danger lurks: during the rush of the day, we forget to feel in addition to thinking. Creating balance and working on yourself still has a woolly connotation in a lot of organisations. At Randstad RiseSmart, they are convinced that feeling is at least as important, and can also be translated to the workplace in a rational way.
When looking for a job today, people want to know what it is like in your company. What is the culture? Why do people like working there? What are the challenges? If you succeed in turning your own employees into ambassadors, you have a powerful asset.
Technology pushes us to learn every day. Data changes at the speed of light and, on top of that, the expectations are high. All industries are eagerly watching IT to find out what is next. How do we give the customer that little bit extra? What actions can we take to perform better? Jocelyn Darbroudi, CIO at Securex, and Dorien Roes, Country Manager of Belux at Workday, shed light on their ongoing efforts to deal with these challenges.
In recent years, the traditional annual team-building activity has evolved into an important and integrated component of HR policy. Funkey, a Ghent-based team-building platform offering more than 650 team-building experiences to companies, is confident in its positive impact. For corporate entities, there is the Funkey Bizz division, which Volvo Cars has recently enthusiastically embraced.
