Digitalisation has disrupted HR in a big way. There are seismic shifts in the way organisations attract, hire, retain and develop top talent. Candidates are taking advantage of the digital age that’s characterised by easy, immediate access to (sometimes) overwhelming information.
Another feature of new-age talent is the increasingly multi-generational workforce; Gen X to Gen Z. A one size fits all practice will unceremoniously fail. Add to this progressive parameters like ensuring gender diversity or hiring from the LGBTQ+ community, including women returning from a career break or hiring from Tier 2 or 3 cities and towns that all call for customised approaches.
