The Autonomous, Empowered and Highly Virtual Workforce
The changing dynamics of the modern workplace are causing employees to closely evaluate career choices and their options for advancement. The idea of a career-for-life with one employer has certainly waned, but it is not entirely dead. At the other extreme, many employees now believe it is in their best interest to seek out opportunities with multiple employers, building their network and skill set along the way. This volatility in the labor market seems to be the new norm, and it poses special challenges for both employees seeking to advance their skills, and employers wishing to retain the best talent.

Talentomics - 9 Ways HR Must Adapt to Find Talent
Fundamentally, managing your talent supply is a little bit like making kimchi. Now, you must weigh up your ability to find someone who can make it already, or your ability to train and develop existing staff to do it. This is the role that HR must play in an increasingly globalized, multi-generational, fast-moving business environment. One day it will be kimchi, the next it will be another skill or talent.
This is the new reality. Talentomics is a single supply-chain model: finding, securing, developing and retaining the right talent at the right time and place is imperative to keeping pace with business needs. In this talk, we hope to show you what it means, why it’s happening and how to evolve your HR practice to adapt.
How to Find (And Keep) STEM Talent
They may be relatively small in number, but they pull more than their fair share of economic weight. Amid higher unemployment and economic turmoil, we need them now more than ever.
STEM jobs (97 occupations that fall into the science, technology, engineering and mathematics fields) are part of a critical cycle of economic growth. They are vital for national competitiveness, fueling the economy and creating more downstream jobs.
That’s the good news. Now for the not-so-good news.
By international standards, students in the U.S. rate in the middle of the pack (or lower) with respect to proficiency in science and mathematics. And, we’re graduating the same proportion of STEM graduates now as we did 20 years ago. When you factor in the growth in STEM demand, this is creating a serious shortfall of talent that has implications for an increasingly global economy of innovation.
There are a number of factors that are inhibiting new entrants to STEM fields and luring existing participants away to others. These include significant cultural, gender and attitudinal shifts and long-held notions that shape who enters (and who stays in) STEM-related educational tracks and careers. Companies themselves must understand these forces, and be aware of how they may be contributing to them if they are to be turned around.
