FILLING THE BABY
Using Video Interviewing Technology
Human Capital Management professionals are facing
challenges as more and more of their employees with
deep cross-generational knowledge retire.
We will address a few of the challenges
that we routinely see mentioned in the
current trade literature.
REPLACEMENT TALENT IS HARD TO FIND
Generation Y, or “millennials”, with STEM degrees are difficult to recruit and
attract, as they may be courted by any number of technology companies
and startups outside of the fields they may have traditionally entered.
What if you could post a series of recorded
video interview questions the same questions you
might ask to screen candidates at a job fair or
during the initial phone screen?
REPLACEMENT TALENT IS HARD TO TRAIN
Once the internal talent is spotted, it then becomes the manager’s responsibility to
take on the role of mentor to the protégé, and this can often be impractical due to
scheduling considerations or location differences if they work in offices spread around
How do you find time available on everyone’s schedule that
can produce an effective learning environment?
With tighter budgets, you probably don’t often have
the luxury to fly every trainee in for a week’s worth
of training sessions with their mentor.
TRIBAL KNOWLEDGE IS HARD TO TRANSFER
Giving your top management team members access to a tool where they can re-
cord tribal knowledge in compact video format is a powerful way to help meet the
knowledge transfer challenge. You can always take the recorded information and
more carefully formalize them into your Learning Management Systems.
What about the knowledge your junior team members need
to obtain, practice and use TODAY?
