  5. 5. As Marissa Mayer CEO of Yahoo said during an interview on Bloomberg TV, May 2013: “Technology companies live and die by the talent they can attract” “Often the best solution to a management problem is the right person” Edwin Booz, 1914 “Talent is the #1 top concern of CEO’s”. IBM CEO Survey 2012. Top Talent – Right fit, right time
  6. 6. “In today’s knowledge economy, competitive advantage is increasingly coming from the particular, hard-to- duplicate know-how of a company’s most skilled people: talented (and highly paid) engineers, salespeople, scientists, and other professionals.” Redesigning Knowledge Work. Harvard Business Review 2013.
  7. 7. Human capital market - current Three recent examples: 1. Senior Environmental Advisor 2. Principal Geologist 3. Remuneration Manager (Head of Remuneration & Benefits for ASX 100 company)
  8. 8. Targeted research, reaching out to enough of the right people and a thorough selection process is why executive search is effective “It seems to me that a careful examination might possibly reveal some traces of this mysterious individual” The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes
  9. 9. Recruiting trends – Online tools The hidden job market is growing and the labour market is constantly changing Technology is a fantastic enabler: • Move to online tools for sourcing talent • Consolidation of market share of online job boards and emergence of new players

  11. 11. Recruiting Trends - Big data Big data means using data to find patterns about people. • How did Xerox reduce turnover in customer service employees by 1/5th? They discovered those that live nearby work and are able get to work easily are less likely to quit. • A study by Evolv of 100,000 call centre workers showed those who job-hopped in the past were no more likely to quit sooner than non job-hoppers. Counter intuitive? Source “The Economist”
