Digitalization has changed how we live as consumers. There has been a seismic shift in our habits, with everything we want now available on-demand. It’s no surprise that this digital consumer experience has influenced other aspects of our lives.
This trend of being instantly accessible and always-on has moved into the workplace, creating greater expectations from employers and employees alike. This is especially true when it comes to how we communicate with each other across our organizations.
"As the consumer world becomes more digitalized, candidates and employees alike expect their interactions with employers to evolve as well," writes Casimir Turbak, senior director of technology for Randstad Sourceright’s global Talent Innovation Center. "The workplace must be technologically accessible to provide the experience that workers are accustomed to in their personal lives."
Turbak offers five action steps for employers seeking to evolve their talent strategies to meet the expectations of today’s employees. The first of which is to identify high performers and early adopters who can help champion new digital technologies to their peers.
