Podcast: Skills That Shape the Future of Work

Robots are creating jobs, not removing them

We hear people talk about technology taking over our jobs, robots replacing workers, and even the threat of a world without work. New jobs and skills are emerging every day, while others are becoming obsolete. None of us can be certain what the future holds, but we can be sure of one thing: we’ll all need to work and think differently in the future of work.

Recruitment is no exception. Artificial intelligence and automation is transforming the industry at pace and scale. But with the right skills and mindset, recruiters can augment, challenge and harness the power of technology, to deliver a more efficient and streamlined hiring process.

In this podcast, Jo Pursaill – Talent Director at ManpowerGroup – talks about the effects that new technology is having on the recruitment industry. She explores the importance of ‘learnability’ in the light of these rapid shifts, and how recruiters can find and nurture talent across the different generations in the modern workplace.

This podcast has been recorded as part of the Future Talent series by Changeboard, a global community for senior HR professionals.
