0 0

With AI and Automation being the major talking points whenever it comes to digital transformation, one fact is certain, companies need to prepare for the future of work in ways more than one. Throughout the week that went by, we witnessed companies raising funds to prepare themselves and their workforce for the future, firms collaborating with each other to empower a future lot of workers, and some major acquisitions.

Let’s have a flashback of the major HR Tech news from the past week, with insights from some top leaders.


Recruiters should realize that when it comes to communication, Gen Z is still pretty reserved. There’s no need for businesses to make super flashy attempts at reaching Gen Z. The most successful will simply pay attention to their many professional and personal profiles, and be especially careful about what DMs and inboxes they try to slide into -Casey Welch, President & CEO of Tallo.

What according to you are some of the basic challenges today’s B2B / Tech Hiring teams (teams hiring for roles in Tech Marketing/Sales) face?

TecHR Interview with Barend Raaff, CEO of Harver

“One of the biggest challenges that companies currently report is talent shortage. They are not able to find the right talent to fill their roles. Another frequently mentioned challenge is a lack of diversity in tech teams. At Harver, we overcome these challenges by being proactive in our recruitment efforts, anticipating hiring needs and sourcing talent both locally and internationally.”

TecHR Interview with Karen Cygal, Senior Vice President at Worldwide ERC

“Being able to assess the skills you need now and in the near future are critical. These skills may not be as clear as in the past, but being able to adapt and upskill in a short time frame may be more critical than the mastery of one specific skill. New generations in the workforce also have a lot of ideas. Being able to balance idea generation with product development/program, changes/cost and containment/new technology is critical.”
