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.

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?
“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.”

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.
