Panel discussion: Hiring today for future needs

Panel discussion: Hiring today for future needs

Over the past months, the Covid-19 pandemic has forced organisations to reassess their business priorities. Survival strategies have replaced conversations around growth and diversification. However, despite ongoing cutbacks and layoffs, businesses will continue to rely on talent to survive and thrive and through whatever means HR can, it must shape a forward-thinking talent and hiring strategy — one that enables a business to be future-proof, to transform and to avoid being disrupted to the point of extinction.

The panel will discuss:

  • broadening and diversifying talent pools vs. developing skills in-house
  • mapping out hiring strategy for a company’s future state
  • maximising competencies of newer employees and identifying the type of skills businesses should be hiring for.
