Ira S Wolfe’s new book Recruiting in the Age of Googlization acknowledges the shortage of skilled workers is very real. But he places some of the blame for under-performing talent acquisition squarely on the shoulders of management. He cites the lack of evidence-based recruitment and employee selection, the unfair bashing of Millennials, and a job application process that is completely out of touch with today’s labor and jobs marketplace.
In Recruiting in the Age of Googlization, ($19.95, Motivational Press, December 2017) Wolfe first paints an authentic yet terrifying picture of how technology and demographics is disrupting jobs and work as we know it … and as a result is transforming how organizations will attract, acquire, and retain talent. He writes, “it’s just like science fiction is jumping off the pages of reality.” Wolfe deftly describes how automation and disruptive technologies such as artificial intelligence, robotics, and 3D printing will revolutionize the way we work, live, and play. It is within this new world that Wolfe dissects the traditional recruitment pipeline and offers a step-by-step guide to improve talent acquisition and job search.
Throughout the book Wolfe offers compelling examples and key point summaries. He suggests three trends that he believes will blindside many businesses and workers within the next five years:
- Jobs will be automated faster than anticipated.
- Automation will not be limited to low-skill jobs.
- The impact from automation will disrupt work, careers, and jobs greater than expected.
Consequently, Wolfe forecasts massive disruption in the ways businesses acquire top talent and workers seek jobs. To help anticipate and navigate the disruption, Wolfe offers a library of provocative strategic questions each organization or individual must be asking.
“When speaking and working with clients, I’m continuously shocked by how many organizations perpetuate common recruiting blunders,” says Wolfe. “The world of work is changing…
