Keynote Presentation - Unleashing the Collaborative Potential of Your Workforce
To get ahead in the knowledge economy, businesses need to leverage the smarts already within their four walls. This is especially true in the recruitment industry, at a time where business models must evolve and adapt to the changing supply and demand dynamic in employment markets, a more transient workforce, increasingly demanding clients and emerging technologies that risk ‘cutting out the middle man’.
In this inspiring and provocative session, co-founder and Chief Creative Officer of multinational behaviour change agency Dominic Thurbon, will explore the drivers of innovation, the future of collaboration and the sources of new value in the recruitment business.
Through the session, we will explore:
- The threats to the fee-for-service model, and analogies to other industries that have come under similar pressure
- How organisation-wide collaboration, whether you’re a large enterprise or an SME, lies at the heart of innovation
- How the very technologies that are revolutionising collaboration in the enterprise are ALSO putting at risk the very heart of the recruitment value proposition – connections to amazing people – and how we can adapt to take advantage of these change
- A summary of the themes of the conference, and why we should be optimistic, inspired and excited about what the future holds – for businesses of all sizes in the industry
