In today’s rapidly changing economy, business leaders are
constantly thinking about how to attract, engage, manage,
develop and retain their talent. The brisk rate of technology
transformation, the increase in demand for unique skills and
the expansion of regulatory requirements all create challenges
as well as opportunities around attracting and developing a
diverse workforce. Quickly and effectively responding to the
business needs of your employees by optimizing processes
and technologies—while mitigating risk—enables you to drive
growth, productivity and profitability.
A growing business is usually a good thing, but for talent acquisition teams, growth on a large scale can pose some unique recruiting challenges. That’s because rapid expansion can confront talent acquisition with the need to ensure that as the company grows, quality of hire doesn’t shrink.
If you’re like everyone else in HR today, you’re probably thinking about how your organisation can handle data better. Maybe your executives want the power to make data-driven decisions from comprehensive workforce analytics. Perhaps you’d like to streamline the efficiency of your HR operation or put more actionable information in the hands of your line managers and employees. With the elixHR Platform, you can integrate your HR data and processes so your people can access information quickly and easily, and make better decisions. You can also lower your operational costs because you can increase efficiency and eliminate the need to replace HR systems that you already have in place.
The war for talent is back. But this time, the way to win it isn’t by solidifying your employment brand or ramping up your recruiting machine. In fact, there are probably plenty of people aware of and even applying to your jobs. So why is it still so hard to find the right talent?

In global, multicultural organizations, simply expecting all employees to speak one common language, such as English, marginalizes the potential impact of international talent and leaves monolingual staff ill-equipped to help the organization compete effectively in a globalized environment.
In an increasingly global economy, U.S. companies will perform better by hiring individuals who can communicate in foreign languages and helping current employees develop language skills. Forbes Insights, in conjunction with Rosetta Stone, surveyed more than 100 executives at large U.S. businesses (annual revenues of more than $500 million) and found that language barriers have a broad and pervasive impact on business operations. The survey found that foreign language skills will be even more vital in the future and that language abilities can help executives advance their careers, speed overseas expansion, and boost corporate—as well as personal—success.
