Interviewed by Infopresse, Macha Pohu, the firm’s Vice-President, Talent & Culture, discusses the new forces at work in the employment market.
She says: “When our children join the workforce, 60% of today’s jobs will no longer exist and the others will be redefined.” Jobs are changing, but so are hiring criteria.
Macha Pohu explains: “A few years ago, we would never have considered someone who had changed jobs more than once in two years. Today, it’s the opposite, if someone has been in the same place too long, the concern is their ability to handle change.”
She goes on to say that often, candidates with an uncommon profile will be called for an interview. Furthermore, the manager’s role is also evolving. Candidates are looking for a boss who is more than just a manager.
“Today, everybody wants to be involved, to have some freedom to act, to take up challenges with their superiors’ trust,” the Vice-President added.
