Over the past 12 years, I have served multiple TrueBlue brands as a leader of both digital transformation and service delivery. I joined PeopleScout in 2021 as Managing Director of the Americas and am honored to have recently been named President of PeopleScout. During my time with the organization, I have had the privilege of leading incredible teams and working alongside individuals who share a deep commitment to our mission to connect people and work. I have also spent time with our clients, talking with them often about the things keeping them up at night—from talent shortages to turnover, wage expectations and economic uncertainty.
At PeopleScout, we focus on developing customized solutions for our clients to ensure they have the workforce they need, now and in the future. In my new role, I will further my commitment to delivering innovative solutions that enable greater flexibility to address today’s market challenges.
During recent years, talent leaders have had to adapt quickly to COVID-19 and its effects on the job market. Trends such as the Great Rehire, the Great Resignation and quiet quitting called for immediate adjustments, often requiring employers to rely on trial and error.
So, where do we go from here? We are advising our clients to take time to reflect and apply learnings from the obstacles we have faced over the past three years to strategically and purposefully adjust to what’s next.
With the challenges of the last few years comes the opportunity to think creatively and challenge the status quo. The articles within this issue include research-based and actionable insights to help you hone your own recruitment strategy based on lessons learned.
The world of work is changing. The success of your talent acquisition strategies, regardless of what the future holds, relies on the ability to take what we have learned and apply that knowledge in a way that enables continued success.
