I am honored to be part of the PeopleScout team, the broader PeopleScout community and our PeopleScout NEXT publication—which just celebrated its second anniversary with a gold win in the 2020 Muse Creative Awards.
Also, as we move toward the end a year that has brought unprecedented adversity to individuals and organizations around the globe, I am honored to be at the helm of PeopleScout and our purpose-driven pursuit to find, engage and deliver the best talent. I find our mission deeply meaningful—especially at a time when having the right talent powering your business is more critical than ever.
Organizations today face an unpredictable future, but there are a few things that remain certain: the importance of finding the right talent to meet your business needs and ensuring that you have the right tools and technology to connect with the best talent efficiently and safely.
This issue of NEXT dives into those important topics and continues to focus on the concepts we introduced earlier this year as a response to COVID-19. This issue is again presented in three sections: New: Tackling the Challenges of 2020; Now: How to Be There for Employees in Response to Today’s Most Pressing Issues; and Next: Looking Ahead. In the Now section you’ll find an important special feature on Diversity and Inclusion. In it, we dig into the importance of inclusion, how to create effective employee resource groups and more.
Additionally, this issue contains a feature on workforce flexibility and what that means in today’s world of remote work. You’ll also hear from several of our internal subject matter experts on topics like why now is a great time for talent pipelining, the benefits of RPO in our new normal, how MSP and contingent labor programs can help maintain business continuity and how the pandemic is affecting your employer brand.
Thank you for being a part of the PeopleScout community and for the warm welcome you’ve extended as I’ve stepped into my new role. Over my first few weeks, I’ve had the opportunity to speak with many of our clients. For those of you I have yet to connect with, I look forward to getting to know you and your unique talent programs over the coming weeks and months.
In the meantime, please feel free to contact me or your PeopleScout partner directly to share your feedback on this issue of NEXT, discuss how we can best support you during COVID-19 and beyond or share anything else that may be on your mind.
