2019 Trends for the Talent Pipeline

Do You Need to Adjust Your Talent Pipeline Strategies for the New Year?

Utilize the latest technology, including AI to improve your talent pipeline and improve retention.Are you just now feeling like you’re on top of the all the HR trends that dropped in 2018? Don’t fear, some of them will continue on into 2019, and there will also be some new trends to be aware of.  Now is a good time to address some of the best talent pipeline strategies out there today.

The world is changing, and if you’re not changing along with it, you’re not going to entice the best and brightest into your talent pipeline. Here is what you need to know for 2019:

Step Up to AI

Artificial intelligence (AI) provides great advantages if you know how to use it. As the technology improves, it impacts the skills required of human resource personnel. When you consider that some organizations have AI doing more than half of their daily mundane tasks, you can start counting on soft skills coming into play a little more aggressively.

This trend toward AI has only just found its feet; it will continue to impact the way we carry out our tasks well after 2019, giving us more time to focus on the important things, like finding the right fit to our open positions.

Virtual Reality Tools

Yes, technology is a theme here, but virtual reality tools are giving you more options in how you evaluate your talent pool. You’ve probably already noticed how much more you can tell about an applicant with a video clip, but what about seeing them on the job in a real-world situation?

Most of us don’t have the time or resources to run them through a real work scenario, such as in a mock job situation where they’re doing real work, but you can utilize virtual reality to put your prospective new hires in a real-world situation to ascertain how they will handle various situations. You can even customize it to see how they will respond in the exact type of situations they’ll be in if they are offered the job.

Improve Your Outward Facing Image

You might have a percentage of excellent employees who found out about your organization from someone from the inside, but the majority of people run into your brand while online.

Your social media pages say a lot about who you are, which is why a trend for 2019 will continue to be polishing your image to fit your company culture. From your branding to your social profiles, everything needs to be consistent and speak to who you are as an organization. This will attract the people who will be a good fit.

Predictive Index

Another tool in your arsenal is the Predictive Index method, which is a scientifically proven way of identifying the best talent for your unique needs.
