Making Sense of Talent Trends in a Post-Pandemic Reality

By Cinthya Alaniz Salazar | Thu, 09/15/2022 - 09:00

Chief human resources officers (CHRO) are being challenged once again to interpret and balance talent trends, but now in the context of a post-pandemic reality. In the aftermath of the transformation of norms and expectations, specialized talent remains scarce and costs have increased. 


This week in Talent news and developments:


Beyond Work: Flexible Work Models Benefit Everyone

Business leaders in Mexico are mainly concerned with the loss of control, commitment, contribution, connection, collaboration and culture. However, as most business leaders can attest, flexible work schemes have evolved from a nice-to-have to an expectation, which has observably hurt retention and recruitment rates among non-participating organizations, said Beyond Work’s Co-Founders. 


CHROs and Their Role as Heroes in the Aftermath of the Pandemic

The human capital area has increased in relevance and presence in the workplace during the past couple of years. “Above all, because we live in a constantly changing world where it is necessary for companies to transform themselves and put their employees at the heart of their strategies to generate better business results,” wrote Alma Rosa García Puig, CEO, Great Place to Work Mexico. 


Talent in a Post-COVID World

The pandemic left companies with great lessons that allowed them to advance in the management and human development areas, wrote Edgar Rosas Lopez, Partner, Emerlid.

“It is our duty not to throw away all these lessons and continue to evolve and be ready to provide continuity in innovation and be open to new work models.” 


Costs For Onboarding IT Talent Skyrockets

IT talent onboarding challenges are heavily influencing technology investment decisions, according to a new study published by Salesforce's MuleSoft. Nearly three-quarters of senior IT leaders agree that onboarding tech talent has never been more difficult, as costs rise organizations are seeing their technology investment choices become increasingly limited, reads a 2022 IT Leaders Pulse Report. 


Doing Away with Checkbox Diversity
Companies will not meet their diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) objectives following a “Checkbox Diversity” model without first attempting to understand and embrace people’s differences internally, according to the Stanford Social Innovation Review. To support the development of impactful DEI initiatives in Mexico’s business community, Mexico Talent Form ECHO, which will be held on Oct. 12-14, invited executive leaders to expand on their approach, implementation and insights.
