With young entrepreneurs acting as its early advocates across industries, technology promises to be a strong game changer. In today’s day and age there cannot be a more perfect meeting place for human and artificial intelligence (AI) than human resources (HR). The synergy of the two is all set to transform the way organizations recruit, assess, manage and motivate talent.
Following the 2019 Conference on Global Migration and Talent Mobility held last Saturday, a roundtable discussion on the theme of “Global talent management in a changing context: perspectives from global think tanks” was co-hosted by the Center for China and Globalization (CCG), and Mercator Institute for China Studies (MERICS).
A group of prominent scholars, experts and officials in the field of migration from CCG, MERICS, various international organizations, foreign think tanks and universities shared insights into the theory and practice in the management of global talent in order to offer policy advice for China’s own talent migration management regime.

Companies are no longer happy with end-to-end talent management systems designed for HR – we now need platforms that help employees (and contingents) manage their owntalent experience at work.

I wanted to bring about positive change to organisations in a purposeful but playful way that I felt was just not achievable as a corporate employee.
Most people assume a hiring process goes like this: They submit an application and resume, get called for an interview, then entertain a job offer before accepting.
Top candidates, however, expect that potential new employers will do more than go through these ordinary motions.
To acquire the best talent, companies must focus on creating a process that communicates professional respect for each candidate’s abilities at every step.

Today’s workers have different wants and needs compared to those of previous generations. Security and predictability have given way to preferences for flexibility, culture fit and a people-first focus.
Google recently published an article stating that psychological safety can be the number one dynamic that sets a successful team apart from others; more important that actual talent or resources.
As a company grows, so does its talent management needs. And while every business has its own unique performance goals, fostering an environment where employees can grow and develop over time is a valuable aim for any company.
