What talent issues are you facing?
The first of Havas People’s ‘talent bites’ events, held in April, focused on how to reach out to young people as potential employees.
Rajeeb Dey, founder and CEO of Enternships, emphasised that young people seek “autonomy, mastery and purpose” in their careers, and called on organisations to adopt a learning-based approach when selecting talent, equipping young people with the skills they want and need. “We need a new model which brings together online and offline learning, giving people the chance to enhance this with employer-led insights,” he said. He encouraged employers to consider placing useful open-source content online where everyone can access it, rather than only providing it when people have joined the organisation.
