    There is a Talent Gap !

    Says the HR department
    * That can't manage a mail merge function that is 30+ years old
    * That has a blind Noreply@ourbigcompanywebsite email address for followup
    * That doesn't respond to direct e-mails from 'Professional" Employment Portals (hello L-I)
    * That doesn't respond to social media inquiries
    * That doesn't answer voice mails
    * That still has a FAX machine but does not reply to it either
    * That doesn't work with placement or recruitment firms
    * That has an Big Box ATS as the entry point to their 'process'
    * That 'values diversity' but never the individual
    * That 'integrates' AI into their 'hiring process'
    * That spends 6 seconds on a resume - if they see one at all
    * That has NO experience in the channel sector for which they are hiring
    * That is searching for the perfect 'Spirit Animal'
    * That reposts the same position in two months.

    After being employed at an organization for almost two years, I found myself in a difficult work life balance. I begged Human Resources to allow me to work at home. My manager and manager's manager didn't like the idea. However their boss understood and supported me. Keep in mind there were other individuals working at home too so on the surface, I didn't forsee any problems. I wasn't provided the same tools as other work at home employees and I suddenly was micro managed to the point that roughly 20% of my work week was consumed with emails and phone calls from my boss. I had to detail in writing the daily objectives, which resulted in a 3 way email chain discussion as far as what important tasks were to be accomplished then a daily email summary as far as what got accomplished. Of course, an activity report could been just as easily been pulled in the database, so the daily email was unnecessary. My experience I discovered wasn't alone, as another employee that transitioned to work at home expressed the same dissatisfaction in treatment by the employer. Employees that were initially hired as work at home employees indicated they never experienced this animosity toward them and were successful, which led me to conclude that the problem with work at home arrangements is a change management problem with management. I still met and exceeded goal for the year, but significant damage was created with regard to employer/employee trust. I felt like my supervisor was about to write me up for performance issues. I returned to the office just to stop the micro management but the damage was done, and I quit not long after.

    Really nice piece Juliana. The facts are there to see but it is a real test to see just how "progressive" an organisation is in how readily they grasp them.

    Coincidentally I am in a situation right now with a candidate who is really good and home based - the prospective client loves him but is finding it challenging to get their head around the home based rider. I intend to highlight a few of the facts that you have raised as they make incredible sense. Thank you very much for posting.

    Great piece @Tony Compton. A long time back when I was working in Recruitment I experienced the worst version of #4.
    The company doing the hiring paraded a candidate I had put forward as one of their own employees during a pitch to another company. They didn't get the business. Candidate did not get the job!
    The worst thing for your company brand is to not follow through in communicating with candidates. Interactions during the hiring process put company culture in broad daylight.
