We’ve got an amazing issue for you all – great content from FirstRound, a new concept for me in ‘Organisation Network Analytics’, a ton of stuff on the Future of Work and a quite amazing data visualisation on Blockchain.
But first I need your help Last week a friend of mine, head of talent at a well known Series B funded Startup, asked me if I thought the ‘req load’ for her team was too high. I did. But I realised there was nothing more than gut instinct to back up my all-too-easy confirmation.
So I’m doing something about it: “Internal Recruiters: What is your Req Load” is an anonymous survey and I need your help to get a decent data set. The results will be published here so everyone can get access to the report and the primary data. It takes 1 minute to do. Can we get 1,000 completions? With your help, I think we can.
Click on the link above and give this a go.
Thanks in advance!

Intellectual capital trumps financial capital is the general idea behind this piece. Basically, we need to make space in our day to think. Tough to do in recruiting, where targets and KPI’s create the constant pressure to optimise CULTURE
Some superb dystopia from the FT here, with a post packed full of new language we need to describe the future of work “human intelligence tasks” performed by the “precariat” which is kind of an “artificial artificial intelligence”. This is a thought provoker and a great read. H/T brainfooderDavid Greenfor the share. FUTURE OF WORK

When labor markets tighten, wages are expected to rise. But in recent years, as unemployment has fallen below 5 percent in the United States, wages have not been increasing as fast as in the past. Short but informative post from the New York Times. FUTURE OF WORK
I’ve been promoting this event for the past 3 weeks. Two reasons – firstly, it’s going to be excellent; 400+ internal recruiters, 30+ innovative recruitment tech vendors and massive festival. Secondly, because I’ll be MC’ing one of the stages. It’s a sell out but get yourself on the waitlist folks – it’ll be worth it if you can get in.
