In this episode Eleanor and Barry discuss the “talent paradox” and look at the reasons why enterprises find engaging with human cloud models so challenging. They role play a scenario to bring to life how companies can overcome concerns about security, compliance, employment classification, IP protection and more and discuss how despite having solutions for each one, enterprises still find it difficult to engage readily available open talent due to “organisational inertia” and they look at the role of HR experts and Change Managers in helping to make the change happen.
To bring the topic to life they are joined by Mark Brooks-Lewis the Founder of LavaSourceHR the new talent marketplace and community for HR, HR Tech and OCM Professionals. Mark describes why he established LavaSourceHR and how he expects the market to develop in response to enterprise demand for HR professionals, HR Technology experts and Change Management practitioners that are now available through his new platform. Mark also discusses his first and worst job and his long-time prediction that England will win the Euros!
