On this call we welcomed KellyOCG President Tammy Browning who discussed the key findings in the 2021 Global Workforce Agility Report. The KellyOCG Global Workforce Agility Report is a valuable and informative piece of research that is broken down by industries and geographies, and reveals how some of the world’s most agile organizations are leading the way. They spoke to 1000 senior executives across 13 countries to find out how their talent strategies are meeting the challenge of a workforce that’s in constant flux.

00:22:15 Carin-Isabel Knoop (HBS): perhaps instead of calling it the “great resignation,” we should call it the “great reconfiguration” for Future of Work type fans like us

00:50:45 Chris Link Duarte: When we talk about DEI and attracting talent- aren’t we creating a new category of underserved when companies use analytics to attract younger talent? Doesn’t it create a category of difference with people in older age groups? These people are falling short of being found and older professionals are struggling to share their talent
00:52:16 Tom O’Malley: Regarding hourly work: I wonder what the elasticity of immediacy of pay…how much more willing is a person to work if they get paid immediately….many App jobs offer that and people really love getting paid right away. Has anyone done work on that?
00:52:29 kannan upadhyaya: In fact this is an opportunity for senior professionals who find it difficult to relocate.
00:53:32 Carin-Isabel Knoop (HBS): @chris — great point. you are getting to the core of what we mean by equity and whose equity. eager to get your thoughts on this piece we recently published: https://carinisabelknoop.medium.com/your-equity-or-mine-6efc0fd30f7f?source=your_stories_page————————————-
00:54:36 kannan upadhyaya: Little bit of upskilling around their passion can help senior professionals in contributing towards organisations in new environment
00:54:46 Bryan Peña: There is some research on that topic Tom. Surprisingly the immediacy of pay matters across all types of labor. there are some websites that provide opportunity to make money right away. steadyapp.com
00:56:26 Carin-Isabel Knoop (HBS): yeah we are getting tired of grumpy teams
00:56:51 Steve Rader: No patience for “Dilbert” corporate culture

00:57:18 Chris Link Duarte: Oh definitely @ Carin! Thank you for sharing. I have been doing a lot of work around the issues within the DEI community and the conflict occurring between the older community of experts and new philosophies around deconstruction of old systems and approaches. There is no consistent set of rules and there are harms happening within racial and sexual minority communities. The new DEI is actually harmful in ways. Love this. We should connect again!
00:58:20 Steve Rader: Thanks Tammy! Amazing insights from this study. I’m afraid I have to drop off for another meeting. Thanks all!
