The Future of Work
for Vedior at Grand Hotel, Rome
21 May 2007
In the superb surroundings of this wonderful Grand Hotel, Richard Scase gave a Keynote presentation to the global senior leadership team of Vedior, one of the world’s most successful talent recruitment corporations. He spoke of growing talent shortages driven by demographic trends, the failure of education systems and the growing talent demands of the world’s emerging markets. Qualifications were no longer a measure of employable talent and for this reason, recruitment agencies would need to develop highly sophisticated screening tools if they were to provide the services expected by their client companies. He concluded his talk by outlining the major characteristics of high-performing entrepreneurial corporations that gave priority to recruiting ‘non-conformist’, creative talent.
