Human Capital & Career Management with Dr. Constantine Kiritsis

 

Masterclass

Theme: Know the trends & manage your career in the 21st  century “workplace” 

 

What has changed?

These past 10 years have been very interesting and challenging in terms of employment, training and education, mainly due to the incorporation of the internet that offered cheap communication and a series of numerous new opportunities.

Employees: Know the facts, learn how to stay employable!

Employers: Know what the future of work will look like to attract the right talent!

  • What are companies looking for?
  • Technical vs Behavioral competencies.
  • “Soft” vs “Hard skills”
  • Do I need a degree or a professional qualification?
  • How often should I update my knowledge?

A few facts

  • The talent pool has become larger than ever as we are competing globally, not locally,
  • How the “war on talent” is being won by “talent”,
  • Diversity is increasing requiring a global mindset and cultural appreciation,
  • The number of academic degree holders has increased significantly making the issue of differentiation and “standing out” more difficult,
  • University education is not keeping its traditional promise of helping graduates find jobs,
  • Professional Qualifications are becoming more and more popular in a wider variety of disciplines, offering alternatives to professionals who want to differentiate,
  • The term “Job” is being replaced by “work” and – in many instances, “project”,
  • Employees are switching employers faster than ever, thus requiring them to be agile and produce results faster,
  • Professionals need to update their knowledge at a minimum pace of every 2 years due to changes,
  • Free-lance, and personal branding is on the rise compared to the situation in the 20th century,
  • Behavioral aspects, communication skills and other “soft” skills are at the forefront of performance appraisals in organisations,
  • Employees are creating their own holistic personal brand through social media (i.e. linkedin)…

      …the list goes on…
