Talent and HR News Weekly Roundup: Innovative Hiring

In this week's Talent and HR News Weekly Roundup, we're featuring a mix of insight on innovative hiring. Enjoy!

1) A Data-Driven Approach to Group Creativity from Harvard Business Review

“How can you ensure that your company has innovative teams? Though many organizations already use assessment for hiring, leadership development, team-building, and executive coaching, it has not been extended much to hiring and building better innovation teams. Why does this even matter? It matters because innovation requires specific personality types, characteristics, and an environment that engenders psychological safety, to be unleashed. In select studies, innovation teams that leveraged personality types generated 95 times more profit and increased the speed as well as effectiveness of new business development by over 900% compared to their counterparts.”

"This has long been a question brands have tried to definitely answer.

That may make it sound like social media marketing has little benefit, but the report's cursory dismissal doesn't take into account several other factors."

1) The Hot HR Technology Trends Of 2014 from Forbes

"The Information Services Group III, a leading technology insights, market intelligence and advisory services company, recently conducted the ‘Industry Trends in Human Resources Technology and Service Delivery Survey’. Released in February 2014, the survey presents findings, which, while not surprising, should be top of mind for leaders and talent managers everywhere. The survey points to three benefits companies expect to realize from investments in HR tech (quoting from the report): an improved user and candidate experience, access to ongoing innovation and best practices to support the business, and speed of implementation to increase the value of technology to the organization."
