Generally speaking, humans dislike change. And the hard part is that change is a constant. The New Year brings change and with that a little anxiety. It is hard for people to change. Really hard for businesses to change. Monumental to industries to change.
Last month, I delivered a webinar that was future-casting some developments in the recruiting space. This industry is oft maligned for being very slow to change. So, naturally I was asked how long it would take HR to adapt to my topic…or anything for that matter? It was at that moment I realized there are a few ways change can happen in a frictionless way. I realized this because I was part of the industry shift that took recruiting online. Getting people to stop using newspapers and start using online job postings was one of my earliest roles in the industry.
