“Great Organization Skills Needed. Duties May Vary”: The new hiring strategy for 21st Century organizations

Sixty-six percent: that’s the number of new hires reported by the Drucker Institute as either marginal or complete failures. It is also the percentage of employees that Gallup reports as being disengaged or “actively disengaged” across North America. The same percentage of hiring managers believe recruiters don’t understand the jobs they are filling and almost as many believe hiring managers don’t understand recruiting.

These shocking statistics present serious challenges for organizations that have been hiring for a 20th Century, industrial model rather than for the realities of 21st Century organizations.

Mark FedermanSpeaker Mark Federman will discuss this state of affairs and what it means for organizations. What if we consider every employee transition – arrival, promotion, reorganization, and resignation/termination – as an act that transforms the contemporary organization? What could be the impact on recruiting, development, advancement, and even termination if we view them as opportunities for culture transformation and organizational change?

Join Mark for a complimentary breakfast event at SEEC’s Nadal Management Centre to hear how organizations can move from “Who is the best person to fill this job?” to “Who is the best person to help us become our aspirations?”

Also on hand for this event will be Marilyn Laiken, program director of SEEC's Masters Certificate in Organization Development and Change, who will join the discussion and answer questions about the program.

Mark Federman earned his PhD in Adult Education with research in contemporary organization theory, studying consequences for leadership, management, and organization culture and behaviour. After developing the curriculum for a Master in Contemporary Leadership degree, he began a private practice in Leadership, Executive, and Career Transition Coaching, and Organization Culture

Schulich Executive Education Centre

We are a strategic business unit of the Schulich School of Business at York University in Toronto. Our role within the school is to provide lifelong learning for the development of professionals and executives long after their full-time education has been completed and they are in the work force.

Because few of us have the same job for life, we constantly have to re-invent ourselves, learn new skills and adapt to the changing marketplace and business environment. Today’s professionals and executives must be able to quickly develop and fine-tune personal business skills to adapt and grow.
