BraveNewTalent is a social recruitment platform operating in the UK and moving into the US. I caught up with CEO and founder Lucia Tarnowski at Davos.
The startup is built around the idea that people want to follow companies they might want to work for in the future, and companies in turn want to educate potential hires about how they work.
There's a new world of work coming. There's no doubt that work is moving to the contingent model, with people bringing in skills for the short-term, completing projects and moving on. Jobs have changed, and so have their requirments. The skills an employer needs now, they won't need in the future. The shift to the knowledge sector has created a recruiting problem.
One of the best things about working for a large company should be the vast array of roles and opportunities throughout the firm. Yet, for most people, it’s easier to find a job across town than across the hall.
So people tend to stagnate in less-than-fulfilling roles. Or leave. And tremendous personal and corporate potential are squandered as a result.
