How to Avoid a Talent Exodus Post-Pandemic Image

How to Avoid a Talent Exodus Post-Pandemic

​​Nobody yet knows what the legacy of COVID-19 will be. HR and recruitment experts are increasingly concerned businesses which do survive this period will face a further crisis in the shape of talent acquisition and retention in ‘the new normal’.​Anxiety about the workforce is not new: a recent PWC study found 80% of CEOs are either extremely or somewhat concerned about their organisation’s ability to access skilled labour in the future. The Covid-19 pandemic exacerbates this problem in two ways: high-quality employees are more essential than ever, as businesses prepare to recover and relaunch; and the lockdown period has given many workers a new level of clarity about their work-life dynamic. The result could be a mass exodus of talent post-pandemic.For example, in a recent poll, 82% of tech professionals say they want their employer to encourage more working from home in the future. This is not necessarily bad news for employers: it is an opportunity to accelerate changes to workplace organisation which were already well underway before 2020 reared its head.From remote working and digital transformation to transparency, communication and support, there needs to be a wholesale rethinking of how successful employers treat their staff and go about their business post-pandemic. Leaders and management must demonstrate how much they value their talent, and provide real incentives for high calibre employees to stick with them. Download our full guideto learn more about the five fundamental ways to avoid a talent exodus and keep you seats filled with the best talent: 1. Consistent Communication 2. Transparency and Openness 3. Adapt and Innovate to meet Employees’ Needs 4. Provide Support and Authority 5. Foreground meaning and Plan for the Long Term​

Alleviate Video Call Fatigue With These Top 5 Tips Image

Alleviate Video Call Fatigue With These Top 5 Tips

​​Many of us are working in a virtual office these days. For professionals working in the technology sector, that might mean more time in front of the camera than you signed up for. Even those who usually have the verve and stamina to withstand back-to-back meetings may experience video call fatigue.Why the video call fatigue?Evolving from social animals, most human communication is non-verbal. In face-to-face conversations, we gain additional meaning from the way people act. We read each other’s hand gestures, body language, and facial expressions to pick up social cues and infer meaning. For most people, it takes little conscious effort to analyze these cues. In real life, we know if someone is fidgeting or looking away frequently that it may be time for a break. Video calling can compromise these deep-rooted skills; the video quality might be poor due to a lousy internet connection, or the person might only be partially in view so you cannot read their posture on hand gestures. Unlike real-life conversations, video calling can require sustained and intense attention to glean meaning. Predominately relying on verbal communication is tiring, according to a study conducted by Marc-Andre Reinhard and Siegfried L. Sporer, creating video call fatigue.Video calling can also force the current public health crisis into the forefront of our minds; prompting anxiety and fatigue. Gianpeiero Petriglieri, Associate Professor of Organisational Behaviour at INSEAD, argues, “The video call is our reminder of the people we have lost temporarily. It is the distress that every time you see someone online, such as your colleagues, that reminds you we should really be in the workplace together.”If you find yourself growing tired from back-to-back video calls, try one of these top 5 tips:  1. Reduce the number of faces A conference call can magnify existing issues with video calling. Commonly used video conferencing software can allow tens to hundreds of people to simultaneously share their video. This forces the central vision of the brain to decipher so many people at once that it can be difficult to concentrate and understand the speaker. Writing in the National Geographic, Julia Sklar says that “the brain becomes overwhelmed by unfamiliar excess stimuli while being hyper-focused on searching for non-verbal cues that it can’t find.” If you are attending a presentation, ask the speaker if they can turn off everyone else’s video. For re-occurring group calls, communicate to whoever is leading the meeting that you are experiencing video call fatigue. Ask if a rule can be set that video is not required, or that callers take it in turns to turn their video on when they are speaking.  2. Create different spacesThe context of our different social roles has collapsed. Today, we meet our colleagues, partners, parents, friends and employers in the same space – our computer window. This phenomenon—known as context collapse—happens when different aspects of our lives that are normally physically detached are combined to blur separation boundaries. In turn, context collapse can have negative psychological effects and the attenuation of self-identity. This is also why video calls with friends and family can also be tiring; they become associated with work and obligation.Now more than ever, we need to find ways to create buffers between different aspects of our lives. Our environment affects our decision-making and our concentration. Research finds that a work environment activates cognitive resources and association relating to work behavior; increasing decision-making abilities and concentration. If you can, create different spaces at home for your personal and professional life – even if that just means changing ends on the kitchen table or never working from the couch. Likewise, try to avoid answering text messages from friends or family during work. Creating transition periods between video calls will also prevent fatigue. Whether doing a bit of exercise, making a drink, or stretching – try a new activity between calls to help refresh yourself. 3. Give your eyes a breakWe hardly blink when we stare at screens compared to face-to-face interactions. One study found that blinking decreases by 66% from an average of 18 blinks per minute. This can cause our eyes to get more dry, irritated and tired than normal in what is known as ‘computer vision syndrome’ or digital eye strain, which 60-90% of office workers suffer varying degrees of. Other signs to look out for are blurred vision or tensions headaches. What can do you do to combat it? Try the ’20-20-20’ rule: every 20 minutes take 20 seconds to look at something 20 feet away. If you’re not sure of distance, just try and find something that is furthest from view to focus on. It’s also recommended that you take a break from all your digital devices every two hours for 15 minutes so that your eyes can have a rest. Try to position yourself where natural light is not reflecting harshly on your screen. If that isn’t possible, ask your employer if they can provide anti-glare filters; removable panels that fit over your computer screen and help prevent glare. 4. Turn off your cameraUnlike real-life conversations, video calls force you to stare at your own face for long periods of time. For some, this can be an unwelcome distraction by causing worry about your own appearance or how you are coming across. According to media and business psychologist Charlotte Armitage, “The additional psychological processing involved in attending to one’s own behavior and actions, as mirrored by the online platform, can be draining for a whole number of reasons. At the very least, it adds an additional level of stimuli that you wouldn’t have had in a face to face meeting.”Consider switching off your video, particularly if you are in listening mode or are being presented too. Several studies show that people listen more attentively to phone calls and also experience less stress, as it more closely mirrors a real-life conversation rather than feeling they are giving a performance. If you can’t turn off your camera, consider moving your screen off to the side, instead of straight ahead. This can help you concentrate better by focusing on listening rather than watching. 5. Ask if a task really needs a meetingUltimately, the only way to prevent video call fatigue is to reduce their amount. Next time you are about to schedule a meeting, or are invited to one, ask yourself if this needs to be a video call. In fact, does this task need a meeting at all? Not all decisions require a meeting, so think whether you can move a project forwards via email, chat, or even a quick phone call. With many of us working from home, fears about productivity, belonging, or even visibility may prompt us to get in front of the camera. Save yourself and your colleagues from video fatigue by hitting pause on those calendar invites.​To learn more, download How to Ace a Virtual Interview, Being Business Critical in the New Virtual Workplace, Hiring Business-Critical Talent Through Video Interviews, or How to Virtually Onboard New Talent.

International Women's Day 2020: An Interview with Nathalie Zetzmann Image

International Women's Day 2020: An Interview with Nathalie Zetzmann

​​The race is on for a gender equal workforce throughout the technology sector. According to the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, only 24% of IT jobs are filled by women and the sector is still heavily male-dominated in Germany. Nathalie Zetzmann, Principal Consultant Data & AI at Glocomms Berlin, discusses the unique position that recruiters play in furthering gender equality in the technology sector.The 2020 International Women’s Day theme is that an equal world is an enabled world. What does that mean to you in the IT industry?We live in a very diverse world. To master the very diverse challenges of this world, in my opinion, we need very diverse viewpoints and different perspectives. That is why everyone should have the same rights and chances to contribute to solutions for the society we live in.Is gender equality a topic that often comes up in conversations with candidates and companies?Especially in the IT industry there are way more male than female actors. Even though all companies wish for diverse teams, it is hard to find enough female candidates to make this possible in the first place. What role can recruiters play in creating an equal world?Recruiters should find out what is important for female candidates in a work environment and let the companies know so that the companies can implement it in their hiring strategy. What advice would you give to a company trying to create a diverse hiring strategy?I would give the advice to companies to listen to what candidates wish for. For example for working mums to be open to new work concepts like home office, flexible working hours or no-core-hour-concepts, so that they can schedule their day as they need to. It seems simple, but there are so many companies that are just not listening to the needs of their employees. If they did, they could win way more candidates in general and be able to have more diverse teams.Nathalie Zetzmann works as a Principal Recruitment Consultant Data & AI at Glocomms Berlin. Grown up in Bavaria, Germany, studied Environmental Engineering and Business Administration and is especially interested in female in tech, medtech and sustainabletech..

How to Look Beyond the CV to Find the Right Talent Image

How to Look Beyond the CV to Find the Right Talent

​While CVs are useful for hiring managers who are looking to employ within the German technology sector in terms of being able to tick the ‘must have’ boxes for required skills, there is a lot they can’t tell you about a candidate. Candidates are also likely to exaggerate about their skills and achievements on a CV, or make out they had more responsibility in a previous role than they actually held. When hiring for new roles in the tech sector, it is more useful to look beyond the CV to find those soft skills and personality traits which will fit in your unique culture and the requirements of your team. A resume, however impressive, cannot tell you if a candidate has enthusiasm, drive or an infectious positive personality. This article will help hiring managers look for these qualities during the recruitment process, and how to test a candidate beyond telling you how good they are, but instead showing you what they are capable of. ​​
