In the midst of what many have dubbed “The Great Resignation” many employers are struggling to fill job openings.
Fixing this issue isn’t easy. According to entrepreneur Gary Bolles, standard recruitment strategies are ill-equipped to handle the future of work. He says traditional recruitment pipelines are highly dependent upon poorly designed processes that usually don’t benefit the hirer or the worker. Instead, he says startups should focus on expanding their network.
“You want a high functioning network with a range of different people who can all solve a wide variety of different kinds of problems,” Bolles says.
Bolles is the author of The Next Rules of Work, a book that helps leaders understand why traditional notions about work inhibit their ability to address new problems. On Jan. 13, 2022, Bolles will be hosting a webinar for Founders Network members where he’ll discuss pandemic-era strategies for hiring and growing people.
