Pulling Back the Curtain

Kevin Wheeler at ERE shares 5 reasons why the traditional workplace is evolving: expectations, choice (not control), focus on employment branding, interest in the candidate experience, and focus on making “lists.”

I couldn’t agree more with his thoughts. When you consider that each of these reasons is impacted by the emergence of social media – it’s a more salient point. Why? Because we now have the ability to pull back the curtain and get a first-hand account of each item on the list.

The tweets almost write themselves:

Is “blank organization” really one of the “Best Places to Work?” or is it just a marketing scheme? Pls. share.

If experiences don’t match the company message – organizations will have challenges. Potential employees indeed now have a choice.
