Before listing the great examples of employer branding, I should say that it is hotting up in the unfortunately named “war for talent”. Today’s sought-after workers have a lot more choices and opportunities than they did just a few years ago. It has never been easier to find available opportunities as a candidate, and, it has never been so easy to be found by headhunters. Our workings lives have changed fundamentally in half a generation.ByEdward

Welcome to the RattleBerry RoundUp! This is a weekly series where we select a trending topic and round up the latest and greatest articles to keep you up to date. We hope you enjoy it! Let us know either way on Twitter, Facebookor LinkedIn. This week is all about UX - research, design and how to learn more about it. For those of you who may be unfamiliar, UX is the acronym for user experience. This term is defined as "the overall experience of a person using a product such as a website or computer application, especially in terms of how easy or pleasing it is to use." Creating the best UX possible is at the centre of digital transformation, and is one of the fastest growing specialties in tech today.ByEdward
Welcome to the RattleBerry RoundUp! This is a weekly series where we select a trending topic and round up the latest and greatest articles to keep you up to date. We hope you enjoy it! Let us know either way on Twitter, Facebook or LinkedIn. This week we are taking on the topic of the future of recruiting. This is what RattleBerry is all about. As the corporate world undergoes digital transformation, something to realize is that there will not only be changes in the way companies do business but also in the way companies attract and hire talent. The recruiting industry along with HR departments the world over are being rocked by the shift to digital. Everything from the way a candidate applies for a job to the way an employee is defined is shifting, and it feels as though we are on the brink of a revolution. Just as in commerce where all the power has shifted to the customer, to stay relevant in recruiting (especially for tech) we must realize that all the power has shifted to the candidate.
Focusing on digital transformation and experience RattleBerry is a freshly squeezed six months old today and we thought it would be a good time to take a step back and see where we have gotten to and what has changed from our initial plan. We have made two hires to our own team and have been lucky to get to work on some really senior recruitment briefs in UX, eCommerce and digital delivery/ project management. So, we are ahead of schedule and that is great, but I have noticed a slight but important shift in the areas we recruit for.
Last week I wrote a piece on the intersection of technology and organisational transformation in this connected age. That post summarised the broad categories of digital experience and digital change. I am now going to explain what the associated functional areas do and the kind of job titles that are found in each area. The goal is to give you a deeper understanding of not only what kind of work we do but also what kind of skills companies now need to nurture and hire to accomplish their digital transformation.ByEdward
