Last year at Silicon Beach, I managed to catch up with Martin Pardey from Hays Recruitment, who were one of the sponsors, to talk about creativity and recruitment. I wanted to find out if the world of work was changing and how to go about finding people who can offer your organisation more creativity.
We discussed:
  • How lots of big organisations are creating innovation hubs and creativity teams
  • That candidates are increasingly looking for creative opportunities in their roles
  • How to recruit for creativity
  • The need to move beyond the CV and the increasing importance of portfolios
  • The blurring line between work and life
  • Gamification as a recruitment tool
  • AI interviews
