Digital Rise Also in Management
Management insights are changing and manager doors becoming more transparent
4.0 Industrial Revolution is evolving management approach in Turkey and around the world. People no longer want to see the boss who is away, sitting in his own office, with a huge desk in front of him. Instead they prefer operational and accessible managers. The new generation of employees want to work with an executive they respect and is accessible to them even if they are at the top of the management pyramid.
Today's technology encourages us to rate and comment on everything. We are constantly rating the service we receive from restaurants, hotels, etc. Now not only employees, but managers are also rated by their team.
Increasingly more educated professionals go abroad and experience the different business cultures. They have the chance to see new forms of management in America, Europe and England. Then they see the managers standing in the heart of the office, not in separate rooms.
Laws of the Digital Era Determine the Most Popular Positions
The digital sector is becoming important day by day. Meanwhile FMCG and health sector is also on the rise. Also recently, in Turkey especially engineering and sales engineering are the most demanded professions.
Finance is the backbone of companies. Not only in uncertainty and crisis periods but also in the bright periods of the company, CFO'S are very important. By analysing what goes well and what goes bad, measures are taken and a plans are drawn. Even during periods when internal restrictions are being applied, finance is the last section that comes to mind. While the sales departments can be discarded much easier, finance continues to maintain its importance and place within the company. For instance, multinational corporations in Europe aggregate their financial divisions under one roof.
Innovations Help Recruitment
Digital methods used to communicate companies and candidates are becoming increasingly important. With digital tools, the process of examining candidates is progressing more successfully. For example, a PageGroup unit in Barcelona is dealing only with digital recruitment and they provide services to all of Europe, including Turkey from a single centre.
It is observed that recruitment and counselling is still a business that must be carried out by human means. Though many artificial intelligence parameters and forecasting systems are used in the business world, it is not predicted that the human factor will lose its influence in this sector within the next 10 years. Companies looking for a financial director or marketing director would like to work with a consultant who has done 5 successful job placements before and with an opportunity to understand the anticipations and profile of the institution, instead of a machine. Face-to-face interview is considered the most effective method. Because, during the interview, there is a chance to examine the behaviour and to know the candidate better. It is observed that the main use of technology in recruitment is in communication and in reaching candidates and companies.
For example; companies such as Amazon and Booking.com and travel agencies have benefited from technology more than the recruitment sector. Thus, companies know through technology when, how and by which means they should reach people. They have the opportunity to catch them when they're in front of their computer, or just on their phones on the subway. They are very successful in identifying their campaigns and reaching the target groups. They are very good at using side ads on websites. When we adapt these methods to the recruitment sector, it will not be surprising that a job announcement that is right for you will appear on the screen while surfing the internet in the future. This kind of advertising work is usually used by big digital players like Amazon and Booking. When we evaluate their use of technology, it is possible to say that such institutions are a few years ahead of the recruitment sector.
Speed in the Foreground of Recruitment
Speed has gained great importance in the recruitment sector. We can say that recruitment process is faster rather than harder. Especially in recent years, recruitment companies have reached the speed where they can offer 5 different alternative candidates just in a week. Recruitment firms such as PageGroup that are specialized on the basis of sectors and with a pool of candidates and talents, can meet the needs of the company much faster.
The world is getting more and more IT-centric. Everything is connected to each other. Teens who are now 18 years old and will start their education, should choose areas in the IT sector for their career path. The IT sector and the need for new talent is rapidly growing. Everywhere in the world, the need for IT, Java developers, Big Data and data security experts is striking. A well-trained IT specialist has a higher chance than ever to find a job in Istanbul, in Paris or Japan.
