Why hiring talent from outside your industry can be good for business

Why hiring talent from outside your industry can be good for business
In today’s fluid, dynamic employment market career paths are no longer linear: they can diverge into new directions, and sometimes jump completely from one path to another.

Our recent survey, Hudson Report: Forward Focus 2016, found that across Asia the vast majority of professionals would be willing to change industries for the right role (74% in Hong Kong, 83% in China and 88% in Singapore). It’s clear that job seekers are open to change, willing to take on new opportunities – but are employers equally willing?

 
 
 

Assessing for the best

Assessing for the best
Nothing is more important to an organisation’s long-term health and success than choosing the right people to lead it.

But without a reliable way to gauge leadership potential, too much is left to chance. Assessing for the leadership capabilities your organisation most needs – using methods that are proven to predict performance outcomes – takes away much of the uncertainty. But too often companies fall short on the follow-through.

 
 
 

4 keys to a great leadership strategy

4 keys to a great leadership strategy
When a business is developing its leadership strategy, the first thing it needs to look at is its organisational context. It is only by understanding where the organisation is going and then defining the specific capabilities its leaders need to possess to succeed in that environment, that a business can deliver on its overall business strategy and goals.

Recent Hudson research highlighted a sizeable disconnect across APAC: 90% of HR leaders said leadership was very important to businesses yet only 54% of organisations actually had their own clearly articulated leadership strategy. Even those with a strategy and development programs to build leadership capabilities often miss key details that impact the ultimate success of those programs.
