Welcome to our first episode of Start Smart! In this episode, my co-host Shelia and I dive straight into some fascinating research conducted by Korn Ferry’s report ‘The Future of Work Trends in 2022: The new era of humanity’. We hone in on three trends from the report that stood out to us: Scarcity, Individuality and Inclusivity. We also uncover some key insights from ‘National Trends in Disability Employment (nTIDE)’ and Deloitte’s ‘Inclusivity - Unleashing the Power of All’.  


Tune in to this conversation as we explore the Great Resignation, auditing your talent acquisition strategy, communicating your culture through job ads, and dealing with unused technology that’s just sitting on the ‘shelf’.
