Major shifts brought about by Covid-19 included leveraging modern technologies that are data-centric, artificially intelligent, and virtually delivered to enable strategic talent decisions. Many organisations are creating internal talent marketplaces to attract, retain and develop employees. These talent marketplaces match employees to opportunities and potential roles based on their skills, interests, and preferences for a personalised career development experience.
- The latest trends in internal mobility and the use of AI-based talent analytics to enable a talent marketplace.
- Finding ways to measure employees’ potential to succeed in various roles and responsibilities to build a robust internal pipeline of potential candidates using AI, data analytics and other methods.
- Exploring ways to identify multiple growth opportunities that could be offered to employees wanting to grow in their career (from mentoring opportunities to stretch assignments to lateral moves to keep staff engaged in their career growth).
- How to visualise and communicate clear paths for employees to entice them to not just stick around but broaden their skills and drive their personal development.
- Practical ways to implement talent marketplaces in organisations.

Career Solutions Consultant – I/O Psychologist
Jessica likes to help. Her second-year social psychology lecturer informed her class of budding psychologists that means that they all have the same fundamental flaw or ‘need’ in their personality traits. She is ok with that. Her career has been varied but as a constant has been her requirement to help individuals, teams and organisations.
She is an organisational psychologist and works in sales and delivery. She’s managed to combine her passion of helping at all levels of an organisation with her love of technology. Now, whilst one interpretation of her role is selling an HR technology platform, she identifies with something slightly different.
She loves being able to ‘activate’ an organisation by using technology as an enabler. People are not robots, and she loves to talk with clients about how they can provide a workplace where human beings can work intuitively and happily. She believes we can only do this if we truly make the most of knowing what employees would love to be able to tell their employers; this may range from how they could see themselves doing, moving more in their current role, move sideways to a different division or how they aspire to navigate their career.
Her favourite part of her job would be the happy marriage of her understanding of organisational psychology, to a client’s business challenge and being able to suggest a solution for their consideration. She firmly believes in providing a solution where it could be of assistance. Having an ethical business relationship is of utmost importance to her personal values.
