Hays Journal is a bi-annual publication providing global insight and news for HR, recruitment professionals and hiring managers on the ever-changing world of work.

In the latest edition of Hays Journal:

Not a day goes by when you don’t hear of a new innovation or technology advancement that impacts the way we work. The pace of this change is increasing and so is the need for a workforce that can adapt to the new technology and develop new skills to exploit the technology on offer. 

Also in this issue:

A new reality: Virtual reality technology has been around for decades. Can its potential in the workplace finally be realised?

Embedding customer-led culture: In a world of social media and online reviews, positive interactions with customers are more important than ever. How can it be built into a culture? 

New age thinking: Generation Z are now entering the workforce. With them, they bring new skills and challenges. How can businesses help them adjust? The civil engineering and construction company Costain explains some of the changes they have already made in acknowledgement of the different needs of this generation.

A different vision: Blind recruitment is often touted as the key to addressing unconscious bias. A government-led group of public and private sector organisations, including the NHS, the BBC, EY, HSBC and Virgin Money, now use ‘name-blind’ recruitment for graduates and apprentices.
