For the Weekend: New Ways Working Report

The New Ways Working Report is definitely worth a read if you haven’t seen it as yet.

Common throughout the report is a clear separation between what was and what will be. The report highlights that the future of work has a strong focus on organisational purpose, creation of shared values, and the rise of the employee.

The rise of the employee

As a theme, we are seeing that employees will choose employers  and that selection will be based on shared-values and social impact. Equally, social networks are playing a bigger role with employees utilising Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and the like to publicly call out organisations on bad practice and culture.

On the flip side, there is a trend towards employers and customers using social networks to celebrate employees and create company celebrities.

Social networks being such a part of daily life now means it’s normal for us to experience instant-access to feedback and this, in turn, is supporting the demise of ‘annual performance’ reviews. Feedback will be instant and two-way and employees will relish this.

H.R. teams will focus on brand-conscious recruitment models with ‘customer-experience’ at the centre. At the same time a change in the type of work to more outcomes-based roles will drive autonomy and decision making for employees.

So while there are a good 80 pages here to immerse yourself in, the insights are valid, the case-studies are strong, and you will undoubtedly walk away thinking differently.

Grab a drink, put your favourite tunes on, find some sunshine and settle in – this one is worth the time.

What our clients say

“Ronny & the Onset Group helped us scale our team in the early stages of our growth, finding a number of talented engineering candidates to join our Development team. The Onset Group are highly professional and a pleasure to work with.”

Georgia Punch
HR & Operations

“We have been working with the Onset Group for the past few years, helping us secure both contract and permanent staff across multiple technical areas. They always ensure they have our business’ needs in mind and it’s great working with a partner that truly understands the technical space that we are in. Of all of the recruiters I have met or worked with over the years, I couldn’t recommend this group any more.”

Paul Madani
Head of Data and Technology

“IPG Mediabrands have built a solid, trusting working relationship with the Onset Group over the past few years. We are very selective on who we partner with regarding our recruitment needs. The Onset Group have proven time and time again, they absolutely deserve a spot on our PSA. They understand our business, they deliver, they follow up, they’re smart and they are professional.”

Lisa Gray
Head of Human Resources

“I’ve worked in the product community in Sydney for just 3 years and the Onset are my go-to folk for product talent (and opportunities). Once in my role I worked with the team at Onset to build out my product team of 6 over the next year. So I’ve experienced the quality and expertise from both sides of the engagement.”

Jennifer Flynn
Group Manager, Product Management

“Working with The Onset was fantastic. They spent the time with me up front on understanding not only the requirements of the role but also the qualities and skill sets needed to fill the role well. The candidates provided were really strong and led to hires who have not only helped us fill roles but also enhance our overall company culture by introducing us to top quality candidates. Thanks Onset!”

Yaniv Klein
Product Director

“We partnered with The Onset, a leading IT recruitment agency, explained the journey we were on, and asked them to sell our vision to the Sydney market in our search for high quality developers. It was important that the people we chose not only had high technical skills but were a good cultural fit and understood where oOh! was going”

Andy Mcquarrie
Chief Technology Officer

“…by taking time to understand our unique hiring requirements, both from the start and as our needs have evolved. At Digital Asset, we’re looking for engineers and product managers with a specialized mix of skills and industry experience, for example, a strong background in financial services, or knowledge of functional programming languages. Onset has helped us find experienced candidates who are not only highly qualified but also inspired to work with a firm like ours”

Drew Harding
Senior Delivery Manager

“In addition to running the search and recruitment process they helped us to shape the role and were able to guide us through what was happening in the market and the experiences of other high growth companies.”

Rachel Debeck
Chief Operating Officer

“It was a pleasure working with Danielle to source a full stack developer for our company. She put real effort into understanding what we were looking for and helped us find the right candidate. Plus helped us find the first female developer!”

Antony Francis
Team Lead

“Onset has been partnering with Haventec for over three years. The team at Onset have the great ability to connect with our team and understand our business and culture to be able to place employees that fit our team like a glove. It takes great talent to recognise the unique needs of each business and to be able to deliver on them so well”
