We believe in the balance! SEE New Talent targets university students and professionals working at corporations. We join TECH and BUSINESS people and get them to collaborate and learn from each other at SEE New Talent hackathon-like events that last 1-5 days. A simple approach based on sprints and challenges helps them to understand agile methodologies, innovation sourcing and how they can understand each other and become more efficient.
How does it work?
We organise hackathons with challenges built around the current problems your organisation is facing. Participants work on a predesigned structure that helps them in approaching the projects in a new, innovative way. The goal is to take everyone out of their original boxes and highlight different talents from various departments.
During SEE we work with teams, to approach projects from a little bit more innovative and digital perspective, exposing them to some new tools, and train them on scrum methodologies. Each participant is exposed to alternative ways to manage projects, approach clients, prioritise time and tasks. The original focus is on education and individual development but very often SEE can be treated as an innovation sourcing project.
SEE is an innovative recruitment tool. We use it as probably one of the most efficient and cost effective ways to source a new talent. If recruitment is the focus, in addition to employees we invite young people, who are in our database. Those potential candidates can bring innovation, showcase their skills and learn more about the organisation. Using our simple evaluation model that can be tweaked depending on organisational goals, your HR department and other employees can evaluate participants. Based on the assessment during the hackathon they could be offered placements, apprenticeships or job offers.
