Bruce Morton

Global Head of Innovation

As a distinguished thought leader and global innovator, Bruce Morton has over three decades of experience within the human capital and workforce management industry. Throughout this time he has seen a massive shift in the way organizations manage their greatest asset: people.

 As a sought after and renowned international speaker, Bruce has stimulated audiences across Europe, US and Asia with his fresh and innovative approach to acquiring top talent. Bruce shares his in-depth knowledge on recruitment and retention with new age media on a global scale. He has designed, implemented and managed some of the largest resourcing solutions across many different parts of the globe, saving companies millions of dollars while securing the very best talent.

 In his current role, Bruce serves as Global Head of Innovation for Allegis Global Solutions. He was promoted from Chief Marketing Officer in January 2013. The Innovation team leads and champions ‘enterprise innovation’ efforts across Allegis Global Solutions. The function embodies the whole process of innovation: from new services and product idea generation, sales presentations, internal and external evangelism, digital and social media strategies, lead generation and face to the industry through conferences and speaking engagements. 

 Prior to his role at Allegis Global Solutions, Bruce owned e3 Unlimited, a talent acquisition and development organization managing a breadth of staffing-related needs for global companies.

 Bruce’s latest innovation is that of a dynamic integrated technology platform that, for the first time, integrates top-of-class digital recruitment technologies that create engaged living talent communities; diverging from traditional static methodologies. Bruce was recognized as Thought Leader of the Year at the 2013 European HRO 'Be Transformed' Awards, and again as Thought Leader of the Year at the 2014 North American HRO Today Forum.

Driving Productivity Through Competency Alignment

Business needs change and skill sets have to keep up. But how do you know if you are making the right changes and developing the correct skills as roles and responsibilities grow? And how do organizations transition from job-centered to people-centered as routine tasks shift to knowledge-based work? Enter the ideas of competency mapping, skills assessment and 360-degree feedback. Each of these can help you fill any gaps by developing your talent holistically and completely.

During our time together, Mark will introduce the concept of competencies and how they differ from skills, he will discuss competency mapping in the workplace, demonstrate a competency card sort and share some immediate implementable tools and techniques. These tools will include attracting, on-boarding, developing, and retaining top-talent.
