Expanding the ‘document upload’ feature on its platform, Microsoft-owned job-seeking platform LinkedIn is now allowing users to upload PDFs, PowerPoint Presentations and other documents directly to their Feeds as well as within group posts.

“Members can now upload documents and presentations such as PDFs and PowerPoints directly to the feed, in a group, or to the LinkedIn Page, where people can read and comment, sparking further discussion,” Margaret Taormina, Product Manager, LinkedIn wrote in a blog-post on Tuesday.

In July 2018, LinkedIn Messaging got the ability to allow attaching documents and since November 2018 the platform had allowed companies to upload PDFs and PowerPoint presentations on their official pages.

Nearly 92 per cent talent professionals in India consider ‘People Analytics’ to pave the way for the future of HR and recruiting while 95 per cent of them believe employee experience will shape the future of HR in the coming years, a new report by Microsoft-owned LinkedIn said on Thursday.

The employee experience (EX) is the ‘in’ thing which represents a wider view of the traditional human resource function with empathy is at its core.

Focusing on EX increases retention and productivity, meets high expectations of younger workers, and attracts more candidates in this tight labour market, the findings showed.

While 77 per cent of talent professionals in India said they’re increasingly focused on employee experience to increase employee retention, 44 per cent felt the lack of leadership’s focus and prioritization is a significant barrier to improving a company’s employee experience.

While 96 per cent talent professionals are placing their bets on internal recruiting to shape the future of HR and recruiting in India, 83 per cent felt internal recruiting improves employee retention.

“Seventy per cent of talent professionals in India say employees find internal opportunities listed on an internal job board,” the report mentioned.

Carving out new career paths, offering flexible benefits, developing longevity strategies and promoting informal interactions across generations are some of the ways in which companies are driving a radical explosion in workforce age diversity.
