It’s that time of year again: Time to reflect on the previous 12 months while committing to do better and be better over the next year. For HR executives and practitioners, the new year will build upon innovations while forging new paths that put people at the center of strategy. With the onslaught of digitalization and globalization, CHROs are in a tough spot. Their mandate from governance to operational executives demand the efficiencies and scale of an orchestra. Yet, the war for talent, a heavy focus on the workforce experience and need to compete on continuous disruption all combine for leaders and individual contributors to desire the innovation and flexibility of a jazz band.
Companies spend 15% to 50% of their operating budgets on paying their workforce. Add in the costs of talent acquisition, development and infrastructure and the numbers continue to sour. Moving from a mindset of ‘expense’ to ‘investment’ and with a broader view of the workforce, HR continues to be on the road of transformation. Informed and influenced by digitalization, globalization, consumer technology and changing workforce demographics, the HR function is evolving to include skills in the internet of things, alternative development and succession planning, and the role of programs such as diversity and inclusion in paving the path for the business of the future.
Join this radio show as we discuss the highlights of the HCM market in 2016 and where CHROs have opportunities to do better and be better in 2017 and beyond. From who to hire and how to enable leaders to harness talent to workforce demographics and more, we will explore key business trends and the technology and workforce processes disruptions that will shape the next 12 months and beyond.
