We Have Officially Landed. Now What?
If you have not read the new trend report from Deloitte, I encourage you to read it.(124 pages...I am no way near done) Really insightful stuff for those pushing for a new HR or whatever it's going to be called. My challenge to all of us is this. Seize the moment and take partners with those thought leaders who have been at the forefront of this change. We no longer can look at business from an HR compliance, process perspective. The change has been here and many of us have not been paying attention. To quote a friend and mentor (Ryan Festerling) How cool is this! Embrace our position as influencer's and approach this with an open mind. What a ride this is and will continue to be.
Amidst these changes, the HR function is taking on a new role as
the steward and designer of these new people processes. The mission of the HR leader is evolving from that of “chief talent executive”
to “chief employee experience officer.” HR is being asked to simplify its processes, help employees manage the flood of information at work, and build a culture of collaboration, empowerment, and innovation. This means that HR is redesigning almost everything it does—from recruiting to performance management to on-boarding to rewards systems. To do this, our research suggests that HR must upgrade its skills to include the areas of design thinking, people analytics, and behavioral economics.
Now what? embrace, empower, and most of all surround yourselves with diverse thinkers and a team to push you forward...Cheers...Bob
