Editor’s Note: 2020—A Clear Vision?

HRO Today

By Debbie Bolla

2020 is poised to be a year of transformation. I recently had the opportunity to co-lead a think-tank session at our HRO Today Forum EMEA in Dublin with Julie Sharp and transformation was on her mind. Sharp is a seasoned, senior-level HR executive who has headed up HR across the globe including in APAC at Citibank Australia. With so much technological innovation infiltrating the marketplace and an increasing level of pressure to execute an effective people strategy, HR needs to prepare for change. Sharp says there are two questions that HR needs to asking to be ready for the future of work.

1. How has the HR profession reacted to the complex changes in the area of digital science and technology? The answer is a bit unclear. A recent survey from KMPG found that some forward-looking HR leaders are working on strategic plans to implement new platforms in the areas of analytics and automation. Two-thirds of respondents agree that HR has undergone or is undergoing a digital transformation, but only 40 per cent of HR leaders have a digital workforce plan in place.

HRO Today Association Update: TAlent Acquisition—TAke Note

HR Association

By D. Zachary Misko

We talk a lot about talent acquisition at HRO Today. It tends to be a common thread for managers, service and technology providers, candidates, and, of course, HR. For several years, we’ve frequently heard people say, “It’s all about the people” or “Employees are your biggest asset.” And I don’t disagree. People are at the heart of so much that is important in the world of human resources. But as processes, protocols, life, people, business, and technology continue to evolve, the HRO Today Association must evolve, too.

Think of it this way: From a TA perspective, organizations will ask questions around which jobs are better suited for people and which others can be handled by automation. However, from a talent management perspective, managers will be asking how this new world of work will impact company culture. And L&D officers will wonder how automation will shape training and development plans.
