Four strategies that build synergies with HR and help achieve upward mobility.
By Maria Bunting Smedley
In my 20-plus year career as an HR executive, I’ve witnessed first-hand that as professionals assemble their career development resources to help weather the ups and downs of climbing the corporate ladder, the value of an HR partnership is often overlooked. But it shouldn’t be: HR is responsible for creating policies and crafting the framework that drives compensation, promotions, succession planning, career development, and talent management decisions. However, the “power” of HR is derived from three major components: access, information, and influence.

Expanding into new international markets is fraught with difficulties. From aligning cultures to ensuring talent gaps are filled, multinational organisations can struggle to adapt to the norms and realities of their many areas of operation. But with the shift of economic activity from Europe and North America to markets in Africa, Asia, and Latin America comes a renewed need to manage global organisations. In fact, according to the McKinsey Global Institute, 400 midsize emerging-market cities, many unfamiliar in the West, will generate nearly 40 per cent of global growth over the next 15 years.

Best practices for managing a remote workforce.
By Jo Deal
Remote work is no longer just for independent entrepreneurs, distant employees, or gig-economy workers. Smart companies are realizing they need to go where the talent is, even if that means hiring someone away from their offices. Remote work also does not exclusively refer to independent employees based away from a main office. It includes employees and teams who communicate and collaborate across multiple company offices—a reality that global organizations have embraced for a long time. Having this physical distance between teams requires companies to adapt and learn how best to manage and motivate when everyone is not in the same building.
A new study shows the top priorities and challenges of CHROs.
By Kim Raymond
The biggest concerns for today’s HR leaders most likely include a few that didn’t exist a couple of years ago: a record-low unemployment rate, medical marijuana, and new immigration restrictions. These are on top of the challenges that already existed—and still do. What this means, which should come as no surprise, is that HR is becoming more challenging and complex seemingly by the minute.

By Deepak Bharadwaj
If Siri and Alexa can order pizza and turn off kitchen lights, then why does it take three emails and a phone call to get something done at work? The stark difference between how personal and professional lives are conducted is becoming more evident by the day. While HR leaders work to give their departments the tools and training to provide high quality service in today’s modern workplace, the road to change is a long, uphill battle.

As digital disruption continues to create waves of change across all major industry sectors and companies pivot to remain competitive, HR leaders are tasked with supporting large-scale strategic shifts.

Three strategies that help managers enable their employees to succeed.
By Amy Leschke-Kahle
At work, a team can mean many things. Organizations can have a team of executives or a team of frontline workers. They can have a hierarchical team, a flatter team, or a dynamic team that brings together contractors and full-time employees from disparate groups or practices depending on the project at hand. Whether it’s in the field of hospitality, technology, or on the shop floor, teams are where work lives. But increasingly, more and more work gets done in groups outside of the organizational chart.
