Transformation in 3, 2, 1…

From the impact of digitalisation to the changing role of the HR function, four HR leaders share their key priorities in the new world of work.

By Simon Kent

Rarely has the HR function faced such a time of upheaval and challenge. Caught within a rapidly changing world and facing disruptions ranging from digitalisation to demographic shifts, HR managers and directors are looked to for support, direction, and solutions for their business’ most important asset: people. Yet even with an increasingly important role in the workplace, the transition from HR directorship to board-level status cannot be taken for granted. Here, leading HR directors tackle pressing questions in order to prepare for the future of HR.

Cognizant of Change

In 2007, Pradeep Bhaskaran joined Cognizant to oversee HR for 10 countries around the world. Today, that number is 47. As head of HR for global growth markets, Bhaskaran is responsible for more than 60,000 associates across 52 nationalities that speak 34 languages. And those figures are only set to grow.

Engaging With Integrity

By adopting four management practices, employers can ensure their workforce remains engaged and productive.

By Simon Kent

If there’s one constant running through all HR agendas, it is the task of getting the best from employees. Today’s labour market, especially across EMEA, is candidate-led. There are quite simply not enough appropriately skilled people to fill the supply of available jobs, and as technology continues to evolve, this situation will only become more pronounced. How can organisations be certain to retain their workers and get the best from the talent they already have?

In today’s competitive business world, talent has the potential to be the greatest strength of an organisation and one of its most powerful sources of competitive advantage. But developing a top talent pool requires more than just a good recruitment strategy: culture, technology, data insights, benefi ts, learning, engagement, and more are emerging as top considerations.

Editor’s Note: A Clear Vision?

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 the HRO Today Forum EMEA with Julie Sharp and transformation was on her mind. Sharp is a seasoned, senior-level HR executive who has headed up HR for such firms as Bank of Ireland, ING, and 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. She asked the audience a few different questions and provided some food for thought.
