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, benefits, learning, engagement, and more are emerging as top considerations.

Chief HR officers are responsible for managing all of these elements of the talent strategy whilst delivering business results. To honor the contributions of these incredible leaders, HRO Today is proud to present the 2019 Leaders of Distinction Award winners and the HRD of the Year Award winners.

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 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.

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.

“Technology is here right now. What is HR’s job?” asked Nancy Hauge, CHRO of Automation Anywhere. “It’s about defining our leadership role as this workforce changes. Internally, we’re going to recruit for digital colleagues. Soon, we’ll have 3 million digital colleagues deployed across the world.”
