Next Generation HR - Part I
DECEMBER 08, 2020
The rate of business transformation is accelerating as organizations try to stay ahead of turbulent events – not least during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. HR has a key role to play in this transformation ensuring the organization has the leadership, talent and culture it needs to lean into an uncertain future.
Ironically, HR operating models have hardly changed, and this stasis threatens to prevent the function from becoming a proactive business partner. Comprehensive research by The Conference Board reveals that leading businesses are urgently looking for new ways to deploy HR for maximum flexibility and impact. This webcast provides examples of how HR organizations are dismantling outmoded structures and silos to work in increasingly “fluid” ways across the enterprise. Sergei Polianski, Global Agile Operations Lead, People & Culture at JT International will share the story of its transformation journey, especially into Agile HR.
After attending this webcast, you will be able to:
- Understand the urgency for HR to deploy in more flexible ways to support business transformation or help the organization navigate through disruptive change
- Gain insight into how leading companies ensure a tight alignment between the business and people strategy so that HR can both enhance and create new people-based value
