An evolving HR function that doesn't keep up with the rapid change of business is one that fails.
Jas Rai (Managing Partner at Veritas Prime), Mike Theaker (Global Head, HXM Strategy & Innovation Office at SAP) and Tom Holmes (Founding Director at Veran Performance) came together to look at evolving, innovating & revolutionising HR.
2020 shone HR in the limelight more than ever before and to quote Tom, "the role of HR has evolved more in the last 11 months than it has in the last 11 years". The conversation runs through some of the key topics that have been brought to the forefront such as the role of agile and where data-driven decisions fit into strategic business decisions. The role of technology comes to fruition as an enabler for remote working and where it can be used as a facilitator for an enhanced employee experience through the use of data.
The conversation around wellbeing is discussed in detail around both the physical and mental side and HR's role to provide the ability to not just measure but improve the moments that matter.
Challenges becoming opportunities is without a doubt an ongoing trend and the discussion leads to the redesigning of processes for the modern workplace and the development of internal talent.
HR is now raised against a heightened digitalisation benchmark so the drive for a self-service culture has never been needed more.
This video is the first in a series that opens up the discussion on how HR can maintain its responsiveness to change.
