During our podcast series, the role of HR has been central to many of our conversations. As the custodian for people, HR arguably has a more important role than ever in charting a course into the next phase of the world of work. Over the last 50 years, HR as a function has been through many iterations and there are more column inches to read than is feasible on what the future of HR looks like.
In the past HR has perhaps been its worst enemy and has viewed its future and relevance through its own lens a little too much. As we come through the pandemic, its clear the world of work wont be the same and a major driver of that change is the workforce. A group of people who in parts of the world are voting with their feet. Its argued that the Great Resignation in some quarters has been over played and that may be the case, but we have other data points to show the issue in front of us. Just look at Gallup data over the last 10 years on employee engagement – people may not be leaving in the numbers quoted, but it doesn’t mean the people working for you are engaged and happy.
So I think as we head into this decade, there is a real opportunity for the future of HR and the future workforce to converge – to create a sustainable future for organisations built on a workplace experience that engages and enables individuals to be their brilliant best every day.
Today – we will be tapping into the thoughts of Tom and Mark who both operate at this intersection every day.
