“HR at the Speed of the Customer”
We live in an ideas economy; a powerful idea disrupts a decades old industry or a company. These ideas need companies, strategies, leaders and cultures to be at the speed of the customer. These ideas don’t necessarily come from a single industry either. The ideas economy is based on disruption from non-industry players and from seemingly dissimilar expertise areas as well as nearby competitors. A strategy in this new world has to be driven by multi-industry influences and learning from all dissimilar areas to your company. This makes every company a technology, data and a platform business. This talk will focus on why transformation is a rigid form of thinking as compared to agile and will showcase with examples/case studies how agility redefines a people strategy at the intersections (of industries, technologies, and the future of work.) The Agile HR Model will be discussed, and includes people practices of succession, performance management, workforce planning, and employee experiences. Participants, in addition to being engaged in a positive, imaginative, and example-centric manner, will also be engaged through an online instant poll to reflect on some of the topics like gig talent, simplicity in HR, smart interfaces, and use of analytics.
