Next-Generation HR: Fluid and Adaptive

January 2021 | Research Report

In today’s fast-paced and ever-changing business environment, HR must move swiftly and decisively to meet urgent business needs. This report distills the insights of over 100 HR executives and results of a global survey of over 700 HR professionals, interviews, and case study examples. This evidence reveals that successful HR transformation is a subset of business transformation and delivers business impact— and for companies that rely heavily on people for competitive advantage—the boundary between business and HR transformation is increasingly blurred.
