The Next Phase of HR Transformation

NOVEMBER 12, 2020


The rate of business transformation is accelerating as organizations try to stay ahead of turbulent events – not least the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. HR has a key role to play in 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 being a proactive business partner. Comprehensive research by The Conference Board - which includes a global an international survey, case studies, and focus groups with nearly 100 over 80 HR executives - reveals that leading businesses are urgently looking for new ways to deploy HR capability for maximum flexibility and impact. This webcast provides examples of how leading organizations are dismantling outmoded structures and silos to work in increasingly “fluid” ways across the enterprise.

key takeaways:

  • 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.
  • Consider a range of HR operating approaches and how these might give your organization a competitive edge in unlocking the potential of human capital.
