Digital transformation—the product of new technologies, connections, data, and business opportunities—is radically changing many industries and organizations. Companies will need new strategic capabilities to compete in the digital economy. More than two-thirds of companies expect to develop new core business lines as a result of digital trends. However, according to an MIT survey, only 44 percent say they are preparing adequately. In fact, many business leaders overlook the human capital implications altogether. HR professionals need to bridge the gap. The ones that are succeeding tend to think more like marketers, leverage aggregate workforce data, focus on employee experience, and leverage the use of modern technologies in the cloud.

Practical Insights:

  • Steps you can take to start on this critical journey to secure HR relevance into the next decade
  • The new world of data, the cloud, and consumer technology changes how we live and work
  • How organizations can leverage machine learning, robotic process automation, and "No UI" technologies to win
