The pandemic accelerated businesses adoption and reliance on technology, data and digital workforce solutions, and changes in new technology and the influx of younger generations caused a shift in the normal ways of working. Employees now expect an increasing level of digital delivery within their workplace experiences. This has resulted in organizations evaluating their HR strategy to ensure they have the right skills and tools in place to meet both business needs and the expectations of future workforces, while attracting and retaining the right talent today.
HR professionals who want to harness the opportunities of a ‘digital first’ mindset and cultivate the right skills and talent required to stay competitive and relevant for the future, will need to enhance and evolve the way they manage, care for, and support their people by understanding and planning for changes in technology, society, and processes.
