Join this keynote session from Dave Ulrich to learn about the evolutions in HR value creation in a work context that is dramatically changing through social expectations, digital technology, economic transitions, political uncertainties, environmental responsibility, and demographics.
Some of the key points addressed in this keynote include:
• HR stakeholders are broadening. Who are the customers who get value from HR? Traditional HR customers are within the organization. Increasingly, HR stakeholders are outside the company.
• HR is not about HR, but creating value for others. Value is not defined by what HR does, but by how it impacts others.
• HR unique contributions. HR should ask: do we have the right talent, leadership, and organization to add value, to deliver strategy, serve customers, gain confidence from investors, and build reputation with communities?
• Talent is evolving as needs and skills are augmented by digital technologies; HR needs to help employees find a sense of community and purpose.
• Organization evolution: pivoting from seeing the organization as roles and hierarchy to capabilities that deliver value to the marketplace.
• Leadership evolution: moving from a focus on the individual “hero” leader to a shared leadership capability embedded throughout the organization.
• HR departments govern work. The HR department should reflect the logic and governance of the business.
• HR practices solve problems. Isolated HR activities need to be bundled to create value.
• HR competencies have impact. HR professionals need to reinvent themselves to deliver value.
