A quick review of the latest blogs and articles and it becomes apparent that the HR narrative is changing. Terms like artificial intelligence (AI), gig-economy, inclusion and respect, technology disruption, design thinking, and the internet of things have crept into our workplace lingo.
Consider the following findings:
- McKinsey & Company research finds that workers across the globe will have to learn completely new skills in the next 10 years because of automation and the transition to AI and robotics.
- According to a report by Deloitte, very few organizations feel they have a strong HR team in place that can analyze data, even though many say they are ready to begin using predictive analytics.
- About seven in 10 Americans believe that the job search today is too impersonal, according to survey results from the American Staffing Association. Nevertheless, many believe technology has made finding a job easier.
- The International Foundation of Employee Benefit Plan’s (IFEBP) report on workplace wellness trends reveals companies are looking at ways to increase overall employee well-being by offering exercise breaks, health coaching, social celebrations, and opportunities to participate in charity events in the community.
Indeed, the employment life cycle is no longer business as usual. Now is the time to connect with others to get ideas and find out the latest initiatives so your organization isn’t left behind!
