DRIVING PEOPLE AND WORKPLACE INNOVATION IN THE DIGITAL ERA
Digital is here and most organizations have now embarked upon the journey towards digital transformation. However being digital is not merely doing digital, it requires a new mindset, and quite often, significant leadership and cultural changes as well. Subsequently, there is now a pressing mandate for HR and business professionals to embrace digital and its associated transformation tasks. The rapid changes occurring for the organization and HR now present a whole new landscape for the future of work, the organization, management practices, and businesses in general.
WHY DIGITAL HR AND WHY NOW?
Companies when they think Digital they think Information Technology – however, it’s much more about People than IT. To harness the cognitive capacity of people we must move from industrial digital to human digital.
What is the single most critical element of digital transformation? It is culture. You have to change the culture if you want to be succesful in the digital world.
I wouldn’t see digital HR as a disruption element or a cause or case for disruption, I would rather see it as an enabler for HR. HR used to have a hammer and a screwdriver to fix things, today they have a super well equipped toolbox to do that. The only thing they have to figure out is what to use each tool for.
