DRIVING PEOPLE AND WORKPLACE INNOVATION IN THE DIGITAL ERA
With HR being pulled quickly into the world of digital ‘disruption’, there is now a strong mandate for HR professionals to embrace digital and its associated transformation tasks with vigor. The rapid changes occurring for the organization and HR now present a whole new landscape for the future of work, the role of HR in digital transformation, the organization, and management practices. Companies are seeking improvement on organizational effectiveness through digital workplace practices in order to optimize people investments. The 2018 Digital HR Summit series hence enables business leaders and HR decision makers to connect and share ideas on how the adoption of Digital Workplace capabilities and the latest HR trends are able to revolutionize people practices for better business outcomes.
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.
