The world of work is increasingly virtual, transparent, collaborative and dispersed. Organizations are flatter. Corporate citizenship is playing an ever larger role in our ability to acquire, engage, retain and develop our employees— and our brands. The result? The corporate ladder model is collapsing only to be replaced by the corporate lattice. In this HCI Keynote, Cathy Benko, Vice Chairman and Managing Principal at Deloitte, and co-author of the “Corporate Lattice: Achieving High Performance in the Changing World of Work,” discusses these trends and explains that the emerging lattice model enables organizations to raise engagement, productivity and profitability.
Key insights include:
- Why fundamental shifts in demography, culture and technology have driven the corporate ladder model into obsolescence
- Key characteristics of the lattice structure (multi-directional career paths, virtual work, increased collaboration, etc.)
- How HR’s relevancy depends on its ability to drive business results, leverage data and curate the talent experience
