Where Can HR Have the Biggest Business Impact in 2015?
The conversation about how and when HR professionals can get a "seat at the table" has been occurring for decades, but a lesser discussed topic is what happens once HR finally does get to pull up a chair next to the C-suite.
It's a question few business leaders have solved. The annual global CEO survey from PricewaterhouseCoopers found only 34 percent of CEOs feel HR is well-prepared to capitalize on transformational talent trends. Faced with multiple avenues of talent management and limited resources, HR professionals need to understand how to determine the most critical and impactful areas for their organization.
Take Your Pick: The HR Challenges of 2015
Our upcoming webinar, Where Can HR Have the Biggest Business Impact in 2015?, will tackle the question of how HR can better align with company goals. On March 26, join three HR experts and Jason Corsello, VP of Cornerstone OnDemand, as they debate where HR leaders should focus their resources to create a more business-centric talent management program.
For example, increasing employee engagement seems to be a clear priority across industries — last year Gallup reported only 13 percent of the global workforce is highly engaged — but there's no standout solution. And aside from engaging full-time employees, HR leaders must also address the needs of contingent workers, who now make up 34 percent of the workforce. What tools can integrate contractors and freelancers into company culture?
These questions only scratch the surface. With several issues and solutions at hand, our panelists will weigh in on different trends and explain how they affect the bottom line. A few of the topics covered will include:
- Performance Management: Should employers get rid of traditional, end-of-year performance reviews? What is the impact of ongoing, social feedback on employee effectiveness?
- Talent Mobility/Succession Planning: Can mobility programs keep your organization competitive and reduce recruitment needs?
- Overloaded Employees: Employees are overwhelmed by too much technology, too much information and too much work. To what extent should HR step in to ensure better employee engagement and productivity?
- Learning Systems: The LMK market is experiencing a renaissance, and is expected to grow by 23% over the five years. What's the value of prioritizing the development of a "learning culture"?
- Big Data and Analytics: Many people claim analytics is key to making talent management more strategic. But does it make sense for every company? What does it take to use data effectively?
Register now to hear from Katherine Jones (VP of HCM Technology Research at Bersin by Deloitte), Ray Wang (founder and chairman of Constellation Research), and William Tincup (principal analyst of KeyInterval Research) on where HR can have the biggest business impact this year.
