Harvard Business Review believe digital disruption is impacting three key areas where global human resources play a part:
Enterprise: the huge volume of data we can now access and analyse is accelerating the pace of enterprise. Global HR has the opportunity to foster innovation and agility through employee development and encourage enterprise with a partnership ecosystem.
Workforce: career length is increasing but so is the need for continuous learning so employees can keep up with changing demands for their skills and talents. Many employees will end their careers performing roles that did not exist when they began, highlighting the essential role that training, and career development must play.
Process: most industries do not fully understand how digital transformation is going to impact the way they get work done. Many, like the retail industry, are in a state of flux. Some retailers have embraced digital transformation and are offering seamless omnichannel shopping experiences whether online or instore while others lag behind. The reality is as,change happens in every industry how work gets done will change in ways we can only imagine. Global HR must have a model that enables workforce collaboration to anticipate the need for process change.
