HR processes are changing. And, with the global skills crisis, HR Directors are struggling to attract and retain the best talent. Their departments are in flux, and 77% of organisations report a perceived lack of strategic value from HR.* If you’re going to win the war for talent, your organisation will need to make a radical change. It must transform its HR and become a People Company, utilising people data and analytics to make decisions based on real evidence. This will improve the way you interact with current and future employees, providing great workforce experiences. The result will be a more committed and engaged workforce, and increased interest in joining your organisation. From a business perspective too, you’ll benefit through higher levels of productivity, efficiency and improved performance and engagement.
