The revolution impacting businesses is not only a matter of technology. It’s about culture and behaviors, supported by technology. As the consumer world is experiencing a radical disruption, thinking that businesses will be still be able to exist and operate the old way in a fast changing world is illusory.
First because businesses must organize to respond to markets differently.
Second because employees are people like their customers with expectations, values behaviors and even a DNA that have evolved in the same way.
New skills, competence mix, career management, ways to attract candidates…it all requires a new tooling, often inspired by he consumer world. New technologies are required to operate new HR practices at scale in a reliable way but are not enough if they don’t serve a new vision of HR and of the future of work.
Future Of Work. That’s precisely the words standing in the middle of the upcoming London edition of HR Tech World Conference on the 15th and 16th of march.
During two days and through more and one hundred sessions, businesses from various industries will present their innovative HR practices on the following matters :
â€¢ Talents et recruitment
â€¢ Smart Data
â€¢ Social Enterprise
Besides that, Master classes and keynotes will help to make sense of the future of HR and foster one’s vision. Having had a conversation with the organisers about this point, the strategic and “visionary” side of the conference will be reinforced compared to the last Paris Edition and, apparently, in lane with many topics I’m advocating. Namely the consumerization of HR practices and the raise of employee experience not only as a cornerstone of HR strategy but also of a sustainably performing business in a digital world.
To back that, the conference will have Simon Sinek as a keynote speaker, who will surely make the link between customer and employee experience (and, by so doing, replace HR at the center of digital transformation) and Peter Hinsenn who will surely share his bright vision of a networked world. Two very entrepreneurial visions that can help to position HR not as the “water-carrier” but as one of the main partners in digital transformation.
What I’m expecting to find at HR Tech World London ? Both a blueprint to build the future of HR that will enable the future of work and concrete examples of what the most mature businesses are already doing to transform their HR practices.
