Hot Topics - The View from the Bridge: HR Leaders Tell it Like it Is (and Will Be!)

Trends in workforce management come and go, but senior-level HR executives are expected to be conversant in both the traditional and cutting edge strategies. Our four panelists represent an array of industries and sectors; they lead HR efforts in enterprises from small start-ups to large, major corporations. But all of them face the challenge of defining their roles in the face of pressures, unanticipated issues and hard choices:

  • What is the right balance for positioning HR between core people skills and "evidence-based HR"?
  • With limited resources, what skill sets do we need on our teams today and for tomorrow? How do we attract those individuals to our organizations?
  • How do we utilize and address statistical analysis, digital communication, visual thinking, numerical reasoning, organizational design, robotics implications, employee experience design and talent attraction, development and retention?
  • How are we/will we deal with contingent workers? How do we need to change how we assess performance, develop and speed up team building with this constituency?   How do we stay focused in the face of unexpected turmoil?
