Human Resources is slowly evolving beyond its legacy focus of compliance and delivering compensation and benefits. Increasingly prominent in its agenda is supporting strategic workforce productivity, engagement and talent strategies. Our recent data reports:
- Only 59% of employees feel their HR department is doing a ‘good’ or ‘great’ job
- 42% of employees took six months or more to add value in their current job
- 45% of HR professionals say they developed a stronger interest in workforce productivity and tooling over the past three years
- 64% of HR departments have a strategy to improve employee engagement
In the wake of COVID-19, HR has become a more powerful presence in the C-suite. More than ever before, organizational leaders are relying on the People function to help navigate mass-scale shifts to remote work, manage hiring freezes and furloughs, engage employees around the company mission, and develop a talent strategy to support the path back to growth.
In this webinar 451 Research’s lead analyst on HR strategies, Conner Forrest, and workforce productivity analyst Chris Marsh will discuss the new priorities for HR and how it’s evolving into a foundational accelerant of digital transformation strategies.
