Q WHAT ARE THE MAJOR CHALLENGES FACING HR TODAY?
LAURA PEARCE, CAHRI
HR CONSULTANT -- DIVERSITY AT BOEING
I still feel that a major challenge for HR is measuring the tangible return
on investment (ROI) of people and culture-related activity. All too often,
lag indicators are used over lead indicators, which don't help support ROI
of critical HR business activity. I'm really passionate about diversity and
inclusion and see this being a core people strategy in supporting organisations
increasing innovation, productivity and performance. However, it continues
to be a hard and slow agenda to demonstrate ROI for organisations.
Hear more from Laura about best practice inclusion and diversity strategy,
and why it matters more than ever in today's business environment -- page 50.
ELIZABETH NUNEZ, FAHRI
NATIONAL HR DIRECTOR, RSM AUSTRALIA
Our biggest HR challenge is understanding what the workforce of the future
will look like and how this will impact our HR value proposition. However,
given there is no certainty as to what the future will bring due to the fast pace
of change -- HR must also be capable of dealing with ambiguity. This means
having access to reliable intelligent data to help us make better and quicker
decisions, enabling us to take a lead role.
What can you do to build your HR skills for the future?
Elizabeth shares her top three tips for practitioners -- page 47.
GEORGIA SIABANIS, FCPHR
MANAGING DIRECTOR, WORKPLACE MANAGEMENT NETWORK
HR is leaving its image as a 'back-room function' and taking its place as
a true strategic partner. Practitioners are focusing more on developing
engagement and talent in light of intense global, regional and local change.
HR is also dealing with data -- what to measure, how to measure it and
what it reveals? We need to be developing leaders who are courageous while
maintaining a strong culture and values. Practitioners will learn a great deal
and help their businesses transform to successful new levels.
After achieving HR certification in Canada, Georgia saw fit to undertake AHRI's
certification pathway to cement her status as business partner -- page 24.
