#Nextchat: #SHRMLive16 Making the 21st Century Workplace Work


As the demand for talent continues to intensify, the year ahead will see new challenges as organizations race to innovate and refine their talent management strategies.  

Due to the massive revolution that’s occurring in the way organizations find and develop talent, HR professionals will require new competencies to strategically evolve their organizations—especially in the areas of predictive analytics and performance management.

Through technology, organizations now have access to vast amounts of data and need to understand how to use it to find patterns that will help drive better process, policy and hiring decisions. The demand for HR professionals who can interpret analytics, and use data to influence strategy and progress, will continue to grow. 

Additionally, new trends in performance management, where “no ratings” and more frequent feedback are replacing the traditional annual review, are becoming more popular, and HR professionals will need to find new ways to implement change within their organizations.

On December 14, SHRM will host SHRM Live 2016: Making the 21st Century Workplace Work—a virtual event that will take a deep dive into predictive analytics and performance management trends. Participants will learn from SHRM experts, external experts, and other HR practitioners and peers as they interact with each other in a thought-provoking livestreamed event—offered free of charge to SHRM members.
