ARE YOU ACTIVELY PLANNING FOR THE HR DIGITAL REVOLUTION?
The HR digital revolution is here and moving at rapid speed, and organizations are looking for new, effective, productive ways to meet the evolving demands of doing business—agility, 24/7 global access, speed and accuracy. Leading organizations know they need to disrupt or be disrupted, so they have begun to create entirely new work environments that we now call the digital workplace revolution. It is changing the way we think and approach everyday work.
HOW IS BUSINESS DISRUPTION AFFECTING HR DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION?
Let’s start with the big picture. The business world is changing faster than ever. You most likely have experienced companies transforming industries, such as Airbnb, Amazon, and the food delivery industry in Blue Apron and Home Chef. These are popular examples of organizations that have transformed their industries into something different—something more. Under Armour is not just selling shirts and shoes; it is connecting 38 million people on a digital health platform. Facebook is not just a social network; it is the largest media company even though it doesn’t create content. Alibaba is not just the largest e-commerce company; it is a financial services and technology company blurring industry lines. Transformed companies can create new industries.
Think back five years to what your experience as a consumer was like. Hasn’t it changed significantly? As consumers, we can now buy just about anything from our smartphones at any time, from anywhere in the world, and have it delivered to us wherever we happen to be, sometimes that same day. We perform daily essential functions from our smartphones, such as banking, remotely regulating the heat in our homes, renting a vacation home anywhere in the world directly from the owner, letting friends know we have checked into a restaurant, or ordering products to be replenished when they run out, and the list goes on.
