"HR 2014 Future Trend findings by Bersin of Deloitte Analyst based on interviews with organizations on the Future of HR."
1. Talent Management Defines HR
Microsoft's recently announced they've done away with forced ranking. ...HR's role was to spearhead this change - beyond the basics (payroll, employee relations, time and attendance, compliance.) The basics are NOT enough to be competitive.
2. Integrated Talent Management Has Shifted to Optimized Talent Management. ... "Optimization" = how can they better compete to attract, retain, and engage their aging workforce?
3. HR Business Partner Roles Have to Change Dramatically
This item features a special performance consulting group...of five senior HR specialists (staffing, OD, learning, labor relations) working on special talent projects. They diagnosed a problem in one unit as a lack of employment brand in one of the areas they serve. They worked with the recruiting team to build a local, highly tuned employment branding program - with internships, local universities and new sourcing tools - to gain access to engineers. Within a few quarters the problem started to go away.
Could a generalist have done this without a lot of help? Unlikely.
4. Business Thinking and Data Are Now Critical to Success
...build talent analytics and workforce planning capabilities so [HR] can prove that we're delivering impact.
