Welcome To The Post-Work Economy

Welcome To The Post-Work Economy | Better Work Better Life | Scoop.it
f the goal of the economy is to provide decent-paying work for everyone, that economy clearly isn't doing a good job at the moment. Real wages for most Americans haven't increased in 40 years. Real unemployment—which includes the "under-employed"—is above 10%. Many jobs are now part-time, flexi-time, or "gigs" with no benefits and few protections. And, we spend a lot of money to subsidize so-called "bullshit jobs": more than 50% of fast food workers receive some form of public assistance, for instance.

Human Capital Trends 2016 | Deloitte | Introduction

Human Capital Trends 2016 | Deloitte | Introduction | Better Work Better Life | Scoop.it
Is your organisation ready? Download the global report Download the UK supplement Sweeping global forces are reshaping the workplace, the workforce, and work itself. After years of struggling to drive employee engagement and retention, improve leadership, and build a meaningful culture, executives see a need to redesign the organisation. Four powerful forces—from demographic upheavals and the rise of digital technology to rapid business-model innovation, and socially driven evolution in the employer-employee relationship - are driving change for both HR functions and the organisations they serve, creating talent challenges and potential solutions radically different from those faced by previous generations of leaders. Explore the report and infographic Go to Deloitte University Press Join the authors on 8 March 2016 for our #HCTrends twitter chat Register for the Global HC Trends 2016 MOOC Created in collaboration with Columbia University’s School of Professional Studies. Read this year’s 10 trends on Deloitte University Press Introduction: The new organisation By: Josh Bersin, Jason Geller, Nicky Wakefield, and Brett Walsh CEOs and HR leaders are focused on understanding and creating a shared culture, designing a work environment that engages people, and constructing a new model of leadership and career development. Organisational design: The rise of teams By: Tiffany McDowell, Dimple Agarwal, Don Miller, Tsutomu Okamoto, and Trevor Page Hierarchical organisational models aren’t just being turned upside down—they’re being deconstructed from the inside out. Businesses are reinventing themselves to operate as networks of teams to keep pace with the challenges of a fluid, unpredictable world. Leadership awakened: Generations, teams, science By: Nicky Wakefield, Anthony Abbatiello, Dimple Agarwal, Karen Pastakia, and Ardie van Berkel Leaders of all ages, genders, and cultures are now poised to take the reins at organisations around the world. How ready will these future business leaders be to take charge in an increasingly complex global marketplace? Culture: Shape culture, drive strategy By: Marc Kaplan, Ben Dollar, Veronica Melian, Yves van Durme, and Jungle Wong The impact of culture on business is hard to overstate: 82 percent of respondents to the Global Human Capital Trends 2016 survey believe that culture is a potential competitive advantage. Today, new tools can help leaders measure and manage culture towards alignment with. Engagement: Always on By: David Brown, Josh Bersin, Will Gosling, and Nathan Sloan Employee engagement and retention today means understanding an empowered workforce’s desire for flexibility, creativity, and purpose. Under the evolving social contract between employer and employee, workers become “volunteers” to be reengaged and re-recruited each day. Learning: Employees take charge By: Bill Pelster, Josh Haims, Jen Stempel, and Bernard van der Vyver Corporate learning departments are changing from education providers to content curators and experience facilitators, developing innovative platforms that turn employee learning and development into a self-driven pursuit. Design thinking: Crafting the employee experience By: Josh Bersin, Marc Solow, and Nicky Wakefield Design thinking takes aim at the heart of unnecessary workplace complexity by putting the employee experience first—helping to improve productivity by designing solutions that are at once compelling, enjoyable, and simple. HR: Growing momentum toward a new mandate By: Erica Volini, Art Mazor, Frank Schaefer, Akio Tsuchida, and Brett Walsh Good news: This year’s Global Human Capital Trends 2016 survey shows an improvement in the HR organisation’s skills, business alignment, and ability to innovate. But as companies change the way they are organised, they must embrace the changing role of HR as well. People analytics: Gaining speed By: Josh Bersin, Laurence Collins, David Mallon, Jeff Moir, and Robert Straub The use of analytics in HR is growing, with organisations aggressively building people analytics teams, buying analytics offerings, and developing analytics solutions. HR now has the chance to demonstrate ROI on its analytics efforts, helping to make the case for further investment. Digital HR: Revolution, not evolution By: Michael Stephan, Shinichiro Uzawa, Erica Volini, Brett Walsh, and Roberta Yoshida A new world for HR technology and design teams is on the horizon. Mobile and other technologies could allow HR leaders to revolutionise the employee experience through new digital platforms, apps, and ways of delivering HR services. The gig economy: Distraction or disruption? By: Jeff Schwartz, Udo Bohdal-Spiegelhoff, Michael Gretczko, and Nathan Sloan How can a business manage talent effectively when many, or even most, of its people are not actually its employees? Networks of people who work without any formal employment agreement—as well as the growing use of machines as talent—are reshaping the talent management equation. Key findings in the UK Download the UK supplement report Download the UK findings infographic 9 in 10 UK organisations are redesigning: 92 percent of UK HR and business leaders see redesigning their organisation as their most important priority. To address this, 42 percent of UK respondents say they are currently restructuring their organisation and 49 percent have recently completed the process. Power to the employee: Lack of employee engagement is an issue currently facing 80 percent of UK HR and business leaders. Yet, only 36 percent report that they are prepared to tackle engagement issues. Importance of company culture: 87 percent of UK respondents rate challenges with corporate culture – the values, beliefs, behaviours and reward systems that influence people’s behaviour on a day-to-day basis – as “important” or “very important”. However, almost two-thirds of executives do not feel they are effectively driving the desired culture within their organisations. Leadership issues remain: For the first time in two years, leadership has fallen from the most pressing concern for UK organisations, to the third most important trend. However, despite its fall in HR and business executive’s priorities, leadership continues to lag behind in UK companies. Fifty-nine percent say their companies are not ready to meet their leadership needs and only 13 per cent of respondents believe they are “excellent” at maintaining clear and current succession plans and programmes. Our UK supplement report explores which trends are most important here, any key differences with the global findings, and what this means for UK organisations.
