The world is moving on with digital transformation irrespective of industries, countries and service lines. Organizations want to adopt the technologies in faster paces, especially by “Digital Megatrends”: mobility, analytics, cloud computing and social media.
This digital evolution is also reshaping the role of Human Resources. It involves deepening and broadening collaboration between HR and other business units to improve the performance and analysis of talent management, and a greater focus on driving business results through the strategic use of technology. It’s important for executives to get engaged in long-term strategic planning for business needs and even leveraging their organizations to drive profits.
So to compete successfully in the new digital economy, HR should:
■ Use technology effectively to execute on business imperatives and extend collaboration with other departments, incorporating mobile, analytics, social media and the cloud to ease the transition to a strategic role.
■ Consider the competitive risk of not leveraging technology to contribute to business strategy. Organizations in developed economies are not adopting technology as quickly as their counterparts in fast-growing economies and may risk being left behind in the global competition for talent.
