Rewriting the rules for the digital age
Organisations face a radically shifting context for the workforce, the workplace, and the world of work. Our survey of more than 10,000 business and HR leaders from 140 countries reveals 10 areas for businesses to focus on to better organise, manage, develop, and align people at work. By Deloitte University Press.
A number of converging issues are driving the need to “rewrite the rules.” Technology is advancing at an unprecedented rate. Individuals are relatively quick to adapt to ongoing innovations, but organisations move at a slower pace. Many still retain industrial age structure and practices that are long outdated. Even slower moving are public policy issues, such as income inequality, unemployment, immigration, and trade.
It’s these gaps among technology, individuals, businesses, and public policy that are creating a unique opportunity for HR to help leaders and organisations adapt to technology, help people adapt to new models of work and careers, and help the company as a whole adapt to and encourage positive changes in society, regulation, and public policy.
