With the digital revolution gathering pace and creating change in almost everything we do the world of talent acquisition is no different. However a recent substantial research report from Deloitte highlights how few organisations are truly embracing the technology potential in HR and Talent activity. Those that do will start to see an unfair advantage in attracting top talent particular in digital skills and cyber.
With more than 10,000 HR and business leaders in 140 countries weighing in, this massive study reveals that business leaders are turning to new organization models, which highlight the networked nature of today’s world of work. However, as business productivity often fails to keep pace with technological progress, Deloitte finds that HR leaders are struggling to keep up, with only 35 percent of them rating their capabilities as ‘good’ or ‘excellent.’ “As technology, artificial intelligence, and robotics transform business models and work, companies should start to rethink their management practices and organizational models,” said Brett Walsh, global human capital leader for Deloitte Global. “The future of work is driving the development of a set of ‘new rules’ that organizations should follow if they want to remain competitive.”
