Ep. 75: How HR leaders can shape the future of work.

The workforce is changing, and we must change with it. In fact, HR is going through the same disruption as Marketing went through 10-15 years ago with the rise of technology. “HR departments that grasp the value of the ‘digital workforce experience’ and its role in keeping people happy, productive, and engaged will lead the charge into the future. Those who don’t will find themselves woefully behind”.

HR has historically been focus on processes, policies and compliance. HR leaders must seize this formidable opportunity to bring the “human” function at a more strategic level in our organizations, leveraging the power of digital to break down the silos, bring EX advocates from HR, Marketing, Recruiting, Customer Experience, Operations, IT together to build a frictionless workforce experience, designed with and for the people they serve: the employees.

Jason Averbook is a global thought leader, an agent for change in HR, and the CEO/Co-Founder of Leapgen. He is also author of the book, “The Ultimate Guide To A Digital Workforce Experience”.
