The workforce of the future will be more agile, more focused on projects and will thrive in an environment where employees are given opportunities to be creative, inspired and fulfilled.
Fourth Annual List Highlights Those Helping to Innovate and Transform the Industry
PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla., May 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Human Resource Executive® and the HR Technology Conference & Exposition® today announced the 2022 Top 100 HR Tech Influencers. Now in its fourth year, the annual list spotlights leaders and experts across a wide range of fields, each consistently making an impact with their work in HR technology and helping organizations solve HR pain points.
Meetings in the near future may take place in the “metaverse,” a network of 3D virtual worlds that will be powered by leading social media and software giants like Facebook, Apple and Microsoft. And, according to new research, younger employees are ready for this new paradigm—which means HR needs to be ready, too.
If there was any skepticism that we are in the clutches of a full-on labor shortage in the United States, the most recent Bureau of Labor Statistics data confirmed that fewer than 7 million unemployed workers were available to fill 11 million jobs posted in December of last year, equaling 1.7 openings for every available worker. Other highlights included multiple months of increasing voluntary job quits, the lowest level of seasonal worker layoffs on record and a 4.5% increase in wages and salaries over the last three months of the year. And this isn’t just a U.S.-based issue: Sapient Insights’ 2021-2022 Annual HR Systems Survey of over 2,000 organizations found that the ability to attract top talent was 10% lower than last year for EMEA and Asia-Pacific headquartered organizations—pointing to a global talent shortage. With the current labor environment, organizations must work to address the ever-ethereal topic of workforce planning.
HR leaders are in the strangest and most challenging environment and must adapt quickly and decisively if they are to survive and thrive in the coming months. This was the warning from HR industry analyst Josh Bersin in his keynote address about the future of the HR tech market at HR Tech Virtual.
The tech world may be marching into the future on a path lit by artificial intelligence and machine learning, but most human resource leaders are spending their days trying to solve challenges around talent acquisition, retention and the Great Resignation.
As one of the few American companies that claims it hasn’t suffered greatly from the Great Resignation, General Motors’ recruiters still have their work cut out for them. In order to move its production to electric vehicles in the coming decade, GM’s team of 150 talent recruitment specialists needs to hire 12,000 new workers this year.
As the Great Resignation grinds on, HR leaders are turning to technology and new ideas to retain valuable talent and develop burgeoning careers. HRE spoke with Josh Bersin, industry analyst and HRE columnist, ahead of his opening keynote address at the HR Tech Virtual conference at 11 a.m. March 1. Entitled “Change, Challenges and Opportunities: What’s Ahead for HR and the Technology Market,” the presentation will examine the importance of internal mobility, effective approaches to skills and capability development, EX imperatives for hybrid and deskless workforces, and new models of leadership. In this Q&A, Bersin describes the technology to look out for and what employees need to stay connected to their employers.
Keynote speakers at the upcoming free online event also will shine a light on talent retention, the role of purpose, the state of the HR tech market and more.
