About the Talk:
HR’s role is going through a tremendous change in an exponentially changing world and the old HR-processes and policies are today outdated for a modern organization that wants to remain competitive. Why is continuous learning so important and how can HR help and support to create the conditions necessary to succeed, instead of hindering people with too many stifling structures?
Why do HR need to go first, leading the change towards greater people and business agility and why do we need to abolish the old, outdated performance management process? In this talk you get the answers to these questions and also a deeper understanding for how recruitment, compensation and benefits, learning and development and succession and career planning changes during an agile transformation. You learn how can HR create the necessary conditions for everybody to change, unlearning and relearning new skills for an organization that is fit for the future and for people.
