Imagine a human resources application that runs on your phone, knows your location, and recommends people with which to network. It provides continuous onboarding and transition assistance. It also evaluates time-management aptitude to help improve productivity, automatically assess work behaviors, offer feedback on improving work-life balance, and offer on-the-job skills training. It may even share exercise and healthy eating tips where and when you need them.

Are you prepared to be disrupted?

Benko Disruption

Posted by Cathy Benko on May 14, 2014

In our recent Deloitte Review article, Disrupting the CHRO: Following in the CFO’s footsteps, my co-authors and I explore the transformation of the CHRO role in the era of talent scarcity — which is proving to be a bumpy road. There are a number of reasons for this: the shift in corporate value creation, for example. In the 1960s, 60 percent of value was derived from tangible assets, while today, 85 percent stems from intangibles such as intellectual property, brand, and people. This increased reliance on knowledge work is at least as important as the need for companies to attract and retain technical talent and other STEM specialists—and both imperatives are raising the stakes for CHROs.

What’s on the minds of CLOs?

What’s on the minds of CLOs?

Posted by Amy A. Titus and Josh Haims on December 3, 2013

Through our work and discussion with well over a hundred Chief Learning Officers (CLOs), we’ve observed their increasing interest in understanding the many moving forces that are impacting the marketplace and workplace on a global level. There’s a sense that CLOs, like the world around them, are in motion. We examine five forces below that are contributing to this concept of moving forces.

Reconciling global and local
We’re seeing a new urgency around a conversation that’s been ongoing for several years — the topic is how to organize and scale learning operations to support the global enterprise; the urgency is around knowing what actually works. How are companies achieving consistency across the enterprise but still allowing flexibility for certain regions, businesses, or disciplines? It’s a far more strategic conversation today about the complex process of building and sustaining a workable, agile learning operation.

Using Analytics to Drive Sales Performance

HR Times Video Blog: Insights from IBM Vision 2013

Vision 2013

Posted by Rob Dicks and Merritt Alberti August 13, 2013

Analytics is playing an increasing role in helping organizations improve the way they manage sales and their sales force. Do they have the right salespeople in the right places? Are they selling the right products to the right clients at the right price? Is the compensation program effective, competitive, and understandable? These are the questions analytics is helping them answer, using automated technology like IBM Cognos ICM to replace what is often a home-grown solution. It’s an effort that typically involves not only the sales group, but also HR, Finance, and of course, IT.

Listen in as Rob Dicks and Merritt Alberti talk to HR Times about their experiences helping companies implement sales performance analytics and how it’s helping them grow, manage commissions and other aspects of sales operations more effectively, and keep tabs on regulatory requirements.
