Re-examining HR's Role in 2023

HR’s effectiveness and strategic partnership are stronger than ever. Though HR priorities have remained mostly static year over year, there’s an emerging need for HR to enhance their strategic skillset and monitor increasing HR stress and burnout levels.


Expanding the Employee Experience Conversation

Whether a team is remote, onsite, or hybrid is less important than curating the employee experience beyond the physical boundaries of work. With this shift in focus, an Employee Value Proposition (EVP) that effectively communicates what the organization provides to employees is more important than ever.


Making Space for DEI

Organizations’ sense of urgency and focus on the long-term work required for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion is on the downturn, despite the massive impact of such work. The data points to a need to refocus on governance, leadership buy-in, and strategic discussions around DEI in order to effectively continue the DEI journey.


Charting the Course to HR Digitization

HR digitization requires a customized approach in order to achieve strategic value for both HR departments and the organization. Successful HR digitization can be the differentiator between transactional HR and HR strategic business partnership. While many organizations have already reaped the benefits of HR digitization, many others are facing roadblocks on their HR digitiz­­­ation journeys.


The Struggle to Close Skill Gaps
