Proactively prepare the organization’s talent for the risks of tomorrow by uncovering HR initiatives to implement today.
Organizations focus on finding operational and financial solutions to external risks without evaluating how talent can be part of the solution. When HR is not involved early on, by the time the talent implications are apparent, the damage is already done.
This is further complicated by a VUCA climate where there is less time to rectify errors before organizational survival is threatened.
Managing risks must go beyond maintaining the status quo. HR departments that anticipate and proactively plan for the talent implications of external risks not only survive but thrive through challenging times.
Impact and Result
Conduct an environmental scan to identify and prioritize external risks according to their likelihood, impact, and HR relevance.
Create scenarios to anticipate the talent implications of the prioritized risks.
Identify HR initiatives that enable organizations to survive and thrive in a VUCA world with the use of three principles: proactive implementation, plan now for the future, and opportunity for growth.
